Happy National French Toast Day…Vegan Style

When you think of November holidays, Veteran’s Day, Election Day and Thanksgiving most readily come to mind. But as a huuuge fan of breakfast foods, I was down right giddy to learn that one of my all-time favs has its own day of dedication this month.

November 28th is National French Toast Day, people! What a glorious holiday, just glorious indeed.

v's vegan french toast!

I could kiss the brilliant soul who decided French toast was so grand it deserved its own day of recognition. I wholeheartedly agree!

Even though I’m still stuffed to the brim with Tofurkey and all the yummy vegan sides, I felt compelled to honor today’s holiday. I mean, I really don’t see that I had a choice in the matter. In order to celebrate this national day appropriately, I was practically forced to make French toast…veganized, but of course. 

And as luck would have it, the secret ingredient for making extra-deelish French toast is plenty available this time of year. Because it’s the holiday season, you can find Soy Nog  just about everywhere. And let me just tell you, Soy Nog isn’t just for chilly nights by the fire. It’s the absolute best way to seriously fancy up some French toast.

Here’s my recipe. And as are all of lil miss vegan’s recipes, I promise it’s nearly foolproof. Trust the biggest kitchen fool of them all…yours truly.


What you’ll need to make 3 slices of vegan French toast:

  • 3 slices of multi-grain bread
  • 1/2 cup of Silk Nog
  • 1/4 tsp. of vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup of whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 tsp. of cinnamon
  • organic canola oil for the pan

Mix soy nog, vanilla, flour and cinnamon in a bowl. Soak bread in mixture and add to the canola lined pan. Be extra careful because the oil will splatter. Cook each side of the bread until golden brown.

Add your favorite syrup and enjoy!
