It's that time of year when I can make one of my favorite breakfast creations. French Toast soaked in Egg Nog with a dash of vanilla, topped with powdered sugar.

Last night when I was in the store getting the ingredients, I went to the syrup section and noticed they had some fancy tiny bottles of pure maple syrup for like $32 a bottle.

My question is, is $32/bottle syrup worth the price?

Not if you are used to the artificial stuff.

No, not unless you are the ones selling the little bottles.

Around here, I can get a fairly large bottle of the pure Vermont stuff for less than half that.

Around here you can get a 8.5 oz bottle of pure Maple Syrup from the US or Canada for around 9.

Yes, it is worth it, tastes much better and is much better for you than artificially favored high fructose corn syrup.

If you do not drink gallons of it a month...it is very worth it to enjoy the good life.

Not to mention supporting these small pure maple syrup companies.

Hmm.  French toast with liquid french toast?  Hehe!

French toast is eggs, milk, with maybe a little cinnamon, possibly nutmeg.
Egg Nog, is milk, with eggs, maybe a little cinnamon, possibly nutmeg.

Sounds good to me!

Oh, wait, you mean the bread is originally soaked in Egg Nog? 
I didn't get that part.  I thought it was French Toast with Egg Nog as the syrup.

I thought he made the french toast by soaking bread in egg nog, not that he was adding egg nog to already made french toast.

Yeah, just barely figured that out.

Gosh, that really sounds like a good idea.  I'm going to have to try it.

OP I think you should try a nog other than egg. Everyone uses egg nog. Branch out into new territory.

Maybe, Spam Nog?

Hotdog Nog?  Love the name, anyway.

Whiskey Nog?  No, that's already a standard.

Soy Nog?  Possibly.

I soak the bread in the egg nog. Though, trial and error has taught me that I need to add more eggs to the batter in order to make it work.

And is the egg nog spiked?

The worst part of my Hurricane Sandy experience was throwing out most of the first half gallon of egg nog of this winter.

$32 for a tiny bottle? Define tiny?
Is there gold dust piss in it?

I get a quart of pure Grade A medium amber, for about $30-ish.

no. it's totally gross.

just get a bottle of log cabin or mrs. butterworth's and resume your happy life.

i think pure maple syrup is perfectly wretched. i'll take the fake stuff 110 times out of 100.

I like taking canned pumpkin, whipping it up good with some almond milk and pumpkin pie spice, then soaking thick bread in it and cooking that.

If you get the pumpkin coated into the bread right, and the pan temperature good, it's pretty much the most awesome thing in the whole world.

I'm really with you here.  I'm not fond of pure maple syrup.
I certainly do love Boysenberry syrup, though.  And, I make great homemade grenadine out of pomegranates.  No comparison to shitty Rose's or other store bought grenadines.

I buy maple syrup from a guy in northern Michigan who makes it every year.  It costs me $25/half gallon.  To make maple syrup takes a lot of work.

Ever since I started using pure maple syrup I can't stand the fake stuff!

I'm going to recommend you try some Grade B sometime. 

It's better, darker, more strongly flavored, and the people who make the stuff know this.  Because the "Grade B" label doesn't fit with most ideas of being better, it's not a common item.  There are a couple vendors at my local Farmers' Market who sometimes bring some "B" in.  I look for it.

Def go with Grade B-for the reasons he said.
