7 Clever Uses for Eggnog

I’ve never really been a fan, but eggnog never fails to get people in the spirit of the holiday season…but eggnog isn’t just for drinking…check out all this other fun stuff you can do with this seasonal drink…

Use it in your batter when you make French toast or pancakes on Christmas morning.

Use it instead of cream in your coffee.

Here’s a cute blog that gives you recipe suggestions based on how much eggnog you have left over:

If your eggnog is non-alcoholic, you can run it through your ice cream maker and make eggnog ice cream pie!  Serve in a graham cracker crust with whipped cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon.  This will go great with your eggnog coffee.

Use eggnog instead of milk and whip up a batch of delicious eggnog cranberry muffins.  Yum!

If you only have a little left over, make a spice cake and add some powdered sugar to your leftover eggnog and you’ve got yourself a glaze for your cake.

Since eggnog is a dairy product, you can use it to add flavor to almost any baked good.  And a lot of extra eggnog is the perfect excuse to experiment in the kitchen…just make sure you’re sipping the non-alcoholic kind as you bake 😉
