We’re all a bit overstuffed from the holidays, and are trying our hardest to use up leftovers. What do you do with leftover eggnog? Here are a few of my favorite things to do with the tasty treat.
Pancakes & French Toast: Substitute eggnog for the milk in your favorite pancake mix. Or dip your bread in a mixture of eggnog and eggs for French toast. It adds a sweet nutmeg-y flavor to your breakfast. You can reduce the amount of sugar to balance out the sweetness.
Eggnog Latte – Eggnog Coffee Recipe
Ingredients: 2 shots espresso OR 1/2 cup of strong coffee 2/3 cup eggnog 1/3 cup milk sugar *optional whipped cream and nutmeg
Variation: If you want to make this as an evening cocktail, add a shot of rum.
Directions: Pour espresso/concentrated coffee into a mug. Warm your eggnog and milk mixture in the microwave. (Approximately 2 minutes) Add steamed eggnog/milk mixture to the coffee. If you prefer your eggnog latte sweeter, add a little sugar. Top off with whipped cream and a pinch of nutmeg. Enjoy!
