When you think of “December 24th,” what comes to mind? For some, they immediately think of presents. Others, last minute shopping. But for us here at Food Republic, we can only think of one thing: Egg Nog!
It should come as no surprise that the day before Christmas is National Egg Nog Day. That’s right, there’s an actual full-fledged holiday dedicated to this rich & creamy yuletide concoction. Traditionally made with milk, sugar, raw eggs and spices, no nog worth its salt would be complete without a dash of rum, brandy, whiskey – or all three! For once, however, we’re actually recommending that you skip the spike and serve up this delicious drink virgin-style – for breakfast!
Why not start your day off right with one of these awesome eggnog ideas? Also ideal for when you have holiday houseguests over, too!
- Cereal time? Skip the milk and sub in some nog.
- Add it to your coffee or hot cocoa for extra decadence.
- Use instead of milk when mixing up morning waffles!
- Serve it piping hot, with a dash of nutmeg in your favorite mug.
For any of the great ideas seen here, you’ll need some egg nog to use as a substitute for milk/cream. Don’t have an egg nog recipe of your own? No problem--we’ve got you covered with our Essential Eggnog Recipe!
