Eggnog Here, Eggnog There, Eggnog Everywhere
Wednesday, November 13, 2013
Autumn brings in two things of my favorite foods - pumpkins and eggnog. I had my pumpkin overload back in September/October and now that Thanksgiving is creeping up, eggnog is starting to make an appearance in grocery stores everywhere. This past weekend, I went to Wegman's and was happy to find that they are stocked full of the seasonal treat. I picked up a liter on Saturday and went to get a half gallon on Sunday, lol. With all of the eggnog in my refrigerator, I've been thinking of different ways to enjoy and have narrowed it down to 3.
Eggnog Cheesecake: I made Eggnog cheesecake this weekend and it is quite delicious. I need to tweak some more ingredients and the cooking time, but the recipe is pretty solid regardless
2 packs of Cream cheese
1/2 cup of Eggnog
1 tablespoon of nutmeg
1/2 cup sugar
Graham cracker crust
Directions: Mix ingredients together in food mixer and pour into graham cracker crust. Place in oven for 45 minutes at 325 degrees. Remove and let cool, then place in refrigerator for at least 6 hours.
Eggnog Latte: I got an eggnog latte at Wegman's and it was delicious. I knew I had to make it a staple in my holiday diet. Any latte recipe will do, just replace milk with eggnog.
Eggnog Pancakes: I've had eggnog pancakes only once and they were at I.H.O.P. While they were very tasty, I know that I can't constantly eat I.H.O.P pancakes all the time (there isn't one near me nor are they healthy), so I will try to make eggnog pancakes. I've been looking at a few recipes and again, it will be the same for a latte, just replace milk with eggnog.
