I fondly remember my grandmother making homemade eggnog.  She used raw eggs, milk, cream and freshly grated nutmeg. I was ga ga for the stuff.  Because I’d had the real deal as a kid, anytime I purchased a carton of the store bought stuff I was sorely disappointed. I imagine if I had grown up drinking the carton kind I would have loved that too – but to me it wasn’t grandma’s eggnog.  I was delighted to discover that Strafford’s Eggnog tastes practically identical to Grandma Marion’s!

Leftover Eggnog Ideas
So after you have a rich and delicious cup (straight-up or spiked) what do you do with the rest?
  • Stir some into your coffee instead of milk or cream.
  • Use it to make an exceptional pot of oatmeal.
  • Substitute eggnog for milk in your pancake batter.
  • Make an eggnog smoothie - with frozen bananas or room temp. bananas and ice.
  • For breakfast make some eggnog french toast.
  • Eggnog waffles.
  • Bake some cranberry eggnog muffins.
  • Use it instead of milk on your cereal for a decadent breakfast bowl (you could thin it out with a splash of milk).
  • Make eggnog rice pudding.
