Eggnog is always a holiday staple, but many find themselves with more in their refrigerator than they know what to do with. You may not even know how many other uses there are for eggnog besides just drinking it. With the main ingredients being sugar, eggs, milk and heavy cream, eggnog is a perfect substitute in baking and breakfast recipes. The richness of eggnog makes it a great ingredient to bake with all while making your recipe a bit more festive.
Here are a few ways to use up that extra eggnog:
No one can refuse a milkshake, even in the winter! Use a blender to combine ¼ cup of our PICS eggnog and 4 scoops of the ice cream of your choice (we suggest PICS vanilla: a classic). For an extra festive treat, top with whipped cream, holiday sprinkles and a cherry.
- Pancake and waffle batter
Instead of using milk in pancake or waffle batter, use eggnog. It will feel like Christmas morning every day!
This holiday icing is perfect to use on cinnamon buns, cupcakes, cookies or just about anything! You’ll just need ½ cup melted butter, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, 4 cups confectioners’ sugar, and 6 tablespoons eggnog. Combine the ingredients, while slowly mixing in the confectioners’ sugar. Incredible!
Whether you’re using rolled oats or instant oatmeal, you can swap out water or milk for our PICS eggnog. This makes a quick and easy holiday breakfast.
- Mashed sweet potatoes
Rather than adding sour cream to your mashed sweet potatoes, use eggnog! It’ll make it extra creamy and sweet.
The holiday season will be over before you know it, so be sure to try one (or a few, or all) of these methods, and head over to your local store to grab our PICS eggnog before it’s too late. Happy holidays from our family to yours!
