My older son loves eggnog so much that he starts asking for it before Halloween. I start keeping an eye on the Brookshire’s dairy case around that time, too, because it usually appears right after.
Southern Comfort® Egg Nog is his favorite (Note to shoppers: It comes without the southern comfort). It’s thick, rich and creamy, and he enjoys it with a dash of Vietnamese cinnamon on top.
Southern Comfort® Traditional Egg Nog is ultra-pasteurized, Grade A and only available during the holiday season.
Today, we had a brainstorm while making breakfast. We replaced most of the milk in our waffle batter with Southern Comfort® Egg Nog. My son LOVED it. You need to keep some of the milk to make the batter the right consistency, but he said these were delicious.
Southern Comfort® Egg Nog Waffles
2 cups baking mix
2 Tbs vegetable oil
1 cup Southern Comfort® Egg Nog
1/3 cup milk
1/4 tsp Vietnamese cinnamon
Combine baking mix, oil, egg, eggnog, milk and cinnamon in large bowl. Whisk batter to combine. It will be slightly thicker than traditional waffle batter. Spray waffle iron with nonstick cooking spray, and heat according to your iron’s directions. Cook waffles until golden-brown.
