Each holiday season I always get sucked in by the eggnog. It’s so good, but after a couple small glasses of it, I’m usually sick of it. I started adding some nog to my hot chocolate, which was really tasty. But there is only so much hot chocolate that one person can consume. I was trying to think of other ways to use up my eggnog when it hit me: eggnog waffles! I felt like the waffles would be a good choice as you use a lot of milk in them, plus the eggnog flavor would have a chance of coming through.
I went with my favorite waffle recipe and subbed the eggnog for the milk. I ended up subbing for the entire 2 cups because I wasn’t sure if the eggnog flavor would come through. Not a worry–these waffles practically screamed eggnog, which was a good thing! I think next time I would maybe sub in a little milk to make the final product less dense, but overall, I was very pleased with the flavor. Maybe you have some eggnog lurking in your refrigerator still…try making something else out of it instead of pouring it down the drain!
