7 Ways to Use Leftover EggNog
I started to post these tips after Christmas but I just realized there will be a lot of eggnog served at Christmas parties over the next week or two. Instead of saving these leftover eggnog tips until after Christmas, here are a couple more ways to use it now:
- Use eggnog in place of milk in your bread or rice pudding.
- Pour leftover eggnog on hot cereal in place of milk.
- Use eggnog in place of milk in your favorite pancake mix.
- Use eggnog in place of milk in a yellow cake for a really nice rich cake.
- Use eggnog in place of milk in muffins especially good in spice or that type of muffin.
- Use eggnog for French toast.
