Yep, jumped right past Thanksgiving into Christmas food this weekend and made eggnog French toast topped with whole cranberry sauce.

    Sounds like you have all the eggnog bases covered. I will vouch for eggnog french toast (or bread pudding) made with challah — a deliciously ecumenical experience.

      If you have a espresso machine with a steaming wand, make egg nog lattes. Very decadent and festive.

        Will eggnog froth? I thought it was the less fat, the more froth, which is why skim milk froths better than whole. . .

          It will froth a bit, not a lot. Hence “latte” instead of “capuccino”. 🙂 But the steamed egg nog is still wonderful.

        I think you’re talking about using pre-made eggnog? I tried to make french toast with some once and it was terrible, even though it was the best I could find (Southern Comfort brand). It’d probably work out better with homemade but I never have any left (my cats like it too, even with the bourbon and brandy in it!)

          Yeah, a nothing special brand from Raleys. Isn’t Southern Comfort brand bottled and not refrigerated? I don’t think that type would work for some reason. I wouldn’t use the bottled Mexican rompope for French toast, for example.

          Well, the cat DOES like rum raisin ice creaam (sans raisins). She’s having some health issues so a little booze in the eggnog might cheer her up. Just joking … before anyone is concerned about the danger of alcohol on kitties. While I did have a cat that liked champagne, this one’s a milk-totler.

            No, Southern Comfort is refrigerated eggnog, don’t know the connection but they have clearly printed on the carton that there is no alchohol in it. Sad, so I have to add a bunch of Jack to it. My cat also likes martinis, I think actually he likes the olives but he licks the vodka to get at them. Hasn’t harmed him so far (this is a rare occurance anyway, he’s mostly really into catnip). (Our friends cockatoo used to love pina coladas, now that I think of it)

          I make a mean eggnog gelato, goes great with my peppermint stick gelato

            Same here with eggnog ice cream – to die for! (Made a chocolate version, too). But that’s only going to be interesting to the people (like me) who can eat ice cream any time of year.

              Please share your recipe! It’s about 85 degrees here in LA and I could sure use some ice cream.

                oh goodness! I wing it so often when I make ice cream that I’m sure I don’t have an actual recipe. However, I’m on a mission to write down my recipes and I owe my husband some eggnog ice cream so I’ll whip it up in the next week or so and I promise I’ll post it!!

                • Pei Nov 7, 2021

                  Oh, don’t worry, I’d probably just take your recipe and wing it as well. But general guidelines would be helpful, especially what brand of egg nog you start with.

                    I do know that I started with homemade (cooked) eggnog and then made a custard base out of it. Actually, looking at my eggnog recipe (below) I think what I did was use whole milk for the first step of the eggnog, then the second two cups added were heavy cream and I added probably another cup of superfine sugar after it’s at the custard stage. Actually – I’m sure I halved the recipe below because four cups of liquid would overflow my ice cream maker. Is any of this making sense?

                    Let me know what you come up with!

                    Here’s the cooked eggnog recipe I use:
                    * 6 eggs
                    * 1/4 cup sugar
                    * 1/4 tsp salt
                    * 1 quart milk
                    * 1 tsp vanilla
                    * 1/4 tsp nutmeg
                    * 1/4 tsp cinnamon

                    Beat eggs, sugar and salt together in a saucepan. Stir in 2 cups of milk. On low heat, cook until mixture is thick and thinly coats a spoon. Make sure to stir constantly. Remove from heat and mix in the last of the milk and the vanilla.

                    Some times it’s worth it to strain the custard before combining with the cream. I dunno if you’ve had homemade eggnog but it’s a whole different animal – I love the way it tastes as ice cream.

            You can make a boozy, hair-of-the-dog maple syrup by warming syrup and liquor of your choice just before serving. Bourbon works especially well. Try one part booze to three parts syrup and go from there. You can also reduce the booze a little bit first for a thicker combination.
