Christmas Tradition #3

December 13, 2010

Eggnog.

When you think of the ingredients it’s kind of, a heart attack waiting to happen: cream, sugar, beaten raw eggs. Well I can’t resist. I typically do a little calorie counting in November to make room on my waistline for some holiday indulgence that includes a generous portion of eggnog.
I’m not a huge fan of the classic rum and eggnog, I prefer scotch. I love to really dress up my chai tea with some frothy warm nog and have you ever tried it on your porridge? Granted you have to be a weirdo like me and actually like porridge but it’s really, really good. Oh, and French Toast made with eggnog in the batter – delicious!  How about pudding? Instant vanilla pudding with half milk and half eggnog – mmmmmmm.
My favourite brand is the Safeway Select Gourmet Eggnog but I confess I haven’t sampled every brand available.
How about you?
How do you like your Nog?

    Wow you have given me some great ideas! We are real eggnog lovers in my family but we just normally have it in a glass with nutmeg on top. Other than occasionally putting it in coffee, I never thought to try cooking with it.

    By the way, I eat porridge every morning for breakfast so you are not the only weirdo 🙂
