But, another Sunday watching the Food Network led to some delicious insight I wanted to share. A few fresh takes on our favorite holiday dishes…guaranteed to be incredible!

Here are some revamped recipes I’ll be trying this year:

eggnog blackout

yes pleaseTo my Husband and I’s surprise, we found eggnog at the grocery store in October! Regular, light, vanilla cinnamon, and pumpkin spice baby! Whatever your style, there’s an eggnog for you.

Or you can make it homemade:

Eggnog Recipe:

  • 4 egg yolks
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 pint whole milk
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 3 ounces bourbon
  • 1 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
  • 4 egg whites

In a mixer, beat the egg yolks (until they lighten in color). Then, slowly add the sugar (beat until completely dissolved). Add the milk, cream, bourbon and nutmeg. Combine.

Beat egg whites with mixer into soft peaks. With the mixer still running gradually add an extra pinch of sugar and beat until stiff peaks form.

Carefully whisk egg whites into the mixture. Chill, serve with cinnamon sticks, enjoy.

Keep the Christmas spirit alive with these delicious uses of eggnog:

  • eggnog chai or “chai-gg”
  • use as milk in french toast
