There are elements to the holiday season in which I consciously practice a great deal of restraint. Holiday music? Gotta' go easy on it. Mail-order desserts from Aunt Linda? Ditto. And eggnog usually falls in that category as well. While quite tasty, it can be a heavy finish to an evening meal. However, used sparingly, it can be a wonderful way to begin the day. There's no way I could sit down and actually drink a cup of eggnog first thing in the morning, but using it in baked goods gives your breakfast that warmly-spiced flavor without the commitment of ounces upon ounces of the decadent beverage. Here are a few recipes we're excited to try, from scones to oatmeal to waffles.
