6 Creative Uses for Leftover Eggnog

The presents have been opened, the feasts have been feasted, and all you’re left with is. . . eggnog.

Let’s face it, you’re not really in the mood to drink it as-is anymore.  Here’s 6 ideas to use up that last carton.

Enjoy it for Breakfast

Fabulous French Toast

Make the easiest french toast of your life!  Dip sliced bread in eggnog mixed with eggs, cinnamon, and nutmeg.  Fry both sides until golden brown and then serve.

Perfect Pancakes

Add to your favourite pancake mix in place of the liquid.  Or, try this from-scratch recipe from Amy of Cooking With a Full Plate.  There’s whole grains for health and sprinkles for fun.
