Christmas is upon us and everyone is rushing around buying last-minute gifts (including me!), but have you thought about Christmas breakfast? You need these Egg Nog Waffles! I think these waffles sound like the perfect Christmas morning breakfast. It sounds even better when you can make the batter in less than 10 minutes with only a few ingredients, most of which you probably have on hand. These waffles are full of egg nog, just for you egg nog lovers. If you have never even tried egg nog, then this is the perfect introduction! These waffles are made with AE Egg Nog directly in the batter as well as an egg nog glaze if you’re feeling in the mood. Basically, this is one of those recipes that can double as breakfast or dessert!
Serve the waffles with these fluffy cottage eggs, fruit salsa yogurt parfaits and crispy bacon and your guests (or family) will be impressed. I always have AE cottage cheese, sour cream and milks on hand because they are perfect by themselves or can be used in many different classic recipes.
The key ingredient in these waffles is AE Classic Egg Nog. Some describe this holiday drink as “liquid gold,” and they buy it in bulk to freeze when the shelves are no longer stocked. This delicious egg nog is made from a 50+ Anderson Erickson recipe including fresh cream, real vanilla and nutmeg. The holidays go by so quickly, so next time you see AE Egg Nog in the stores, be sure to buy a few extra for your freezer!
The AE Egg Nog glaze for these waffles make them taste like a dessert. A sprinkle of powdered sugar or a drizzle of maple syrup would still taste amazing if you are looking for something a little less decadent.
