30+ BEST Eggnog Recipes - Homemade Eggnog and 18 Ways to Use It! (1)

I’ve found that eggnog is something you either love or hate. But with it’s creamy, velvety texture and sweet, nutmeg flavor, I just can’t get enough of it!

Eggnog is a great way to celebrate the holiday season. Made with raw eggs, milk, cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla extract, sugar and heavy cream, it’s the perfect way to cheers any holiday celebration. You can even add some dark rum to your egg nog to make it a real party.

Whether you get a carton of eggnog from the local grocery store or try one of the many homemade eggnog recipes, adding that flavor to holiday recipes is my favorite way to spread holiday cheer.

If you’ve never tried making your own, be sure to check out my homemade recipe (the first on this list!) And if you have any extra eggnog left after enjoying a glass or two, use it to make these eggnog recipes!

There are breakfast recipes like muffins, waffles and french toast. There are plenty of desserts like cookies and eggnog cake, a bundt cake with an eggnog glaze and eggnog pancakes. And even a co*cktail or two for the eggnog fans this Christmas season!

So grab some store-bought eggnog or make your own and find your favorite recipe made with traditional eggnog!
