Holiday Recipes with EggnogThe Hood Answer Mom, Elizabeth M. Ward, M.S., R.D.
Of all the holiday flavors, eggnog is my favorite. And, of all the eggnog in the world, Hood Eggnog is my number one. On shelves for just a few month each year, I take full advantage of Hood Eggnog’s availability by pouring myself a glass often, and using it in my favorite recipes.
Glazed Eggnog Donuts are the latest entry in Hood’s growing collection of eggnog recipes you’ll want to make during the holidays. The recipe features traditional Hood Golden Eggnog, but swap in Hood Vanilla Eggnog, Hood Pumpkin Eggnog or Hood Light Eggnog for a change of pace. Ground cinnamon and nutmeg paired with pure vanilla extract amplify the eggnog flavor, while the donuts’ glaze is perfectly sweet. Glazed Eggnog Donuts take all of about 20 minutes to make, and they’re baked, not fried. Oh, and have I mentioned that everyone will love them?
There are so many ways to use Hood Eggnog in holiday cooking that it’s hard to choose which recipes to make! Here are just a few suggestions for you and your family this season.
Golden Eggnog Cake is a perennial favorite for its great taste and preparation ease. I know someone who has made this cake every holiday season for more than a decade! See for yourself why it’s so simple to make, and so popular.
My family requests Eggnog Custard Pie during the holidays, and I’m more than happy to oblige. A homemade graham cracker crust serves as the basis for the pie, but using a packaged version to save time is just as good. Hood Vanilla Eggnog is the star of the custard filling, and whipped Hood Heavy Cream tops it off.
Hood Pumpkin Eggnog and Hood Sour Cream team up to make moist, flavorful Pumpkin Spice Pancakes that are infused with eggnog flavor. Chopped pecans add another flavor dimension to this breakfast that’s so tasty is almost needs no maple syrup!
Eggnog Smoothie Bowl is like a match made in heaven for those who can’t get enough smoothie bowls and eggnog. Even better than its taste is how it provides more than a serving of fruit plus considerable amounts of bone-building protein and calcium, too. Give this festive smoothie bowl a try!
Eggnog Bread Pudding is a twist on traditional bread pudding that uses eggnog instead of milk and raisin bread in place of plain. It’s delicious on its own, and even better with salted caramel topping. It’s the perfect way to end a holiday meal.
