There are certain things that remind me of Christmastime, and one of those things is eggnog. I have memories as a child, enjoying a small mug of the rich, decadent drink with my mom. She would spike hers, of course. Over the years, I kept with that tradition, even though my husband has never been a huge fan. (But seriously, what’s not to love?) Now that we have children, I am able to pass down this tradition to them.
Our kids love waffles! Yours probably do too? This simple recipe uses eggnog in place of buttermilk. You can taste the sweet, creamy flavor in the waffles, and added spices like cinnamon and nutmeg. The little ones eat it up, and my husband too! I love to enjoy these waffles with a little butter, light syrup, a sprinkle of cinnamon on top, and yes, a cold glass of rum-spiced eggnog.
