1. Eggnog donuts

Eggnog lovers will go “glazy” for this donut recipe. Start by making the dough from eggnog and dry yeast. Combine that mixture with eggs and unsalted butter. Next, mix in all-purpose flour and gently knead. Cover the dough, let it rise for one hour, and mold it into donut shapes. Cover the donuts and let them rise for one hour before frying them for 30 to 40 seconds on each side or until golden brown. 

2. Eggnog crème brûlée

This recipe features a fancy take on eggnog. The crème brûlée involves a custard made from a mix of heavy cream, vanilla extract, nutmeg, allspice and cinnamon combined with whisked egg yolks and sugar. Pour the custard into ramekin dishes, and place in a baking dish with water. After baking for 45 minutes at 325 degrees Fahrenheit, refrigerate the custard for four hours. Finally, cover the custard’s surface with sugar before torching it until caramelized.

3. Eggnog oatmeal

Start the day on a good note with this recipe. First, add oats, eggnog, dried fruit, vanilla extract and salt to a pot. Next, bring the mix to a boil. Then let it simmer on low. Finish off with a sprinkling of cinnamon before serving.
