Enjoy the holidays with Eggnog Muffins. Perfect with your morning coffee.
Holiday Breakfast Ideas — Week 2
What are the holidays without eggnog. Whether you like it or not, for many it is a holiday tradition. It’s a cup of good cheer around the fire with family and friends to celebrate the holiday season.
I wasn’t much into eggnog until about eight years ago when I had a glass of spiked eggnog on the rocks. It changed my life. Well, not really but it tasted mighty good. Slowly eggnog grew on me and I started liking it more.
Now I love it. I even included my homemade Eggnog recipe in my cookbook Holiday Thyme. It’s a fun treat to make at home and you can really customize it to your liking. And although I love my homemade version, I save that for a special occasion and still grab a carton of eggnog here and there throughout the holiday season to have on hand and to enjoy in various recipes like these Eggnog Muffins.
These Eggnog Muffins are great to enjoy with a cup of coffee throughout the holiday season. If you are hosting a holiday brunch or even for Christmas morning, these delicious muffins with a hint of eggnog, cinnamon and nutmeg are a great addition to any of your holiday festivities.
