Halloween has come and gone so now it’s officially time to kick it into high gear for the holiday season.  I plugged in my cinnamon and cranberry wax plug-ins all around the house and this past weekend I took inventory of my harvest decor so that I can know what I need to purchase on sale this year for next year.  When everyone is running to the grocery store for pumpkin spiced flavors, I am running to the Walmart refrigerator aisle for egg nog.  Cameron and I both love egg nog.  I drink it straight with a  little cinnamon on top and he enjoys it in his coffee.  In celebration of seeing one of our favorite holiday drinks back on the shelves I wanted to come up with a recipe that would be an ode to my beloved egg nog.  My favorite kind of food is breakfast/brunch so naturally I  went in that direction with my Egg Nog Pancakes and Egg Nog Syrup recipes.

Holiday Recipe: Egg Nog Pancakes + Egg Nog Syrup Sideline SocialiteI started gathering my ingredients by starting at the top!  We have a tradition of topping our pancakes with whipped cream  whether it be a dollop or in the form or a smiley face, so I headed to the refrigerator aisle in Walmart and snagged a can of original Reddi-wip® which was also conveniently located right next to the star of my recipe, the egg nog.

Holiday Recipe: Egg Nog Pancakes + Egg Nog Syrup Sideline SocialiteFirst I started by making my batter.  Combine the dry ingredients first then incorporate the wet ingredients.  As I was mixing the smell of the nutmeg immediately got me in the mood for the holidays so naturally I had to turn on my iPod to my Pentatonix Christmas album while I cooked.

I basically took our family pancake recipe and substituted milk for egg nog and wouldn’t you know it came out better than I imagined it would!

Holiday Recipe: Egg Nog Pancakes + Egg Nog Syrup Sideline SocialiteOnce the dry and wet ingredients were  combined, I got to work on making my egg nog syrup.  There was a lot of pressure in making sure I knocked this syrup to of the park because Cameron went on and on about how great his mother’s home made syrup was, blah, blah, blah.

Holiday Recipe: Egg Nog Pancakes + Egg Nog Syrup Sideline SocialiteIf egg nog is the star of this syrup then butter is the definite co-star.  You don’t even need to put butter on the pancakes if you top them off with this syrup!

Holiday Recipe: Egg Nog Pancakes + Egg Nog Syrup Sideline SocialiteOnce the syrup was made, I bottled it so that it would stay nice and warm as I started making the pancakes. The syrup will be this golden color which again, had Cameron skeptical that it wouldn’t be as good as his mom’s, blah, blah, blah.

Holiday Recipe: Egg Nog Pancakes + Egg Nog Syrup Sideline SocialiteMy favorite part of the pancake is the crispy edge. My dad does it the best, but as you can see, mine aren’t so bad either!

Holiday Recipe: Egg Nog Pancakes + Egg Nog Syrup Sideline SocialiteWhat really impressed me about these recipes is the fact that, although they both had egg nog, the egg nog was not overwhelming.  When you bite into these delicious pancakes, with the help of the nutmeg you immediately feel as though you are taking  bite into the holidays.  The pancakes are just the right amount of sweet.

After placing my dollop of Reddi-Wip and taking my first bite my hands down favorite part of this meal was the syrup.  You can’t beat the buttery goodness.  The consistency was just right.  Again, though egg nog was a big component of recipe, it wasn’t overwhelming.

Don’t be afraid to experiment or substitute ingredients you would normally use for some of your holiday favorites. If you are an egg nog lover like our family, then these recipes are a must to try and I am confident that they will become part of your family tradition for the holidays.

      I can’t say that I have tried it but I don’t see why not. The only concern would be the consistency maybe being a little too thick?

    Thank you fellow Egg Nog lover! Not sure my cardiologist likes this, but Egg Nog season is too short to pass this up.

    PS If you like oatmeal for breakfast, try using egg nog…drink or ice cream…too cool and flavor it!
