Use eggnog instead of milk in your favorite cereal for a sensational holiday breakfast that’s quick and easy.
Want a quick and easy way to start your day off with a bite of holiday flavor? Just use eggnog instead of milk in your favorite hot or cold cereal.
And if simple’s all you’re after, great, you’re done. But if you want more, you’ll see a few sample added ingredients in this step-by-step picture book recipe (fresh berries, dried cranberries, yogurt and freshly made whipped cream) you can use for added variety. As always, your taste and imagination are your only limits.
Preparation Time: 2-7 minutes, depending on choice of ingredients and whether you’re having the cereal hot or cold
Favorite Cold Cereal (I’m using a whole grain muesli cereal)
Eggnog (I’m using a light vanilla eggnog—great stuff!)
Optional Toppings (I’m using fresh blackberries and blueberries, plain yogurt, whipped cream and dried cranberries)
Microwave Oven Safe Bowl (only if you’re warming the cereal)
Add a good splash of eggnog.
After warming, carefully remove the bowl from the microwave oven, and either have the warm cereal with eggnog as is or with your choice or a combination of added ingredients as shown in step 3.
3. Here are some sample optional ingredients you can add to hot or cold cereal with eggnog:
Yogurt (I’m using plain yogurt but any yogurt will work)
Fresh berries—after giving them a quick rinse with cold tap water (I’m using fresh blackberries and blueberries, but any berries will work)
Whipped cream (I’m using freshly made whipped cream, but a good squirt of your favorite canned whipped cream will work fine)
Dried fruit (I’m using dried cranberries but any dried fruit will work)
