Recipe with egg nog as an ingredient?

Help! I thought I purchased buttermilk at the store yesterday but when I got home I realized that I picked up egg nog instead. I do not like store bought egg nog at all. Any ideas on a recipe that would use up the egg nog?

I was thinking about making french toast and using the egg nog in place of the milk.

Hopefully someone will have some more ideas.

  1. If nothing else, same idea, different take:
    Gread pudding.
    At the heart of it, bread pudding is similar to a baked large scale french toast.

    1. It's just eggs, cream/milk, sugar and (maybe) nutmeg for the most part so anything that would use those ingredients would work--bread pudding, tiramisu, trifle. I'll bet you can even find cakes and cookies with eggnog as a base.

      Yep, here you go:

      1. I use egg nog instead of evaporated milk when I make pumpkin pie.

          Eggnog Custard pie that you sport up with a little hard brown likker and nutmeg. Everything tastes better with hard brown likker. But don't put bacon in this.

        2. We always put it in coffee when I was at home. Bread pudding and french toast are both good ideas. You could use it in any quick bread -- I think it'd be nice in pumpkin bread for sure. Or in pancakes or waffles. How about in place of milk in spice cake or carrot cake? Or -- crazy idea -- egg nog panna cotta?

          1. Cheesecake is delicious with egg nog in it. I think I just added a cup or so to my regular batter.
