For those looking for something special and festive to whip up for Christmas breakfast this year, these decadent eggnog waffles creatively repurpose the traditional creamy drink into a sweet edible that is ideal for the winter season. The eggnog adds delicious cinnamon spice flavors to the batter making it an extra sugary treat.

Eggnog is a staple punch that is often exclusively reserved for the winter months and the Christmas season. Thanks to the milky punch's sweet flavor profile, it pairs well with sweet dishes including these homemade waffles. The drink is incorporated into the batter along with milk, sugar, yeast, vanilla bean, cloves and nutmeg. To give the dish an even more customary aroma, bourbon or dark rum can be added to the batter to increase the depth of flavor.
