I bought a half gallon of eggnog for a holiday party. No one wanted any! I love eggnog, but a half gallon is a lot of eggnog, not to mention a lot of calories. I wanted to find a way to use some of it up and when I saw a waffle recipe that called for eggnog in the local paper I knew I had to try it. I modified it a little, to add pumpkin, of course. They came out great. I will be making several batches until that eggnog is used up, I am afraid! I hope you can whip up a batch if you have leftover eggnog this year, too.

Eggnog Waffles

1-1/2 cups eggnog
1 egg
3 tablespoons packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup pumpkin puree
2-1/2 cups white flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

Preheat waffle iron and spray baking surface with oil if needed.

In medium bowl, mix together eggnog, egg, brown sugar, pumpkin and vanilla. In a separate bowl, mix flour, baking powder, salt and spices. Add to the batter and stir just enough to combine.

Cook waffles according to your waffle iron directions. Makes about 8 medium-sized waffles. Enjoy!
