Who doesn’t love cooking or baking with vanilla? This month, we’re partnering with Ashley Rodriguez of Not Without Salt to share tips, insights and recipes featuring vanilla.
Would you believe that vanilla bean is not a classic ingredient in Eggnog? What better ingredient could there be to go along with a rich dairy concoction? Slip in some vanilla bean to add fragrant, sweet and floral warmth that kicks up this holiday staple.
If you don’t have a vanilla bean on hand, good quality vanilla extract will do nicely in a pinch. You’ll miss out on those fun little flecks floating in your nog, but you’ll still get a lovely boost of vanilla flavor. And the best part about this recipe? Should you have leftovers (or, if you want leftovers, double the batch) you can easily churn the base into an Eggnog ice cream or serve it as a sauce alongside bread pudding.
Eggnog can easily be made up to 3 days before your holiday festivities. Cheers!
