4 Great Ways to Start Your Day with Homestead Creamery Custard & Eggnog

Don’t wait until the evening to enjoy our Eggnog & Custard… Start Your Day with Homestead Creamery!

Here are a few delicious ideas on how to use our Classic Eggnog & Old Fashioned Custard to turn an ordinary breakfast into a magical holiday treat for your friends and family!


Homestead Creamery Eggnog French Toast

Sliced bread of your choice
1 cup of Homestead Creamery Eggnog
2 eggs
1/2 tsp. of cinnamon
1 tsp. of sugar

Mix all the ingredients together then soak the bread ensuring both sides are well covered.  Cook in a hot skillet with butter or shortening turning once until golden brown.  


Custard Pancakes

Much like French toast, making custard pancakes is quite simple and will be a crowd favorite! All you have to do is substitute the milk for custard. Using your favorite pancake mix, you can whip these up fast for the whole family:

Whisk Ingredients: 2 Cups of Pancake Mix, 2 Tbsp. of sugar, 1/4 tsp. of nutmeg, 1 cup of Homestead Creamery Custard, and 2 eggs.

Pour into a skillet or griddle over medium-high heat and cook both sides until golden brown. It works great with eggnog, too! Top them with sliced bananas or strawberries and whipped cream if you’re feeling fancy.

Eggnog Muffins

Muffins are great for people who like to “grab-n-go” during breakfast! Eggnog muffins are even better! Carla of Roanoke, VA shared her favorite recipe by Sheila Roberts.

Muffin Mix: 1 3/4 cups of all-purpose flour, 4 tsp. of baking powder, 1/2 tsp. of salt, 1/4 cup of sugar, 1/4 cup of shortening, 1 egg, 1 cup of Homestead Creamery eggnog, 1/4 cups of finely chopped candied cherries, 1/4 cup of walnuts or pecans finely chopped.

Cream together the sugar, shortening, and egg thoroughly. Then, sift in the dry ingredients while slowly mixing in eggnog. You can always add a little extra eggnog if your mix is looking too dry. Once the mix is in the muffin pan, bake for 20 minutes at 350 degrees F.


Really, both of these can be used as a more flavorful coffee creamer! Add as much or as little as you like. (Bonus Tip: Eggnog Ice Cream works really well too!)

And there you have it folks! The best way to start your day is with a little bit of love, and a lot of Homestead Creamery. If you’re more of a sweet-tooth, stay tuned on some great ways to end your day with Homestead Creamery based desserts!
