Egg Nog Waffles or Pancakes

So, this morning my husband asked me if I could make him Egg Nog waffles. I told him I never had, but that I'm sure Google could help me out with that! So off I went to search, I picked the first recipe that came up because a) it sounded easy and b) it had pretty good reviews. After making the first waffled and snitching off a corner of it I thought it wasn't very Egg Noggy, and duh, if I'm going to eat a waffle with Egg Nog in in it, I want to taste the Egg Nog! Since I was making regular pancakes for my kids (aka pannycakins) I decided to add a little bit more Nog to thin my batter and throw some on the griddle, the results were Mmmm-mmmm GOOD! We decided that was a better way to go! Add a little butter and powdered sugar and you're in for a treat!

 (I found this recipe here and changed it a tad!)
2 cups flour
2 cups eggnog
2 large eggs - beaten
1 Tablespoons vegetable oil
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt 
(Optional: You can add a little bit of nutmeg and cinnamon to enhance the flavor!)
**In a large bowl, mix the flour with the baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
In a separate bowl, mix together eggnog, eggs and oil until well mixed.
Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients. Mix until smooth. 
Cook waffles in well-greased preheated waffle iron according to manufactures instructions or add a little bit more Egg Nog to thin the batter and turn them into pancakes!

Serve with butter and powdered sugar.

You should try Egg Nog French Toast. You just need one loaf of Texas style bread, 1 qt of egg nog, nut meg, butter and syrup. Dip the bread in the egg nog. Place on a med/low heated griddle (can't turn the heat up or the sugars burn). Sprinkle with nut meg. Serve with warm syrup and butter.
