Egg Nog Sweets

About this time of year, I buy more coconut milk eggnog than I can actually drink… purely because I can only buy it once a year.  So, looking for ways to use it, I made Baked Egg Nog Sweet Potatoes.  I love sweet potatoes, and the eggnog was a great seasonal way to enjoy them!

Baked Egg Nog Sweet Potatoes

Pieces:

  1. 2 sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into very small pieces.  I cut them into disks, and then each disk into fourths.
  2. three quarters cup coconut milk egg nog
  3. three quarters cup brown sugar
  4. 1 tbsp. cinnamon
  5. 1 tsp. vanilla
  6. 2 tbsp. vegan butter

Process:

  1. Microwave the sweet potatoes pieces on high for 4 minutes to tenderize them.
  2. In a baking pan, combine the sweet potatoes, egg nog, sugar, cinnamon, and butter.
  3. Bake, uncovered, at 375 degrees for 45-60 minutes.
  4. Stir together and serve hot.

(If you want more of a casserole or souffle dish, add 2 tbsp. gluten free flour and 1 beaten egg)

Tis the Season for Egg Nog

Egg Nog is one of those seasonal food items that I really miss being allergic to dairy.  But then I found this!

What a relief!  Bring on the egg nog martinis and egg nog in my morning coffee.  Better yet… bring on the egg nog pancakes!

  2. Mix well.
  3. Over a coated saute pan, spoon large clumps of batter and cook on medium heat.  Leave a little space in between each pancake.
