While it's not as common in Australia as The United States and Canada, eggnog is a delicious addition to many Christmas menus, whether it's in its original drink-form or incorporated into cheesecakes, tarts and panna cotta. Traditionally, eggnog is an alcoholic milky punch made with milk, cream, sugar, whipped eggs and your favourite spirits (usually brandy or rum). Here, we've pulled together our favourite recipes for you to experience this traditionally festive beverage.
Take your favourite midweek dinner, bolognaise, and use it to fill a delicious flaky pastry pie. Serve with mushy peas and you have a complete meal for culinary comfort. Photography by David Hahn / Bauersyndication.com.au.
