Wintertime always brings eggnog back to the stores. You find people who love it or hate it but no matter what side of the fence you are on when it comes to drinking eggnog it is still great in many recipes during the holiday time! My new favorite eggnog recipe is this easy eggnog oatmeal. I like using the homemade eggnog recipe instead of buying store-bought this way I make what I need and there is no waste.
Easy Eggnog Oatmeal + Homemade Eggnog Recipe
Is Homemade eggnog safe?
Yes as long as it's properly stored. I would make sure to use it within 24 hours of making it just to be safe. Since it's so easy to make just make small batches as needed. There is a simple recipe at the bottom of the post for homemade eggnog.
How long does homemade eggnog last?
About 2-3 days but I use up a homemade one within 24 hours. I make it in small batches and make more as needed just to be safe.
Is eggnog good in coffee?
Many people to like to have their eggnog in their coffee. One recipe for that I like is adding a bit of nutmeg to the coffee grounds before brewing the coffee and the brew as normal. Add the eggnog in once the coffee is brewed and enjoy.
Ingredients to Make Enggnog Oatmeal
Directions to make Eggnog Oatmeal
Start by preheating the oven to 350 degrees F.
Combine all the ingredients and mix well.
Pour them into a greased 8×8 baking dish.
Bake for 25-30 minutes and let cool.

I like to top mine off with a bit more ground cinnamon and nutmeg before serving.
- 2 cups rolled oats, not quick-cooking
- 1/3 cup brown sugar, packed
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1 3/4 cup eggnog
- 1 egg
- 2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Start by preheating the oven to 350 degrees F.
- Combine all the ingredients and mix well. Then pour them into a greased 8x8 baking dish.
- Bake for 25-30 minutes and let cool.
- Serve with extra milk if needed.
- Rolled Oats: Make sure to use regular rolled oats for this recipe, as quick-cooking oats may result in a different texture.
- Eggnog: Use your preferred store-bought or homemade eggnog. The flavor of the oatmeal will be influenced by the eggnog you choose, so select one with flavors you enjoy.
- Toppings: Consider topping the oatmeal with your favorite additions, such as a sprinkle of cinnamon, a drizzle of maple syrup, or a dollop of whipped cream, for added indulgence and flavor.
- Mixing the Ingredients: When combining the ingredients, make sure to mix them thoroughly until well incorporated. This ensures that the oats are evenly coated with the eggnog mixture, resulting in a consistent and flavorful oatmeal
- Cooling Time: After baking, allow the oatmeal to cool in the baking dish for a few minutes before serving. This will help it set and make it easier to handle when portioning out into servings
- Leftovers: If you have leftovers, you can store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Simply reheat individual portions in the microwave or on the stovetop with a splash of milk to restore the creamy consistency.
