Strange can be simple.
Simple is strange in my kitchen!
This recipe consists of simply two things: bread and eggnog. It’s what we had for
breakfast brunch lunch linner (we like to sleep) on Christmas morning. And a giant side of champagne because all the rum Mom dumps in her eggnog would have cooked out.
We did get a little complex with the homemade eggnog and using chocolate chip brioche. I neglected a picture, but I also made fresh whipped cream with coconut rum to top. You don’t have to get that fancy… but it didn’t suck.
Also served was scrambled eggs with spinach and onion for protein and greens. And bacon. Because bacon.
Mom likes to set a fancy table. This one had a gorgeous centerpiece, a charcuterie, ambrosia, and a magnum bottle of sparkling from Schramsberg.
It was so good we didn’t worry about opening presents until almost 2!
It’s a little past the holidays, but why not keep celebrating and try this out? It’s strange… but good! Besides, the eggnog is on sale at Whole Foods!
