Eggnog Waffle Recipe Tips:

  • Add Waffle Batter – When pouring waffle batter on waffle maker, keep in mind that it will expand. Make sure to not overfill.
  • Cooking Waffles – Cook waffles until they are golden brown. My waffle make will turn on ready light when they are finished cooking. Make sure to cook them a little longer the regular wafflers.
  • Prepare Waffle Maker – Your waffle maker will need to be sprayed with cooking spray to prevent waffles from sticking.
  • Mixing Waffle Batter – Do not overmix waffle batter. You want to mix until your ingredients are combined.

Egg Nog Waffles Variation Ideas:

  • Ground Cinnamon – For fluffy eggnog waffles with cinnamon add in a teaspoon of cinnamon. It adds warm flavor and a great combination with the eggnog.
  • Nutmeg – A teaspoon nutmeg is also a nice addition with the other ingredients.
  • Gluten Free Waffles – Feel free to make this recipe with gluten free flour instead of all purpose flour.
  • Waffle Iron – These waffles can be made with any type of waffle maker. You can even make Belgium waffle maker or a regular one.
