Happy Sunday loves!
I hope you have all had a fantastic weekend…guess what!
I finally started my Christmas shopping! Emphasis on the word started…as in not at all finished…Nevermind the fact that I’m sure to be running around town like a mad woman two days before Christmas this year…I have some pancakes to tell you guys about!
Obviously, I didn’t get my eggnog fix the other day with my oats. I swear I wasn’t even finished with my bowl and I was already having dreams of pancakes.
So this morning, I made my dreams a reality and took BB along for the ride!

You can find these microplane graters at Bed Bath & Beyond or any kitchen accessory type store for around 10 bucks…sounds a bit pricey but they make such a useful tool around the kitchen. I use mine for nutmeg, cinnamon, chocolate, zesting citrus, and I’ve even used it for grating cheese a few times!
But anywho…back to some delicious pancakes!
Eggnog Pancakes in the buff
So risque! 😉
Coated in a good drizzle of pumpkin-y goodness…
And dusted with a little snow!
The flavor of the eggnog shines PERFECTLY thanks to the addition of the nutmeg.
And rolling every fluffy bite into a pool of spicy pumpkin syrup makes your mouth want to sing!
Fa la la la laaaaaaaaaa!
Luckily BB accepts the fact that along with taking 5 million pictures of our food before we sit down to eat, I occasionally burst into song after the meal. Honestly, I don’t think he cares what I do as long as there’s bacon on the table! 😉
Well, speaking of meals…I have some veggies to chop for enchiladas tonight.
What is your favorite/mostly used kitchen tool/gadget?
I would have to say my microplane grater or Magic Bullet.
What is a kitchen tool/gadget that you WANT to own?
Umm, a juicer, a Vitamix, a KitchenAid stand mixer…my list could go on and on! 😉
yummmyyyyyy! i really wanted pancakes this morning, but my husband convinced me to have eggs. now i’m really bummed that i didn’t convince him on the pancakes! i might have to get up early some day this week to make them…
i use my food processor all.the.time. and i love it!
i’m wishing for a microplane grater…! 😉
And THIS is why I love you 😉 I love Egg Nog and anything egg nog flavored.
I love my Ninja for my daily smoothie/shake. I also love my mini whisk from Pampered Chef.
I would love a Vita-Mix! But that is reserved for the “Not in this lifetime” list!!
Good luck shopping!
Wrote a post with eggnog pancakes last week! Just waiting to run out of cookies to talk about to post it 🙂
Pleaseeeeeeeeee come make me pancakes again. Pretty, pretty please sweet friend 🙂 These look PHENOMENAL. Way to go.
Thanks girlie! Sorry I missed your call the other day! We def need to catch up soon!
Never tried real eggnog – I don’t think I’d like it 😉 These pancakes though I would totally chow down on 🙂

Happy Monday! xo
Somehow you always manage to outdo yourself with every new breakfast recipe you post! These look amaaaazing! BB is one lucky guy to get to eat all of your culinary creations!
My favourite kitchen gadget is my food processor!
my favorite kitchen gadget as of late is my milk frother! It’s really not helping my caffeine addiction.
If I liked eggnog, I would totally hit this recipe up 🙂 looks lovely!
The appliance that gets the most use is my food processor. Although I just got a hand-me-down Vitamix (!!) so we’ll see if that replaces it.
Woo hoo! Love hand-me-downs like those!
You seriously have the most amazing pancakes I’ve ever seen. I’m not even a HUGE pancake fan, but every time I seem them on your blog I start drooling!
Aww, you are too sweet Liz! Love ya!
Okay, I’m ready for my second breakfast! Seriously, these look awesome. I’m in looove with all things eggnog right now–especially So Delicious coconut nog. If you can find it, definitely buy a carton! But I’m warning you…it’s addicting.
Happy Monday! <3
Oooo I love that you combined the holiday flavors with the eggnog and the pumpkin, nice fusion breakfast! 🙂 And you know I still want all the juicy deets about BB…. maybe a little email to me when you have time, perhaps? 😉 Happy day, pretty lady!
Definitely! As soon as I find a minute to breath! Haha!
