We eat baked oatmeal year-round so it’s nice to have some seasonal favorites to look forward to. This Eggnog Baked Oatmeal Recipe is deliciously simple to make and the eggnog makes it rich and creamy. It’s perfect for Christmas brunch.
Baked oatmeal is a simple but hearty dish, and is a staple in our house because it’s easy to prep-ahead and reheat for a quick hot breakfast before kids go off to school (or homeschool) for the day. I often make baked oatmeal with raisins or this Applesauce Baked Oatmeal, but sometimes the kids get a little tired of the same old thing. That’s when I pull out our seasonal baked oatmeal recipes.
One of my favorite seasonal recipes is Pumpkin Pie Baked Oatmeal. It’s custardy pumpkiny spiced deliciousness. But all too soon, pumpkin season is over. I get a little sad when it ends but the fact that eggnog season comes directly after it makes it a little easier to bear.
And just like that, ’tis the season for Eggnog Baked Oatmeal. Rolled oats baked with thick rich eggnog and eggs makes a somewhat boring ingredient, rolled oats, a decadent breakfast treat.
What kind of eggnog should you use?
Use your favorite kind of eggnog (and tell me in the comments which one you love)! I like to use a nice thick rich eggnog but you can use any kind of dairy or non-dairy eggnog here. I just recommend that if you use an extra “spiced” eggnog you probably want to cut down on the spices you add to it.
Can you use quick oats instead of rolled oats?
I’ve used quick oats in place of the rolled oats in baked oatmeal but it isn’t my favorite. The end result is mushier than using heartier rolled oats. If you are a fan of less texture to your oatmeal you may like it.
Can you use steel-cut oats?
You can use steel-cut oats if you’d like but you will want to add additional liquid. I have not tested this recipe using them so I can’t tell you how much you would need to adjust the liquid.
