Holiday Eggnog Recipe

In this video, Betty demonstrates how to make her Festive Holiday Eggnog. This is a drink that uses common ingredients that combine to give an uncommon taste! Youll want to keep the ingredients on hand throughout the holiday season to treat your guests to luscious nutmeg-topped eggnog!
Note: On the video, I made only one-half of the recipe for demonstrations purposes, but I am giving you the full recipe below, so you will note that all amounts have been doubled, and this makes a nice amount for a punch bowl.

Ingredients:

6 eggs
14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 cups milk
1/2 pint heavy whipping cream (very cold)
salt, to taste
ground nutmeg, for sprinkling the top of the punch bowl or the top of individual servings
light rum, to taste (if desired)

In a large mixing bowl, beat 6 eggs. Mix in 14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, 4 cups milk, and salt, to taste. Beat ½ pint heavy whipping cream, until soft peaks form. Gently fold the whipped cream into the egg and milk mixture. Pour into a punch bowl. Sprinkle the top with nutmeg. Chill for at least 4 hours before serving. You may add light rum, if you want an alcoholic version of eggnog. You may also sprinkle the tops of the individual servings with additional nutmeg. This is a beautiful and tasty drink that you can have all year around, but it is very special during the holiday season.

How to Store Your Thanksgiving Leftovers

CHOW Associate Editor Roxanne Webber stores the leftovers from a Thanksgiving feast the right way: by removing the meat from her turkey within a couple of hours of cooling, separating side dishes for repurposing later, and labeling the storage containers for easy identification.

Turkey and Dumplings Recipe

In this video, Betty demonstrates how to use some of your leftover Thanksgiving turkey to make some tasty Turkey and Dumplings. You may use this with freshly cooked turkey or chicken or in canned form, if you dont have leftover turkey on hand. This is a great comfort food in the South, and is good any time of the year, but particularly when you dont want to reheat leftovers from your holiday feast!

Ingredients:

for dumplings:

2 cups baking mix (I used Bisquick.)
2/3 cup milk
¼ teaspoon poultry seasoning, optional (I used ½ teaspoon poultry seasoning, and my husband and I both think less would be better, or you can just omit it.)

for turkey ( or chicken) stew:

10.75 oz. can condensed cream of celery soup
32 oz. chicken broth (Use more, if you want the dumpling gravy to be thinner, and definitely add more when reheating the dumplings for a second meal.)
2 cups leftover turkey or chicken, chopped into cubes

In a medium-sized bowl, mix 2 cups baking mix, ¼ teaspoon poultry seasoning, and 2/3 cup milk. Stir until combined, and set aside. To prepare your stew, use a large Dutch oven or large pot, and add a 10.75 oz. can of cream of celery soup and 32 oz. of chicken broth. Stir until combined. Place the broth mixture over low heat and bring it to a boil. Drop dumpling mixture by teaspoonfuls into boiling broth mixture. Cook over low heat for 5 minutes. Cover the pot with a lid and cook for an additional 5 minutes. Check the dumplings with a fork to see if they are done. When the dumplings are done, add 2 cups leftover turkey or chicken and reheat back to boiling. Serve immediately. Enjoy!!!
