For the Eggnog-Cranberry Syrup

  • ½ cup prepared jellied cranberry sauce
  • ¼ cup Shamrock Farms eggnog
  • ¼ cup pure maple syrup

For the Eggnog Whipped Cream

  • ½ cup Shamrock Farms heavy whipping cream
  • ¼ cup Shamrock Farms eggnog

For the Sandwich

  • 2 eggs beaten
  • ¼ cup Shamrock Farms eggnog
  • pinch of freshly grated nutmeg
  • 2 slices of thick-cut white bread
  • 2 ounces ham
  • 2 ounces gruyere or swiss cheese
  • 2 slices cooked bacon
  • 1 tablespoon mayonnaise or to taste
  • 1 tablespoon butter


Make the Eggnog-Cranberry Syrup

  • Combine the cranberry sauce, eggnog, and maple syrup in a small saucepan over medium-low heat. Whisk until the sauce is combined and warmed through.

Make the Eggnog Whipped Cream

  • In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, combine the heavy cream and eggnog. Start the mixer on low speed and gradually work your way up to high speed. Whip the cream and eggnog until they hold a stiff peak-- about 3 minutes.

Make the Sandwich

  • In a wide, shallow bowl (large enough to hold your bread), whisk together the eggs, eggnog, and nutmeg until combined. Set aside.
  • Layer the sandwich any way you like: I prefer to spread a small amount of mayonnaise on each piece of bread, then layer cheese on each side, and finish with ham and bacon. Then flip one side onto the other.
  • Dip the sandwich into the egg-eggnog mixture, making sure to coat it evenly on all sides.
  • Heat a nonstick pan over medium-high heat. Add the butter and wait for it to melt. Once the butter has melted, add the sandwich and cook for 1-2 minutes per side, or until the edges are golden brown and the cheese has melted.
  • Serve the sandwich immediately with the eggnog-cranberry syrup and eggnog whipped cream.
