  • This unique trifle uses AE Egg Nog in place of traditional vanilla custard to create a light-tasting dessert that’s as delicious as it is pretty. We love serving these in individual trifle bowls or ramekins, but you can also make this in a large glass bowl or traditional trifle dish to serve a crowd.
  • Kick it up a notch when you serve this Middle Eastern inspired dip or sauce made with AE Greek Yogurt, cucumber and mint.
  • This hearty soup, made with AE Milk and Cheddar French Onion Dip captures all the flavors of a cheeseburger. A winner at tailgating parties and Fall gatherings! The lettuce, tomato, and pickle garnishes add to the flavor—and the fun!
  • Classic comfort food, this shepherd’s pie has all the hearty goodness you remember from your childhood, but even better with AE real sour cream dip. Use ground turkey or a frozen veggie combo of your choice to put your own signature spin on the dish.
  • This classic dessert gets a makeover with Greek yogurt for extra creaminess and the ultimate in chocolate satisfaction.
  • Waldorf Salad gets a makeover with creamy AE Lowfat Yogurt, sweet-tart Craisins and crunchy pecans.
  • The flavors of pumpkin, sugar and spice combine with sour cream and milk for crisp, yet tender waffles that are drizzled with a homemade buttermilk caramel syrup. Breakfast or dessert?!
  • AE Cottage Cheese and Greek Yogurt add flavor and creamy texture in this spin on a pub classic. It’s delicious with pita crisps or fresh veggies for dipping, but we also love it as a topper on baked potatoes!
  • French Toast made delicious and easy (the night before) with its own caramel syrup.
  • Egg Nog in a frozen state is the perfect accompaniment to holiday cakes and pies. Imagine this on a piece of pecan pie… Outrageous!
  • The texture and mild flavor of this cousin to the common cabbage gets a tasty makeover with the addition of garlic and the creamy tanginess of sour cream.
  • Creamy rice pudding is a holiday tradition in Scandinavian homes, but this one gets a flavor twist with AE Horchata and a delicious fruit sauce. This is a great dessert for entertaining because everything can be made a day or two ahead and chilled.
  • AE Egg Nog adds richer flavor and texture to this American holiday classic. You should probably bake an extra one!
  • Classic Greek Yogurt, fresh lemon and spices combine to make a zesty marinade for this Mediterranean inspired main dish.
  • This recipe, a favorite of Miriam’s grandmother was published in a 1950s church cookbook. It’s light, sweet and simple—perfect for summertime (although Miriam makes it every Christmas and it’s the perfect end to a rich holiday dinner).
  • A simple swap of AE Egg Nog for water and just a little less sugar really makes this Pumpkin Bread!
  • AE Ranch Dip punches up this “low-bake” appetizer with bold flavor and creaminess. Think of it as a crudité platter on a pizza crust! Outstanding!
  • Comfort food to feed a crowd starts with a rotisserie chicken in a milky gravy that’s topped with the golden flakiness of buttermilk biscuits.
  • Bread pudding never tasted so good! Enjoy this simple dessert during the holiday season when AE Egg Nog is readily available.
  • “Tres leches” means “three milks” in Spanish, and this vanilla cake soaked in a three-milk syrup and chilled overnight, is a holiday tradition in many Latin American countries. Our rendition features AE Milk and Sour Cream and is something really special. Frosted with AE whipped cream and served with a winter fruit compote, it just might become a holiday tradition in your house too!
  • Blueberry pancakes with a creamy, protein twist.
  • This cross between an oatmeal cookie and a muffin is anything but boring. Serve warm with milk for an extra hearty start to the day.
  • As festive as it is delicious! Egg Nog and sour cream make for semi-homemade holiday deliciousness.
  • Using a rotisserie chicken, this satisfying soup balances the boldness of southwest flavors in a creamy chicken stock.
