Egg Nog for the Trail

Dennis Schmitt, known for his work on the Philmont Country Cookbook and for authoring the A Taste of Troop 928 Cookbook, generously granted permission for me to share some trail egg nog recipes with you. You can find links to both cookbooks on MacScouter’s Cooking and Cookbooks page.

The first is a family friendly version and is completely yummy. Dennis says that it comes from the Troop 928 cookbook but may have appeared in an earlier book.

This second version is for the adults only.
