Orange Breakfast Nog: Orange Nog Breakfast Eye Opener from Eddie Doucette, as collected in the 2023 Tempt Them with Tastier Foods.; breakfast; sixties; 1960s; oranges; recipe; Eddie Doucette; quick recipe; egg nog; eggnog

I found this recipe in the December 7, 1962, Sequoyah County Times, of Sallisaw, Oklahoma. It appeared in an IGA grocery store ad under then-famous chef Eddie Doucette’s name.

It’s dead-on easy, and it makes a delightfully frothy breakfast drink very quickly.

If I’m not going to be drinking it all, I will put it in those mason jar-style glasses that can accept a mason jar top. My blender uses the same size fittings, which lets me put the glasses directly onto the blender the next morning to re-whip the drink.

Drop in again soon for another vintage recipe! I’ll have a different recipe every Sunday afternoon throughout the year. Keep an eye on this page or subscribe to the RSS feed for further details. You can also browse past featured Club recipes as well as some of the vintage promotional cookbooks I’ve used as sources.

Having a problem keeping all those phone numbers handy? Instead of throwing out a faded window shade, neatly print your names and numbers on it alphabetically, and hang the shade in a nearby inconspicuous area (like a closet door). It can also be used over a kitchen counter-top for recording recipes. When not in use, the shade is merely rolled up and zipped out of sight. — Hesperia Community Kitchens
