20 Days 'Till Christmas: Eggnog

I have never had Eggnog. Always been curious about it, but the name of it just drives me away from *lol* Maybe I'll get around to trying it one day =)

* 6 eggs, beaten
* 2 1/4 cups milk
* 1/3 cup white sugar
* 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
* 1 cup heavy whipping cream
* 2 teaspoons white sugar
* 1 pinch ground nutmeg

1. In a large saucepan, combine the eggs, milk and 1/3 cup sugar. Cook and stir over medium heat until mixture coats a metal spoon.
2. Remove from heat. Cool quickly by placing pan in a sink or bowl of ice water and stirring 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in the vanilla. Chill 4 to 24 hours.
3. Before serving, whip the cream and 2 tablespoons sugar until soft peaks form. Transfer chilled egg mixture to a punch bowl. Fold in whipped cream mixture and serve at once. Sprinkle each serving with nutmeg.


  1. I must say, all those eggs freak me out a little bit. I bet it's a nice taste, but I may stick with soynog...
