I love eggnog but had never made it before… or even had fresh eggnog before…
But because the ingredient list on commercial eggnog is full of chemicals and stabilizers and artificial colours and flavours that I would just rather not be part of my diet, to get my eggnog fix, I finally bit the bullet and found a recipe… and it is SO easy to make and tastes SO much better!
- 4 eggs yolks
- 1/3 cup of sugar + 1 Tbsp
- 2 cups of milk
- 1 cup of cream
- 3 oz of rum or bourbon or a mix of both (can be left out for an alcohol free version)
- 1 tsp nutmeg
- 4 egg whites
First, beat egg yolks until light, add 1/3 cup of sugar and beat until completely dissolved.. add milk, cream, nutmeg and rum and mix together well and put aside.
Whip egg whites until soft peaks, then start adding sugar (1 tbsp) and whip until stiff peaks…stir the egg whites into the the mixture and then chill…
This makes about 5-6 glasses worth…
