Merry Christmas Eve everyone! It’s not too late to make eggnog! You can even spike it, if’n ya want!
If you do, please share so that I can live vicariously through you! Please!
There are a lot of people who worry about raw eggs, so I’ve got a cooked eggnog recipe for you. Please see the note from the Food Network kitchen below!
I topped mine with cinnamon, mmmmm….. Looks like angel wings! Merry Christmas!
4 egg yolks
1/3 cup sugar, plus 1 tablespoon
1 pint whole milk
1 cup heavy cream
1 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
4 egg whites
In a medium saucepan, over high heat, combine the milk, heavy cream and nutmeg and bring just to a boil, stirring occasionally. Remove from the heat and gradually temper the hot mixture into the egg and sugar mixture. Then return everything to the pot and cook until the mixture reaches 160 degrees F. Remove from the heat and pour into a medium mixing bowl, and set in the refrigerator to chill.
In a medium mixing bowl, beat the egg whites to soft peaks. With the mixer running gradually add the 1 tablespoon of sugar and beat until stiff peaks form. Whisk the egg whites into the chilled mixture.
