Default Homemade Eggnog

I just tried this recipe with the kids and it came out tasty, and it was super easy so I figured I'd pass it along:

-------------------------------------------
Ingredients:
6 eggs
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 tsp salt (optional)
1 qt milk (divided: 2 cups & 2 cups)
1 tsp vanilla
ground nutmeg


Directions:
In large saucepan beat together eggs, sugar & salt (if desired).

Stir in 2 cups of milk. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until mixture is thick enough to coat a metal spoon w/a thin film & reaches 160* (above that and it will start to curdle). For me, the cooking time was about 12 minutes.

Remove from heat & stir in remaining 2 cups of milk & vanilla.

Serve warm or cover and refrigerate for several hours/overnight.

----------------------------------------------

The kids and I each had a cup right off the oven (the 2 cups of cold milk cools it sufficiently to be consumed by kids immediately) and it was yummy. Thinner than traditional eggnog, but I imagine it'll be thicker tomorrow.

I used 2% milk (since we still had some leftover from this weekend). We normally only drink skim milk, so it would probably be even thinner if we didn't have the 2% on hand.

Enjoy!

I'm an eggnog junkie! I need an intervention......
Didn't realize you had to heat it to make but then I should have noticed it has 6 raw eggs in the mix.

I didn't realize it was so easy, thanks - I do have a half pint of brandy lying around too.

I prefer the Alton Brown recipe. It gets you drunkerer.

Nice Don. I have everything on hand, Im gonna try this on Friday. You answered my question with the 2%. I cant imagine skim would be any good.

Note - I will go on the record for liking eggnog unadulterated. It is so good by itself, I dont put the booze in there.

I like the texture of the egg whites folded in (and the bourbon)

You are nothing if not consistent.

I saw this and thought I would pass it on. Eggnog is delicious. It also must be the most fattening liquid on the planet. Thank God it seems to be around about one month a year.

Egg Noggin (as G1 is calling it) is in progress!

Edit - I think we just made custard!
