    We've been talking about it so much, I have to know. What are your favorite Eggnog recipes? I know the ingredients sometimes gross me out a bit so over the past handful of years I've been just buying it, but this year I might like to make my own. Can anyone help me?

    Sneaky tasty eggnog. If it sits a while, you need to stir whites back in.

    Fresh Christmas Eggnog

    1 cup sugar
    8 eggs, separated
    1 quart half and half
    1 teaspoon vanilla
    1/3-1/2 cup bourbon
    1/3-1/2 cup brandy
    1/3-1/2 cup bourbon
    nutmeg for garnish

    In large bowl, beat egg yolks with sugar and vanilla. Add half and half and mix well.
    In second bowl, beat whites until stiff.
    Add booze to first bowl (may bubble up) and fold in egg whites.
    Garnish with nutmeg.

    This sounds so good...but...I'm kind of afraid of all those raw eggs. :?: :?: Are all eggnogs made with raw eggs? Is it just me or does anyone else feel this way?

    When you add the booze, it actually cooks the eggs, or pickles them in the least. If you know where your eggs come from, it should be fine. I imagine you could heat the yolk mixture before adding the whites.

    If you look at a carton of eggnog, it is mainly crap chemicals and seaweed or guar gum. Real stuff is sooo much tastier. I'll buy the freshest eggs available and take my chances.

    Easy Egg Nog
    2 eggs, beaten well
    3 tbs sugar
    1 tsp vanilla
    1/8 tsp nutmeg, ground
    2 1/3 cups milk
    Preparation:
    Blend all ingredients together and serve chilled.

    Easy Eggnog
    6 eggs
    3 cups milk
    8 tablespoons sugar
    3 teaspoon vanilla essence
    1/2 teaspoon nutmeg, ground

    In a large bowl, beat the eggs using an electric beater (if available).
    By turn, add milk & sugar.
    Continue beating until mixture thickens slightly.
    Add in the vanilla essence & ground nutmeg.
    Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until chilled (at least 3 hours).

    Serves: 8.

    Diamond Eggnog Recipe
    4 + cups milk
    4 eggs, separated
    1 (125g/ 5 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
    1 tablespoon sugar
    1 teaspoon vanilla essence
    30ml (or approx 1 oz) rum
    teaspoon nutmeg or cinnamon, ground

    Using a mixer, beat the egg yolks in a large bowl for 5 - 10 minutes; they need to be thick and resemble the colour of butter.
    A little bit at a time, add in the milk, condensed milk, sugar and vanilla essence.
    In a separate bowl, beat the egg whites to stiff peaks.
    Slowly fold the egg whites into the rest of the mixture.
    Add rum.
    Stir gently.
    Serve in cups and garnish with ground nutmeg or cinnamon.

    Serves: 6.

    Thanks, they all sound Yummy, Moonpi your's would be great for staying warm during these cold evenings.

    Belinda you can buy pasteurized eggs, they are gently warmed and you can buy them at the groccery store. They are right there with the other eggs and look just the same. Walmart has been having them avail. for quite a while, you can read an article I found for you about it here. http://www.suite101.com/article.cfm/microbiology/9367 They only cost a tiny bit more. If I recall correctly, they are at or just below the cost of brown eggs.

    :shock: Okay here's what the ingredients list is on my purchased Dairyland Original Egg Nog: Water, sugar, modified milk ingred, cream, glucose-fructose, egg yolk, artifical flavour, nutmeg, natural colour, butter, guar gum, carrageenan, dipotassium phosphate .. . and for all that, it's pretty yummy even without the rum :)

    My mother used to make egg nogs... she used very hot milk.... because of the raw eggs... they were beautiful, and I am still alive... in my 70's.
