The eggs are cooked in this wonderful egg nog! Stir in any extra flavoring or garnishes just before serving.
INGREDIENTS (for 1 servings):
- 6 eggs
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon salt (optional)
- 1 quart milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
In large saucepan, beat together eggs, sugar and salt (if desired); stir in 2 cups of the milk. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until mixture is thick enough to coat a metal spoon with a thin film and reaches at least 160 degrees F (70 degrees C). Remove pan from heat.
Stir remaining 2 cups milk and vanilla extract into the mixture. Cover and refrigerate until thoroughly chilled; several hours or overnight. Just before serving, pour the egg nog into a bowl or pitcher.
