Ingredients:

Soft Custard :
  • 3 eggs, slightly beaten
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • Dash salt
  • 2 1/2 cups milk
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
Eggnog:
  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • 2 Tbsp. powdered sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/2 cup light rum
  • 1 or 2 drops yellow food color, if desired
  • Ground nutmeg

Directions:

In a 2 quart heavy saucepan, stir eggs, granulated sugar, and salt until well mixed. Gradually stir in milk. Cook over medium heat 10 to 15 minutes, stirring constantly, until mixture just coats a metal spoon; remove from heat. Stir in 1 teaspoon vanilla. Place saucepan in cold water until custard is cool. (If custard curdles, beat vigorously with hand beater until smooth.) Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours but no longer than 24 hours.

Just before serving, in chilled medium bowl, beat whipping cream, powdered sugar and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla with electric mixer on high speed until stiff. Gently stir 1 cup of the whipped cream, the rum and food color into custard.

Pour custard mixture into small punch bowl. Drop remaining whipped cream in mounds onto custard mixture. Sprinkle with nutmeg. Serve immediately. Store in refrigerator up to 2 days.

Combine egg with sugar and salt. Add milk and vanilla. Serve cold in tall glasses and sprinkle with nutmeg. For fluffy eggnog, separate egg, beat yolk as above, then fold in stiffly beaten egg white.

For a quick holiday eggnog cup of cheer, add a scoop of country style vanilla ice cream (the type with lots of eggs) to a mug then pour some scalded milk over the top. Add your adult beverage choice of rum or brandy. For a non-alcoholic beverage, use extracts. Sprinkle some grated nutmeg or allspice on top and enjoy!
