This was a super simple recipe. The egg nog came out tasting very good. I had to improvise slightly. I used fat free sweetened condensed milk and almond milk in stead of whole milk. I will also add a pinch of freshly grated nutmeg next time.


Make sure the eggs are THOROUGHLY beaten before adding to any milk. I use a small food processor/food chopper. And I eat them to a light yellow color so all the white is well blended.


This is a terrific and simple base recipe! A big thanks to the poster. I made eggnog a long time ago from another recipe and hated it. I went back to the store bought stuff until today. It's Particularly nice if you don't want to make a lot. I did modify it some. I used 1/2 whipping cream and 1/2 milk because I wanted it to be creamy. I added cloves and nutmeg to taste (for me that ended up being 1 1/2 t nutmeg and 1 t cloves. I also increased the vanilla. I increase the vanilla on any recipe I try that contains it though.
