Egg nog!

One of my favorite things about this time of year is egg nog. It's delicious.

I've always just bought egg nog at the store, but this year, I'm of a mood to make my own. Anybody have a good recipe they'd like to share?

Re: Egg nog!

Yes please!

Oh... wait... no, I don't have a recipe.

My mother used to make eggnog that she cooked so, there were never any slimy bits in it, it was more like liquid custard.

Re: Egg nog!

No recipe... just stopping in to proclaim my love of all things Nog. I hope my local frozen yogurt joints get some Egg Nog on tap for this month.

Re: Egg nog!

I don't drink it straight but it's all I use in my coffee this time of the year.

Re: Egg nog!

I think I gained about 8 lbs one Christmas season drinking egg nog w/ Captain Morgan's every day. That was the last time I had it.

Re: Egg nog!

I am not really a fan of drinking egg nog but Turkey Hill makes Egg Nog ice cream that is to die for.

A little shot of rum on top and its the best desert

Re: Egg nog!

This is the recipe I used when I was a kid:

1 cup milk
1 egg
1 tablespoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
dash salt

That's the simplest form. There are lots of improvements, like adding cream or alcohol. Or guar gum, if you like that supermarket flavor.

Re: Egg nog!

I love the store bought "custard nog". It's like 300 calories a glass and 100% of one's RDA for cholesterol... but it is so delicious!

Re: Egg nog!

I make mine pretty much like Nick Danger does. I have other recipes, that add more eggs or use half and half or cream, but the simple one is preferable for me. I don't need any help being a richly marbled fatgirlperson.

I don't think I've ever had egg nog. Maybe this year.

In Alton I trust. Always came out good. This year I also made a batch of Eggnog that will be aging for a year.

Re: Egg nog!

I imagine the recipe just involves some eggs, some nog, and some nutmeg

Re: Egg nog!

Absolutely NO ONE in my family likes egg nog except for me. That means when I buy it for the apartment (just my wife and me) or my mom buys it for me when we go down to my parents' place for Christmas, it's just for me. That's great. And yet... When I watch how fast a full carton becomes empty, it's pretty sobering. I've taken to measuring out servings so I don't feel like a glutton.

I'm also on day twelve of thirty without fast food. If it goes well (and it is, so far) I may see how long I can go which means no McDonald's Egg Nog Milkshake for me this year.

Re: Egg nog!

I don't make it, but I love to drink it. It's a love or hate kinda thing I guess.

I dig egg nog, and I also have a recipe for cranberry-egg nog bread that's pretty damn good.

Either way, a few decades from now you'll be dead. Do you really think it will matter then that you had some egg nog at Christmas of 2010?
