1 (14 ounce) can
sweetened condensed milk
eggs, beaten well
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.
Fantastic recipe. But me and my wife like to add a fifth of Traveler's Club vodka to the batch. Cheers!
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.
As others have said, this is a simple basic recipe, but made it because store-bought is so full of sugar. Threw everything in a blender. I substituted 2 Cups of whipping cream for 2 cups of the quart of milk, used twice the vanilla, and added a teaspoon of nutmeg and 1/4 teaspoon of ground cloves. I also used regular unsweetened lowfat canned milk and added 1/4 Cup Splenda. I also used pasturized liquid eggs (Egg Beaters) instead of eggs for safety. Yummy nog and can be easily spiked, I'm sure.
This was very good and simple. My family loves egg nog, but I have always been a bit scared to make it. It definately needed a bit of nutmeg to get the traditional taste, but was a very good starter. I made two seperate batches one for the kids, and one with a bit of "cheer" for the adults!
i love it i have never made egg nog before and so far this is the best!!!!
