White Chocolate Egg Nog

Maggie May Schill


When I told people I was going to be making egg nog this year I got a lot of people replying with horror. Some people said "AHhh, you can't feed people raw eggs!!" Others said "the stuff you get in the stores has been pasteurize, you just can't serve raw eggs to people." Both these statements are highly irritating.

1- The stuff in the stores is not pasteurized specially after the milk and eggs are made into nog form.
2- Egg nog doesn't contain raw eggs... at least not how I've ever made it.

The eggs are cooked in a tempering process which I will describe below.

Add nutmeg and cinnamon to taste.

Let the mixture cool on stove top to about room temperature.
Then refrigerate for 2 hours.
In a mixing bowl beat heavy cream, remaining sugar, and rum(optional) until it forms soft peaks.
Stir whipped cream mixture into the chilled egg nog mixture until it is completely incorporated.

Serve chilled!
Side note:
If you do not properly temper your white chocolate like I stated above the chocolate may separate from the egg nog in the cooling process.
