My family's Christmas Eve Egg Nog

Linda Edwards


THis rich delicious egg nog has been a tradition for our extended family's Christmas Eve gathering for the past forty years.
(At least one of the grand-children request this every year.)I hope you and your family will also enjoy this seasonal treat.
Note: Originally published in Junior League of Baton Rouge's River Road Recipes 1972ed.,I eliminated the alcohol so that it is user friendly for the entire family.
