I don't like using raw eggs... so this is what our family has for our holiday egg nog.... it is very creamy and good too....

Depending on your tastes, you can add a bit less milk or a bit more milk...

Enjoy.... And.... Happy Holidays!

How to Make Cooked Egg Nog


  1. Beat eggs, sugar, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg together in a large saucepan. Stir in half the milk (3 cups). Cook on medium - low heat, being careful not to scorch, cook, stirring constantly until mixture is thick, and it thinly coats a spoon. Remove from heat and mix in the remaining milk and vanilla. Put in a container with tight fitting lid. Cover and chill overnight or until ready to use.

    *** Serve the eggnog with a dollop of whip cream and a light dusting of cinnamon and nutmeg (optional).
  2. *** You can also use Rum or Rum Extract to desired taste and strength.
