Try A 30 Minute Egg Nog Recipe This Holiday Season

One thing I grew up loving? Egg Nog.  There’s something about milk and nutmeg and sugar… it’s the taste of Christmas in a cup, and something my children have come to love, too (not spiked, of course!)
30 minute egg nog recipe
As an adult, I appreciate the joy of making egg nog a little more.  It requires patience and a steady hand, but luckily, it can be done easily with this 30 minute egg nog recipe!  (The decision to turn this into an adult beverage is completely up to you!)

  • 4 cups milk
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 12 large eggs, separated
  • 1/2 cup rum, bourbon or whiskey (optional) – you could also add equal parts bourbon, brandy and rum to equal 1/2 cup
  • 1 cup heavy cream, chilled
  • ground nutmeg, for garnish

In a medium saucepan, whisk the milk and sugar over medium heat until the sugar is dissolved, 1 to 2 minutes. In a large bowl, whisk the egg yolks.  Continue whisking and pour the hot mixture into the yolks in a slow and steady stream.
