My family doesn't drink eggnog during the holidays!
It just has never been a part of how we celebrates, but next to Christmas trees and Barry Manilow CD's, The first thing I think of when I here "Christmas" is eggnog. I think I've tried it once, but then again, that's not the point. The drink is suppose to symbolize being together with the family and getting drunk off your "arse". So, I needed a easy recipe that I could incorporate this season and use to try and start some new traditions in the Romance Junkie Household! =)
|Paula Deen's "Mama's Eggnog"|
- 6 egg, separated*
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 1 pint heavy cream
- 4 pints milk
- 1/2 pint
- 1 tablespoon vanilla
In a bowl beat the egg yolks with the 1/2 cup of sugar until thick. In another bowl beat the egg whites with 1/4 cup of sugar until thick. In a third bowl beat the cream until thick. Add the cream to the yolks, fold in the egg whites, and add the milk, Bourbon, vanilla, and a pinch of nutmeg, if desired. Chill in freezer before serving.
There you go..that's it
Foodnetwork (and me too, don't want your death on my hands) would like to remind you:
RAW EGG WARNING
Food Network Kitchens suggest caution in consuming raw and lightly-cooked eggs due to the slight risk of Salmonella or other food-borne illness. To reduce this risk, we recommend you use only fresh, properly-refrigerated, clean, grade A or AA eggs with intact shells, and avoid contact between the yolks or whites and the shell
