A delicious family tradition you'll love! This simple, yet sweet easy egg nog recipe uses 4 ingredients to make a yummy alternative to store bought egg nog. Check out this recipe now, you'll be glad you did.
Now that I'm the one making the turkey and other Thanksgiving treats, I don't get to sit and enjoy the parade as much as I used to. But I do still try and keep it on in the background and cook with a glass of eggnog in my hand.
It's probably one of the easiest things that I make all Thanksgiving.
Start by separating 2 eggs. I've always had a hard time doing this, but we finally bought an Egg Separator and I can't believe how much easier it was. I highly recommend one if this is something you do often.
In a large punch bowl, add 6 cups of Milk
1 Tablespoon of Vanilla.
1 small package of Instant Vanilla pudding.
and the Egg yolks.
Blend the mix up very well.
You an just drink it now. I'm not a huge fan of the "fluff" that goes on the top, so I highly recommend that, but if you want, you can add a little extra sweetness to the Eggnog by topping it with:
2 Egg whites
1/4 cup Sugar
pinch of Salt
Mix well and add to the eggnog.
Sprinkle a little nutmeg on the top of your eggnog and Enjoy!
This is not a very sweet eggnog compared to those that are sold in the stores. I think that's part of why I like it so much. In a way, it's more of a lightly flavored milk. It goes perfect with some Pumpkin Cookies or Homemade Fudge and starts the holiday season off in the "right" way.
