Christmas isn't complete without eggnog and this easy eggnog recipe is sure to please your family and guests!
I love eggnog, but I have to be honest with you...too much of it makes me sick. I mean literally sick.
The problem is, I absolutely adore eggnog.
Every Christmas Eve, my sister makes a big batch of it and brings it to my father's house, then another batch to my mom's on Christmas afternoon. Brad is constantly monitoring me, making sure that I stick to just ONE glass of it. As long as I stick to one glass per day, I am fine. After those 2 days, I make do by using homemade eggnog in recipes (make sure to try my eggnog cookies as well as my eggnog bread pudding recipe) or in my coffee!
Now - there are 2 ways to make eggnog. You can either make it with raw eggs or cook the eggs & cream. I grew up drinking the raw eggs version and I never got sick. However, times have changed with the way our food is produced and I am no longer willing to take the chance of salmonella (especially since I am giving it to my children), so my easy eggnog recipe is the cooked version!
