My Favorite Egg Nog for Christmas Morning!

Welcome to the blitz, at Our Sunday Cafe!

Every day we will offer something special, for you to enjoy, right up to Christmas Eve!

Many of these will be new recipes, and some will be reminders from the past. Some are our favorite recipes that happen to be too delicious to leave hidden in the archives.

So it’s full steam ahead to sharing a great recipe for you to enjoy every day during these very busy days of December……this season, eat well, be happy and celebrate with those you love!

As part of our December 2019 blitz at OurSundayCafe.

When I first tried commercial Egg Nog, my first thought was "this is too thick, almost like drinking pudding". And from that experience, I thought that I did not like Egg Nog. But nothing is further from the truth! Old fashioned Egg Nog is simply delicious, and while there is controversy over the consumption of raw eggs, I have never given it another thought, but I do understand we all need and get to make that decision for ourselves. 

But this Egg Nog is the silkiest, most delicious drink you will ever enjoy. Rich with half & half or whipping cream if you like, vanilla and pumpkin pie spice. 

We have a tradition of homemade bread toasted up and sprinkled with cinnamon sugar and this Egg Nog for Christmas morning. We do add scrambled eggs for those who need a more substantial breakfast, but Christmas morning would not be complete without this Egg Nog and cinnamon toast! 

Oh and I would advise you to make enough to have some later in the day over a bit of ice, with a touch of rum or whiskey, it really is a tasty way to enjoy the rest of the day, as everyone tells you how they love the gift you gave them...

Christmas Morning Egg Nog, part of our December blitz of recipes!

Christmas Morning Egg Nog
by the seat of my pants!

3 eggs
1/2 c sugar
2 t vanilla
1/8 t salt
1/4 t pumpkin pie spice
1 c half & half or whipping cream (for a richer drink)
4 c milk

Beat eggs with sugar until the sugar is starting to dissolve and the mixture is very creamy (3-5 minutes). 
Add the vanilla, salt, spice, and cream, continue beating until sugar is completely dissolved. 
Mix in milk, and transfer to a pitcher, store in the refrigerator until ready to serve. 

PS we always make a double batch...

I hope you find something new to enjoy, and happy holidays to you and yours!
