  1. In large saucepan, beat together eggs, sugar and salt (if desired); stir in 2 cups of the milk. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until mixture is thick enough to coat a metal spoon with a thin film and reaches at least 160 degrees F (70 degrees C). Remove pan from heat.
  2. Stir remaining 2 cups milk and vanilla extract into the mixture. Cover and refrigerate until thoroughly chilled; several hours or overnight. Just before serving, pour the egg nog into a bowl or pitcher.

This was an easy way to have homemade egg nog for the holidays without worrying about uncooked eggs. I added some cinnamon and nutmeg to mine when cooking, it really gave it the "old fashioned"...

I think I did something wrong...at about 100 degrees F the eggs started to coagulate and I threw out the whole batch! What did I do wrong?!

The first time I made this it was pretty bland. I tried it a second time using half and half instead of milk. It was much better. It had much more "body" to it. Also added nutmeg during the cook...

Too much work. For all of this trouble, and the chances of dying from not heating the eggs enough, it simply isn't worth the trouble. I'm not saying you will die, I tried it, and lived to talk...

YUCK! Unless you like drinking "egg flavored milk", skip this one. 'Cause that's what it tasted like, not like egg nog at all. BLECH!

The overall taste and texture of this recipe was great. it only needed a few extra pick me ups.

I added a little bit more rum and vanilla and my party guests loved it!

This is a perfect respie for all thoughs out there scared of salmanila but it is lacking rum. all egg nog, other than the one for kids, needs that little kick.
