Egg-Nog


My dad always made this for our holiday parties. Of course, it was spiked with some rum or whiskey.

4 cups whole milk
3/4 cup sugar
3 egg yolks
3/8 teaspoon salt
3 egg whites
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Grated fresh nutmeg

Bring milk to scalding; beat 1/2 cup sugar into egg yolks, add 1/4 teaspoon salt, and stir slowly into the milk. Cook in double boiler until mixture coats a silver spoon, stirring constantly. Place in a pan of cold water to cool.

Add 1/8 teaspoon salt to egg whites and beat until stiff; add remaining 1/4 cup sugar, mix well, and add to custard with vanilla. Mix thoroughly and chill 4 hours. Pile lightly in punch cups or beverage glasses. Sprinkle with freshly grated nutmeg and served.

Serves 6 - 8.
