Recipe Wednesday! Celebrate with this EASY EGGNOG!

If you see a fat man …
Who’s jolly and cute,
wearing a beard
and a red flannel suit,
and if he is chuckling
and laughing away,
while flying around
in a miniature sleigh
with eight tiny reindeer
to pull him along,
then lets face it…
Your eggnog’s too strong!!!
(hee hee)

Set up a punch bowl full of this CREAMY goodness, and surround it with your favorite/festive holiday MUGS! We set up labelled SHAKERS of cocoa powder, cinnamon and nutmeg - a great way to use/display your Christmas salt shakers!



4 eggs
1/4 cup sugar
1 quart milk, chilled
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp salt


Beat three whole eggs and 1 yolk until very thick and light in color. Add 1 2/3 tablespoons sugar, beating in thoroughly. Stir in milk, vanilla, and salt and pour the mixture into glasses.
Beat remaining egg white until almost stiff, add remaining sugar and beat until peaks appear. Top each glass of eggnog with a spoonful of meringue, sprinkle with nutmeg and serve immediately.

*Refrigerate the eggnog right away, DON'T let it sit out!

*You can spike it with rum or brandy, but we like to use vanilla vodka!
Just add 2 oz. spirits to each 8 oz. glass. Just fab to warm you up after
shopping or wrapping!
