Quick & Delicious Eggnog Recipes from the BakeSpace.com community:
“This recipe is a lot lighter than most store bought eggnogs.”
2 eggs, room temperature
4 T. sugar
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract (my alteration)
1/4 tsp. nutmeg, plus more for garnishing
2 c. low fat milk
2 oz. brandy (optional
In a large bowl, whisk together eggs and sugar until light in color and sugar is dissolved. Whisk in vanilla, nutmeg, milk and brandy, if using. Strain into a small pitcher and chill. Pour into glasses and sprinkle with additional nutmeg.
“Hands down, the BEST eggnog you’ll ever taste. My husband thought up the concoction and I can’t stop drinking it … probably because you cannot taste the alcohol in it at all!” – Ali
Your favorite brand of eggnog
Bailey’s Irish Cream Caramel Flavored Liqueur
In a small glass, pour eggnog 3/4 of the way up. Add Bailey’s Caramel flavored Irish Cream and stir. Enjoy! You can also thin this out with milk if eggnog is too thick for you.
