In a bowl beat the egg yolks with the 1/2 cup of sugar until thick. In another bowl beat the egg whites with 1/4 cup of sugar until thick. In a third bowl beat the cream until thick. Add the cream to the yolk, fold in the egg whites, and add the milk, Bourbon, Vanilla, and a pinch of nutmeg if desired. Chill in freezer before serving.
Serve Eggnog in a large punch bowl.
I have made this eggnog recipe exclusively since I saw Paula make this on her show about 10 years ago. It is FABULOUS! But, don't count the calories...it's once a year! I would never make eggnog any other way.
P. S. It's ludicrous to rate a recipe low when you haven't made it because of the alcohol. Cooking is all about customizing food to your likes but you have to be a good enough cook to know that you can just leave out the alcohol without someone specifically telling you that you can! Don't rate recipes you haven't tried!
Hi Frances, thanks for your comment! You can just leave out the bourbon for this recipe. If the eggnog seems a little thick, just add more milk. Happy cooking!
How would this be made without the alcohol? I'd rate it higher if there was a non-alcohol version or adaptation included.
