What would Christmas be without egg nog?
Give it a kick by adding 8 tbsp of rum if youd like.


Ingredients

    6 eggs
    1/4 cup sugar (or substitute)
    1/4 teaspoon salt (optional)
    1 quart low-fat milk
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions

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.

Makes 12 (1/3 cup) servings.
