The Classic Eggnog recipe is outstanding. I made this recipe for family and friends and it was definitely something that will become a tradition in our household. Everything was just right--right down to the consistency which is often an issue for my husband. This recipe made a great, creamy eggnog that had tons of flavor but was not too sweet.

Thanks!

This is better than most recipes that call for an entire pound of sugar. Not too sweet but thick and rich. Love the light egg nog version too! But nothing beats the "fully leaded" classic!

Pasteurized equals peace of mind

The Safest Choice™ patented, all natural, award-winning egg pasteurization process eliminates the risk of Salmonella in eggs before the eggs even enter your kitchen. Safest Choice™ Pasteurized Eggs are perfect for: sunny side up eggs, poached eggs, soft scrambled eggs, omelets, Tiramisù, Caesar salad dressing, Hollandaise sauce, mousse, homemade mayonnaise, homemade ice cream…and licking the spoon when you bake.

SafeEggs

The Raw Egg Risk

Safest Choice™ Eggs aren't just good for sunny side up or poached eggs. Consider all the recipes that feature raw eggs, like eggnog, Caesar salad dressing, raw cookie dough, custard and more. Take homemade ice cream, for example. Over a four-year period, more than 500 illnesses in the US were traced to Salmonella bacteria in homemade ice cream, according to the CDC. The ingredient at fault? Raw or undercooked eggs.
