Eggnog Ingredients


  • 2 c whole milk
  • 1 c heavy cream
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • pinch kosher salt
  • 4 Davidson's Safest Choice® pasteurized egg yolk(s)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/3 c granulated sugar


  1. In medium pot over medium-high heat, combine milk, heavy cream, nutmeg, and kosher salt until small bubbles rise to the surface; stir occasionally.
  2. Beat egg yolks and sugar together until yolks lighten in color and sugar is completely dissolved.
  3. Remove milk mixture from heat and very slowly pour it into the egg yolks, whisking constantly to keep eggs from cooking. Return mixture to pot and cook until mixture reaches 160°F. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla. Pour into mixing bowl and let cool completely. If serving later, set in refrigerator to chill, up to a few days.

Pasteurized equals peace of mind

Davidson's Safest Choice® pasteurized eggs taste great and are safe for all your favorite egg dishes! Davidson's gentle water bath pasteurization reduces the risk of Salmonella in eggs without changing the nutrition or flavor. In fact, Davidson's pasteurized eggs have earned the Seal of Approval for exceptional flavor and culinary performance from the American Culinary Federation (ACF).

The Raw Egg Risk

Davidson's 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.
