Homemade 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 sugar


  1. In a medium pot over medium-high heat, combine the milk, heavy cream, nutmeg, and a pinch of kosher salt until you see small bubbles rising to the surface, stirring occasionally to avoid burning.
  2. Meanwhile, in your stand mixer or a bowl with an electric hand mixer, beat egg yolks and sugar together until the 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 avoid eggs from cooking. Return mixture to pot and cook until the 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.

Eggnog Whipped Cream

  • 2/3 c heavy cream
  • 2/3 c homemade eggnog
  • 2 Tbsp powdered sugar
  • sprinkle of nutmeg to taste
  1. Make sure heavy cream and eggnog are well chilled before whipping. Place all ingredients in bowl of stand mixer and beat on high (start on a lower speed to avoid splatter) until desired whipped cream consistency is reached.

Hot Chocolate Eggnog

  • 3 c homemade eggnog
  • 1 c whole milk
  • 1 c finely chopped dark chocolate
  • 3 Tbsp sugar
  • pinch kosher salt
  1. Place homemade eggnog, whole milk, dark chocolate, sugar, and a pinch of kosher salt in a medium pot over medium heat. Warm mixture, stirring occasionally, until chocolate is fully melted. Divide among four glasses and top with eggnog whipped cream and a sprinkle of nutmeg.

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.
