This 'made-from-scratch' eggnog recipe calls for heating the eggs and sugar, then adding milk, vanilla extract and nutmeg. You then heat the mixture until it thickens and chill it to make it into a dessert.
So frustrating!!! The first time I made this recipe i ended up with a pot of scrambled eggs. The second time, I cooked for ten minutes, it still had not thickened and was starting to scramble again! I will stick with the heavy cream method. - 06 Dec 2017 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
