When I originally decided to join the #SundaySupper movement I thought that I would pick a theme maybe once a month to post along with the rest of the Sunday Supper crowd but every time a new theme shows up I can’t help myself I keep playing along.
I actually got off easy this week. When this theme was posted I already had the recipe made, photographed and almost ready to go up on my blog because I made this delicious Eggnog recipe for a Cookie Exchange I hosted.
It was so good I had to share the recipe.
Original Recipe Source: David Burnette Capital Eggnog as seen in the December 2012 issue.
When I saw this Eggnog recipe in the December issue of the Food Network Magazine I knew I had to make it for a couple of reasons .
- I love eggnog and everyone knows homemade is better then store bought.
- I have always wanted to make eggnog.
- The recipe is for an award winning eggnog.
- I am a food blogger and that’s how we role.
I tweeked the spices a bit. This recipe only called for nutmeg but I also like cinnamon in my eggnog so I added cinnamon and doubled the nutmeg.
I was not going to be mixing any liquor into my eggnog so it needed a little help in the spice department.
I read the Foodnetwork magazine article and a few website posts raving about Bartender David Burnette from the Capital Bar & Grill who is the creator of this recipe. He is also generous enough to share the recipe even after winning first place last year at the Historic Arkansas Museums Nog-off.
This years Nog-off is getting ready to start even as I type. I wish David good luck.
I will update this post on Monday after the winner is announced..
- 6 cups whole milk
- 2 cups heavy cream
- ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
- ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 12 large pasteurized egg yolks
- 2 cups sugar
- Heat the milk, heavy cream and nutmeg in a saucepan over medium heat, stirring occasionally until the milk is steaming, 5-10 minutes. Reduce heat and keep warm.
- Divide the egg yolks. Add yolks and sugar to a heavy sauce pan and whisk until smooth. Turn heat on low and continually whisk the yolks and sugar until pale in color. Turn heat on low and while whisking heat the yolk mixture to 160'F. This takes between 15 and 25 minutes. Remove from heat.
- Temper the custard by whisking in a half cup of the warm milk. Do this about three times. Now pour the warm milk into the pot of custard , whisking to combine.
- Remove the pot from the heat and set aside to cool for at least 30 minutes.
- Pour the cooled eggnog into a large pitcher, cover and refrigerate at least 4 hours. Chilling over night is best.
Now on to the party.
You are sure to find something to serve your holiday guest from the list of delish appetizers and holiday beverages at this weeks Sunday Supper party . So sit back and pour yourself a glass of eggnog and enjoy the party.
