Eggnog: One Of My Favourite Tipples At Christmas. How about you?
Every year at Christmas I treat myself to a bottle of Eggnog, it is one of my favourite drinks at this time of year.
So today I’m sharing a guest post on how to make your own yummy glasses full. Created by Masterchef winner Mat Follas accredited to the happy egg co.
Eggnog: One Of My Favourite Tipples At Christmas
6 happy eggs
60g caster sugar
1 tbsp vanilla extract
½ tsp grated nutmeg
150ml plain yogurt
You will need a cooking thermometer for this recipe.
Eggnog: One Of My Favourite Tipples At Christmas Method:
1.) Don’t be scared of raw eggs in eggnog; we gently cook them in this recipe.
2.) Place 4 happy eggs, 2 happy egg yolks, caster sugar and milk in a saucepan.
3.) Heat slowly whilst stirring continuously; bring the temperature up to 72°C then remove the saucepan from the heat and keep stirring until it has cooled to around 60°C, this will take about 5 minutes.
4.) Once it is below 60°C, pour the mixture through a sieve to capture any overcooked lumps.
5.) Add the vanilla extract and the nutmeg, stir and refrigerate the mixture.
6.) Once cool, add the plain yogurt and gently whisk together for a delicious and refreshing eggnog.
7.) You can add other flavours in place of the vanilla and nutmeg and/or use double cream in place of the yogurt.
8.) Adults might want to add some rum or bourbon too for a grown up drink.
Mat’s top tip: Use double cream instead of yogurt if you’re adding alcohol.
