    I love that as well. Weird. I hate how it sticks to my arteries, though.

    My mother used to make something similar called custard. It was delicious. She made it during the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays.

    I’d pour it on my cereal if I didn’t already have a weight problem.

    2 tablespoons vanilla extract
    1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
    2 cups heavy whipping cream
    Additional nutmeg, optional

    In a heavy saucepan, whisk together eggs, sugar and salt. Gradually add 4 cups milk; cook and stir over low heat until a thermometer reads 160°-170°, about 30-35 minutes. Do not allow to boil. Immediately transfer to a large bowl.

    Stir in vanilla, nutmeg and remaining milk. Place bowl in an ice-water bath, stirring until milk mixture is cool. (If mixture separates, process in a blender until smooth.) Refrigerate, covered, until cold, at least 3 hours.

    To serve, beat cream until soft peaks form. (It is not necessary to beat the cream. Depends on how thick you like your eggnog.) Whisk gently into cooled milk mixture. If desired, sprinkle with additional nutmeg before serving.

    Makes about 3 quarts.

    May be stored, covered, in the refrigerator for several days. Mason jars work well. Whisk before serving.

    My mom always put 3 whole cloves in the cooked mixture. I personally prefer it without cloves, but some folks like it better with them.
    Papaw loves it, not for me. I think he is going to give your recipe a try. And yes, I will give it a try. Does brandy make a difference in taste? Or is bourbon better?

    In eggnog, I prefer brandy. In this part of the country, I would venture bourbon is more popular.
