Homemade EggNog

Do you love eggnog? Or are you not a fan? Let us know in the comments below. I know most people either love eggnog or don’t. We happen to love it. I was so glad to find this recipe for Homemade Eggnog. Even though I love Eggnog store bought ones are sometimes too too sweet to my liking.

This eggnog is very creamy with just enough sweetness. This recipe calls for pasteurized eggs which I found next to the organic eggs in my grocery store. So check there for pasteurized eggs. Enjoy.
