Shirley Holt Oliver Eggnog
Here's my mom's recipe:
(all ingredients should be cold!)
1 gallon of whole milk (hey, it's Christmas!)
6 (or more) pasteurized eggs
3 (or more) cups of sugar
3 T good vanilla
Central Dairy vanilla or egg nog ice cream, semi softened
freshly grated nutmeg
Beat the eggs until frothy. Add in sugar, one cup at a time. Slowly pour in milk and beat until well combined. Taste. Add more eggs and sugar until it meets this year's taste buds. Add 3 T of good vanilla. Taste. Add more if needed.
Pour into a punch bowl. Add round scoops of ice all around the punch bowl. Grated nutmeg on top of egg nog. Beat off little kids and get the first cup.
