I posted this in response to a request on the boards. The original recipe doesn't say how many servings, but I would guess 8, but it would depend upon the size of your custard cups.
- 1 quart eggnog
- 4 eggs
- Preheat oven to 350°.
- Beat eggs using an electric mixer.
- Gradually add eggnog while continuing to beat mixture.
- Pour mixture into buttered custard cups.
- Place custard cups in a pan of hot water about halfway up the side.
- Bake 30 minutes or until knife inserted in the custard comes out clean.
I made this recipe because I bought way too much egg nog for the holidays. Sorry to say my family did not like it - because my kids don't like egg nog and my husband doesn't care for pudding like things. I happen to like custard and thought it was very good and easy!! I sprinkled a bit of nutmeg on top for an extra touch.
Want to spice it up? I used the Pumpkin Pie Spice Eggnog and the "spice" flavor was all through the custard instead of sitting on the top.
I made two servings as a test drive for Christmas and DH ate them both as an after breakfast snack. This surprised me as the man doesn't normally like eggnog but he loves puddings and custards, so maybe that's the key! Anyway, this is true to it's name and is, indeed, easy. I mixed it up and put it in the oven to bake while I made breakfast and it was ready to come out by the time we had finished eating and had a cup of tea. From the one spoonful I got I can tell you that it tastes just like eggnog (duh!)and has a very nice consistency. DH enjoyed it straight from the baking cup but if I were to serve it for a holiday dinner I think I'd turn it out onto a plate with a pool of caramel sauce and sprinkle very lightly with nutmeg.
