OVERVIEW: Clock IconPrep: 5 min. | Cook: 2 min. Fork Icon 6 Servings


  • 3 cups Meadow Gold™ 1% low-fat milk, divided

  1. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, heat 2-1/2 cups milk until hot.
  2. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, whisk eggs, sugar, and cornstarch until smooth. Remove 1 cup of hot milk and whisk slowly into egg mixture. Pour this back into pan and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until eggnog begins to thicken, stirring constantly.
  3. Remove from heat, stir in remaining 1/2 cup milk and the vanilla. Pour into a glass container, let cool 20 minutes, and then refrigerate until chilled. When ready to serve, garnish with a sprinkle of cinnamon or to get fancy, wet the rims of your glasses and then dip them in some ground cinnamon as we did here.
