6 large eggs, plus two yolks
1/2 cup, plus tablespoons sugar
4 cups milk
1 tbs vanilla
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/4 cup double cream, whipped
Whisk eggs, yolks, sugar together and then over low heat add milk slowly, whisking more.
Stir until mixture is 160 F and it thickens enough to coat back of a spoon.
This may take up to 45 mins.
Pour mixture through a sieve, and then add vanilla and nutmeg.
Pour into a glass jug and chill at least 4 hours before serving. When ready to serve folded whipped cream into the nog until combined.
