Need an Egg Nog Recipe without raw eggs

I need a recipe for egg nog that does not contain raw eggs. I actually have an intolerance to them, but would like to make an egg-noggish drink for the holidays - both an alcoholic version and a non-alcoholic version. Anyone have any ideas?

  1. Hot Buttered Rum for a crowd

    Mix one pound soft butter with 1 pound each brown sugar and powdered sugar and 1 tsp each salt, cinnamon, allspice and ground nutmeg. Whip together with a mixer and fold in well 2 qts of soft premium quality vanilla ice cream. Store in the fridge in attractive covered bowl or serving piece till needed.

    Heat hot water in a kettle and to one 8 oz mug add: a 2 Tbl scoop of the mix, a jigger of Rum, and fill with drinkably hot (no scalded tongues, please) water. Stir with a mini whisk to melt and blend mix. Adjust proportions to suit taste. hic.

    1. Use your favorite eggnog recipe that calls for raw eggs but use these eggs to make it:
      Many Whole Foods stores stock them, or call your favorite super market and ask if they have them.

      1. Eggnog has: eggs, milk/cream, sugar, booze, spices. I think you should be able to adapt any recipe by tempering the eggs, then gently heating it again, taking it off the heat before it gets thick. Then add the brandy and rum after it is cooled.

        1. Egg nog is my favor drink. Unfortunately, I don't really know how to make a good one.

          1. I was just looking at this recipe earlier today - Alton Brown has a "cooked" version of egg nog (I'm sure you can omit the whipped egg whites if you want...): http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/al...

              I made that recipe last year -- YUM. We would have licked the bowl if we could have.

                I think this is the one I am using -- thanks!! Love Alton Brown.

            2. You mention that you have an intolerance to eggs, so I'm assuming you want to eliminate the eggs, not just sterilize them.

              Here is a nice recipe for eggless eggnog. It uses sweetened condensed milk to substitute for some of the thickness that eggs provide. http://www.squidoo.com/eggnog-recipe

                Interesting -- but no, it is actually just raw/undercooked eggs that I have a problem with. I didn't know it was possbile either until it happened to me! Something about cooking changes the protein structure of the egg and makes it fine for me to eat.

                  Sounds to me like you got a contaminated batch of raw eggs. The main thing that cooking would do to an egg to make it more easy for you to tolerate them is that it kills any Salmonella or Campylobacter in them. Otherwise, anything you could have an allergic reaction to is still in there. See an allergy doctor for more help.

                  However, if it's a texture issue, raw egg eggnogs all beat the egg yolks to use them to emulsify the cream and alcohol, so you don't notice the texture, and they often whip the egg whites into a foam. Anyway, it's not like eating a raw egg (which I find unpleasant), but more like drinking a thousand calorie, highly alcoholic milk shake.
