The Freshman Cook: Eggnog Creme Brulee/#FoodieExtravaganza

Please Rate this Recipe

When I learned that eggnog was the ingredient to use this month for #FoodieExtravanza I was so excited! I had been wanting to make Eggnog Creme Brulee for a while now, and now that I have, I can’t believe I waited this long. It is rich, creamy, and has an incredible flavor!¬†

It will make the perfect ending for your Christmas dinner! 

(recipe from Brian Jones)

2 cups Eggnog

4 Egg Yolks

1/4 cup White Sugar

3 ounces Mascarpone Cheese, softened

1 dash Ground Nutmeg

1 dash Ground Cinnamon

1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Set up your ramekins in a shallow baking dish.
Fill the dish with water half way up.
Pour your eggnog into a pan on medium heat.
Stir a couple times until the eggnog simmers, about 10 minutes. 
Place the egg yolks and sugar in to a mixing bowl. 
Beat until light colored and frothy. 
Add the mascarpone …….

and stir until smooth.

Temper your eggs by whisking a 1/4 cup of the
 hot eggnog mixture into the eggs. Add the eggnog  mixture a little at a time, whisking  after each addition.

Pour your mix through a fine sieve to remove any egg.
Stir in the nutmeg, cinnamon, and vanilla.
Divide the mix evenly into the ramekins. Bake until the custard has set, 30-40 minutes.
The center should wiggle, but not slosh.
Let cool completely.
Refrigerate until ready to serve.

When you are ready to enjoy your
 Eggnog Creme Brulee, sprinkle the tops with
white granulated sugar and use a kitchen torch
 to carmelize the sugar.
