Rinse the eggshells
If you’re using eggs, rinse the shells thoroughly before breaking them.
Beat the eggs
Beat the eggs or egg substitute until foamy.
Add sugar and salt
Beat in the sugar and salt until the nog is thick. It will be a pale yellow color.

Stir in the milk, half-and-half, or cream, along with the vanilla, and chill for a few hours.
Pour into glasses and sprinkle on some nutmeg. There should be enough to serve six to ten people.

To use real eggs without the worry, stir half the milk with the beaten eggs and sugar over low heat, stirring constantly, until it reaches a consistency that coats a spoon. Then stir in the remaining milk and chill overnight.
