For those concerned about the egg substitute in this recipe. Egg substitutes ie Egg Beaters is pasturized so there are no problems with salmonella.

I'm going to have to make this one of these days. I wish I had seen this a few days ago. Unfortunately I don't have any rum extract at this point but one could use vanilla or any other flavor that you wanted to. Rum extract is not rum, it is just rum flavoring.

I agree with Ms. Denison. I grew up eating foods that had raw eggs in them and we drank raw milk. I don't ever remember getting sick from any of this. I would get raw milk again if I could find it.

Raw eggs are amazingly nutritious and should be added to your diet at least twice per week. Eggnogs made with stevia (no sugar or subs, please) are great also. Egg substitutes are over processed and are not naturally balanced in nutrients. So when you can say "low fat", what you will be consuming may not be all natural and it may contain hidden carbs. Food mfgrs are allowed to call "spices" substances that are not low carb and not a "spice" that is a leaf or herb as we think of the term spice. So beware.

If you can get raw milk, perfect! It is amazing in nutrition and avoids the problems associated with current dairly products (increased phlegm, digestive upset, etc.) Like breast milk for children, it is on the same level, and contrary to what mega dairy will tell you, it actually has a LOWER incidence of food borne disease because raw milk is a living entity with natural antiobiotic effects. But raw milk is a small farmer product because it has to be produced in small quantities and in a clean manner but can be done on any farm. Mega dairy requires large, expensive equipment and is done by large farma corps who lobby against it and control the FDA. If you get a chance sign a petition to get it back. Along with the introduction of pasteurized dairy came a number of childhood diseases not seen before, including rickets and other problems.

Other than that—eggnog is great for breakfast!
