What’s Cooking with Melissa?

Okay I have officially gone from pumpkin spice season to egg nog season. I’ve enjoyed egg nog in many recipes but my favorite is pudding. This week I’d like to share my recipe for Egg Nog Pudding.


Egg Nog Pudding

2 tbsp. cornstarch

1/2 tsp. cinnamon

dash of nutmeg (optional as most egg nog contains nutmeg but I like more!)

dash of salt

1/4 cup sugar

2 1/4 cups egg nog (I use store bought)

3 egg yolks

whipped topping (optional)


In a medium pot whisk together cornstarch, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt and sugar. Then whisk in egg nog and egg yolks. Turn stove on to medium and whisk continuously until thickened. This will take about 8 to 10 minutes. Once thickened enough to stick to the back of a spoon, pour into a bowl. Put a piece of plastic wrap over the bowl, making sure it lies on the pudding. I like to pat it down to the edges. This helps to ensure you won’t have a thick skim on top of the pudding. Refrigerate for at least 3 hours. Serve with whipped topping if using. Enjoy!
