Tonight we had "Tom and Jerry's" made from scratch following the recipe I remember my Mom whipping together when we had Christmas Company. Warning: rich, potent and powerful.
2 eggs beat until frothy
add 3/4 cup sugar and beat on high until the mixture is light yellow and pretty thick, like thick pancake batter.
Bring 2 cups of milk to a bubbling, frothy almost-boil. Turn off the burner.
Spoon some of the batter into a mug. Pour in the hot milk. Add a jigger of good brandy. Grate nutmeg on top.
Because I have had tow (2) of these, there are no pictures.
