So... my family has LOTS of traditions!!!  But one of our favorites it the drinking of Tom and Jerry's each Christmas Day! 

We had these warm, delicious and and frothy drinks every Christmas Day at my grandparent's house!

They taste similar to egg nog but much tastier and lighter!!!  And it is a warm drink! I was scouting around online the other day and actually found the recipe posted!  So apparently, we are not the only family that enjoys these tasty drinks!

I am going to share the recipe with all of you today and perhaps you can make this a part of your yearly Christmas celebration!!


12 eggs
1 pound powdered sugar
Nutmeg and Cinnamon
A roaster of boiling water
A pot of boiling water

Take big roaster pan and fill it with about 3 inches of water.  Place on stove top and keep water warm.  Keep mugs in hot water. 

Keep another pot of boiling water going!

Separate egg yolks from egg whites and place in different bowls
With mixer, beat eggs yolks until smooth
Add powdered sugar to egg yolks and beat until creamy yellow

Clean beaters

Beat egg whites until they form peaks
Fold egg whites into egg yolks and powdered sugar mixture

Ladle about one ladle full of egg mixture into a hot mug, fill to the top with boiling water!  Sprinkle with cinnamon and nutmeg!  

My family looks forward to these every year and my kids also love them!!!

They are very different... but so good!!!


Merry Christmas!

Love and Blessings

Absolutely great recipe for Tom and Jerry's. I suggest, do not make this ahead, but this is simply wonderful for holiday parties. Very yummy, and you can adjust the alcohol to taste. It even tastes good with no alcohol for any children or under 21 guests at your gathering. Thanks for sharing this recipe with us. I hope you have nice day!

During the festival its fun spending time with family and friends and trying new dishes and drinks. The egg nog is liked by many people and its healthier too. I hope you has a great time with your grandparents.


Wow. Dozen eggs is a way too much as for me.What effect it would gets?
