Ingredients
<br>- 12 eggs
<br>- 1 quart milk
<br>- 1 cup white sugar
<br>- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
<br>- 1 pinch ground nutmeg
<br><p></p>Directions
<br>step 1: In an electric mixer, beat the eggs until mixed well.
<br>step 2: Transfer the eggs to a double boiler and stir in milk, sugar, vanilla and nutmeg. Cook over a medium heat for 30 minutes. Use a metal slotted spoon and constantly stir the bottom of the pan to prevent scorching.

Carefully gather the ends of the cheesecloth in your hands and pull them together until the cheese forms into a ball. Tie the cheesecloth tightly at the top of the ball. Tie the cheesecloth ends over a faucet or to the handle of a kitchen cabinet (place a bowl under to catch the whey dripping down) and let hang for about 3 hours.
<br>step 4: Untie the cleesecloth and wrap the cheesecloth ball  in plastic wrap before refrigerating. The cheese will keep for about a week. Slice and serve.
