In a large heavy saucepan, combine the eggs, sugar, 1 cup milk and 1 cup cream. Cook and stir over medium heat for about 25 minutes or until a thermometer reads 160° or is thick enough to coat the back of a metal spoon.
Pour into a large bowl; stir in nutmeg and the remaining milk and cream. Place bowl in an ice-water bath; stir frequently until mixture is cool. Cover and refrigerate for at least 3 hours before serving.
