Egg Custard

ImageIngredients

4 cups milk {I used 2%}
6 large eggs
2/3 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
pinch of ground nutmeg

Directions

Preheat oven to 325 degrees

Heat the milk in a large saucepan until bubbles form around the edges. Toss the eggs, sugar, and salt in a blender and give it a few pulses until nice and smooth.

Once the milk is hot, remove it from the stove top. Slowly add the milk into the eggs while whisking vigorously.

Once the milk and eggs are combined, stir in the vanilla.

Pour the custard mixture into a 9×13 casserole dish {or small custard cups} and sprinkle with freshly grated nutmeg.  Place the casserole dish in a large roasting pan and fill the pan with enough water to reach about 1 inch from the top of the casserole dish.

Bake for about 45 minutes or until the custard has just set. Be careful not to over cook.

Cool before serving.
