1/4 to 1/3 c. sugar (depends on how sweet you want it)
pinch of salt
1/8 tsp. vanilla
Put milk and sugar in small pan and heat just until it starts to simmer and come to a boil.*
In the meantime, blend eggs, salt and vanilla.
Once milk starts to bubble, remove from heat and add a small amount to egg mixture.** Blend immediately.
Add rest of milk and blend well.
Pour into two mugs and sprinkle with nutmeg.
* Heating the milk to just boiling makes makes it hot enough to kill any bacteria that would be in the eggs.
** If you pour it in all at once, it tends to cook the egg and you'll end up with little egg chunks in your Warm Custard- not good!
Other serving suggestions:
- Reader Kayla said she used maple syrup and maple flavoring for a bit of a flavor change up. I tried the maple flavor (just a few drops) and it was really good!
- Reader Wendy said she used almond milk and stevia for an equally delicious drink!
