Egg Recipe #4

So I made another dessert with eggs and that is because "the man of the place" was begging for something sweet.  I have been trying really hard to keep sweets out of the house after having a overload at Christmas. I gave in and made him Baked Custard, seeing how he ate all the buttermilk pie by Tuesday.
I have never made just custard before, I've made peach custard pie. It was very easy, a lot easier than I thought.
Take only 5 ingredients.

3 beaten eggs
1 1/2 cups milk (2%)
1/3 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
    Ground nutmeg or cinnamon

Combine the eggs, milk, sugar, and vanilla. Beat till well combined but not foamy.

Place four 6-ounce custard cup or 1/2 pint jars in an 8x8x2-inch baking dish. Pour egg mixture into cups.
Sprinkle with nutmeg or cinnamon.if desired.

Pour boiling water into the baking dish around the custard cups to a depth of 1-inch

Bake in a 350 oven for 30 - 45 minutes. or till a knife inserted near the center comes out clean.

Serve warm or chilled. If desired, loosen edges of individual custards with a spatula or knife, slipping point of spatula down sides to let air in; invert onto dessert plate

Serves 4  (WW points plus 4)
