  • 2 c. milk
  • ¼ to ⅓ c. sugar (depends on how sweet you want it)
  • 2 eggs
  • pinch of salt
  • tsp. vanilla
  • ground nutmeg


  • 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.
  • Enjoy!


* Heating this just to a boil essentially "cooks" the egg enough that it isn't considered raw any longer.
** If you add all the milk at once, sometimes the egg will cook too much and you'll end up with little chunks of cooked egg in your custard, which obviously isn't so great. :)
