    Custard is the world's best "comfort food". This is a recipe everyone LOVES and it's sooo easy!

    Ingredients:

    2 Cups Whole Milk
    1 Cup Sugar
    1 Stick Butter, softened
    4 Large Eggs (or 5 Mediums)
    1/2 Cup Bisquick
    2 tsp. Vanilla
    Ground Nutmeg

    Preheat oven to 350.

    Mix all ingredients except the nutmeg in a blender OR with an electric mixer for 2 minutes.

    Pour into a lightly greased 8" glass pan or a 2 Qt. baking dish.

    Let rest for 5 minutes.

    Sprinkle with nutmeg to taste.

    Bake for 30-40 minutes. The custard should still have a little "jiggle" to it when done.

    Serve warm (not hot) or cold!

    Made this yesterday as I had an over-load of Banty eggs and it's a delicious way to use up a dozen. [​IMG]

    Skip enjoyed it so much that he's asked me to make it again so he can take it to share with the gang at work and brag on me some more.[​IMG]

    Thanks for sharing this, sunnychooks! [​IMG]

    I think I have a similar recipe, but I'm going to try yours. The one I make rises up in the middle when baking, but then collapses into a wet mess when taken out of the oven. Does this one?

    Buff,

    Mine did the rising/collapsing thing too. Skip said it could be because I used too deep of a dish for the custard. I don't know...[​IMG]

    Mine also rises slightly, but when I take it out of the oven it falls immediately.

    My DH and I call this the "Dixie Chick Custard" because I use milk from my goat, Dixie, and eggs from my chickens! [​IMG] I'm so glad you enjoyed it!!!

    I was searching for recipes and came across this one...looks yummy, the secret to keep your custard from rising in the middle and collapsing is bake it is a water bath!

    Sounds a little like a egg custard tart.

    My sister just visited us from NY, and I made this recipe for Saturday brunch. IT WAS FANTASTIC!!!

    It didn't bubble up high and then collapse like my similar recipe did (maybe the half-cup of Bisquick prevented that), and the addition of the nutmeg on top added a special touch. I served it with sauteed apples and vanilla yogurt on top.

    I had the remainder of it for breakfast here at my office this morning, so I felt inspired to give you guys feedback on it. Try it yourself - it's great.
