    OK, So I haven't had any major cravings yet, until today! Now I NEED baked custard. Of course, I can't find a recipe when I need it. Anyone have a good one? Thanks in advance.

    Do you mean a sweet? Like a rice pudding or something?
    Or a pumpkin pie?
    I have a quiche ready to go in the oven.

    Wow, I don't think I've ever had baked custard. I know there's a guy down the street that sells the best ever frozen custard - the real stuff, not the fake crap.

    When I was pregnant, my biggest craving was Krystal burgers. Of course there isn't any Krystal burger places within a reasonable drive - let alone the state of Virginia. So I practically kissed a friend of mine who brought me back a 'sackful' from her trip to Tennessee... that cured my Krystal cravings for the rest of the pregnancy - the sackful was cold and didn't settle right.

    Good luck finding and solving that craving of yours! [​IMG]

    Like Flan without the caramel. It is a regular for holidays, but it is in a pie. I just want it baked with a little nutmeg on top. yum, yum. I know it is eggs, milk, and sugar and vanilla, I just don't know the amounts and I can't get ahold of my mom today. [​IMG] poor me. I guess I will have to wait until morning.

    I have never heard of a krystal burger. I haven't eaten fast food since before daughter #1 was born, 3 years ago. Just the thought turns my stomach. Pregnancy makes you love & hate the wierdest things.

    Quote:[​IMG] How could you not know about the deliciousness (is that a word?) that is the Krystal Burger?!

    Krystal burgers are like White Castle is to the North... and then there's Burger King (yuck [​IMG] )... they're trying their hand and mini burgers. And a lot of restaurants are coming out with their own minis that they call Sliders... funny thing is, that's what we called Krystal Burgers (when I lived in TN)... you eat them, they go down, they slide out. Ok, that was kind of gross and overly descriptive, but they are yummy treats! [​IMG]

    Thank you so much Cheri. I am going to make this right now so it will be ready to eat first thing in the morning. Good breakfast, huh?

    I wasn't too worried about the arm ad. I think that this custard will find other places on my body to settle.

    Sweets are my weekness right now. Mostly pudding, jello, and cadbury creme eggs.

    Thanks and I will let you know how it turns out.

    Easy smeasy..
    6 beaten eggs
    1/4 cup of sugar (or more if you like it sweeter)
    1 quart of milk
    pinch of salt

    Whir it with the blender or mixer or whisk...
    pour into a glass baking dish. Sprinkle with Nutmeg (or cinnamon if you like that better)

    Preheat the oven to 300f

    set the glass dish into a larger baking pan with enough warm water in it to come about 1/2 way up the glass pan, but not "boil over" from its pan.

    BAke at 300f until a knife comes out clean when inserted in the center-- usually about an hour.

    Its as close to a written "recipe" I have-- I just been making it the way My Grandma From SC showed me when I was about 14!!!
