Bread and Butter Custard
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 40 minutes
Ease of Preparation: Easy
4 to 5 thin slices of white bread (crusts removed)
2 tablespoons butter, room temperature
4 cups whole milk
6 large eggs
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
Nutmeg & cinnamon to dust on top of custard
Pre heat oven to 325 degrees
Butter each piece of bread and place butter side up in a single layer in a 9 x 13 baking dish. In a medium sauce pan, scald milk over medium heat until bubbles appear. In a large mixing bowl slightly beat eggs. Stir in sugar and vanilla and whisk. Very slowly whisk in hot milk. Pour over bread in baking dish. Sprinkle with nutmeg and cinnamon. Place baking dish in the center of a pan of hot water as high as the baking dish. Bake for 40 minutes or until knife comes our clean.
Notes from Paula’s Test Kitchen: Recipe works best with whole milk, preventing custard from being watery. Serve warm or cold
Paula, I love watching you and your family. I miss seeing your show, I watched you everyday. My son lives in Charleston S.C. He took me to the Lady & Sons to eat. Oh my goodness! People are always telling me that I look just like the cooking lady Paula Deen. I always tell them that you are my hero. May God Bless You

Add a few spoonfuls of parmesan cheese to the flour and cornmeal breading and it kicks the tomatoes up another notch. Bev

I just bought Paula's Peach Salad Dressing and wondered if anyone has a good recipe that they use it in?
