By Mary Gill

Bread and Butter Custard
Serves:  6
Prep Time:  20 minutes
Cook Time:  40 minutes
Ease of Preparation:  Easy

Ingredients:
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

Directions:

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
