Breakfast Creme Brulee

This less sweet, egg-y brulee is a great source of protein in the morning!

2 cups whole milk
2 eggs
2 egg yolks
1/3 cup sugar
1 t vanilla

Preheat oven to 300 degrees. In a medium saucepan, bring milk to a simmer over medium-low heat. In a bowl, whisk eggs, yolks, sugar, vanilla, and nutmeg. Pour egg mixture into simmering milk, careful to add slowly while whisking. Pour mixture through a strainer into 4 oz. ramekins. Place ramekins in a baking pan and pour hot water into pan until it reaches halfway up the sides of the ramekins. Bake until custard is just set (middles will jiggle a little), about 35-40 minutes. Let cool in water bath for about 2 hours. Custard should be served room temperature, so if made the day before, custards should be removed from refrigerator prior to serving to allow to warm. Burn the surface with a bit of sugar if desired.
Serves 6.
