Garnishes and Stir-ins (choose 1 or several)
Yield: 12 servings
For faster preparation heat milk until very warm before stirring milk into eggs and sugar.
Microwave: In 2-quart liquid measure or bowl, beat together eggs, sugar and salt, if desired, until thoroughly blended. Set aside. In 1-quart liquid measure or bowl, cook 2 cups of the milk on full power until bubbles form at edges, about 5 to 6 minutes. Stir into egg mixture. Cook on 50% power until mixture is thick enough to coat a metal spoon with a thin film and reaches at least 160 degrees F, about 5 to 6 minutes. Stir in remaining 2 cups milk and vanilla extract. Continue as above.
All microwave cooking times are based on a full power output of 600 to 700 watts. For a lower wattage oven allow more time.
