Great Grannies Egg Custard

Egg custard is my father’s favorite sweet treats. I remember as a kid having it served with dinner at least once a week.

It’s one of those comfort foods that I’m finally able to enjoy again- as my first trimester refrained me from eating much, especially when it came to eggs.

This dessert is just sweet enough for a light dessert and perfect alongside just about any dish! The recipe comes from my Great Grandma Garrison.

Grannies Egg Custard
3 eggs, beaten
1/3 cup sugar (sprinkle very slowly)
Pinch of salt
1 ½ cups milk
½ tsp. vanilla
Sprinkle nutmeg on top

Bake at 325 degrees in a glass dish (a 9x9 works well). Place glass baking dish in a pan of water (hot water bath) for 20 minutes.

Granny's Egg Custard sounds great...How would the directions change if baking in individual custard cups?
