I was inspired to start this thread when I read from Nicole herself that her customary breakfast protein is one hard boiled egg and she said it was "nasty." So welcome back Nicole. Here is a recipe for you Nicole and anyone else that wants a change from their usual breakfast protein. Note: It makes 2 servings and can be made ahead of time. It is good warm or cold.

Baked Custard

Servings 2 each 1/2 Protein

2 eggs
1/2 cup skim milk
1TB sugar or sugar substitute
2 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp low sodium salt
2 TB orange or lemon zest (optional)
Nutmeg and cinnamon for garnish

Break eggs into small mixing bowl and beat slightly. Add milk, sugar or substitute, vanilla, zest and salt and beat well. Pour into 4oz damp custard cups and sprinkle with cinnamon and nutmeg. Bake in 350% oven in a shallow pan of water for 20-30 minutes. When custard is set, a knife inserted in the center will come out clean.

That can even work as a snack.

I wonder if they'll freeze well.

I just caught my mistake and edited it to show each serving is 1/2 P.

Sounds great Lynn!

I'm all about 1/2 serving of reduced fat PB mixed in with my chocolate lite shake. I make it in my bella cucina...YUM!

Thanks Lynn, this sounds wonderful! :cp: Sounds delicious and only 1/2 protein too. Thank you for sharing - do you have any other gems like this up your sleeve?!

what if I don't own custard cups? could this be done in the microwave somehow?

Thanks Lynn - I love custard! How much milk do you use, and wouldn't be a dairy also?

10-15-2007, 12:08 PM
Yes, there is milk just 1/4 cup skim milk.
Thanks for catching another mistake with this recipe.
I did not count milk since it is a small amount. If you feel the need, you can reduce the size of a serving of one of your dairys for the day.

Thanks Lynn! This sounds awesome, I'll be trying it soon! I'm so tired of hard-boiled eggs, and scrambled and poached aren't far behind... ;)
