Goose Egg Custard Recipe
Shaye so graciously allowed me to post my favorite recipe from her new cookbook here on Our Small Hours today! I took one look at the goose egg custard recipe and knew that it was the one. I want to share this decadent breakfast (or is it dessert?) recipe with the world because it’s so simple yet so incredibly nourishing. (And, for those us who are always on the lookout for grain-free dishes, it fits the bill.)
So, here it is . . . a lovely goose egg custard recipe!
Goose Egg Custard
2 goose eggs
4 cups whole milk (no one will judge if you use cream, man)
½ cup rapadura, honey, or maple syrup
Teeny pinch sea salt
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Place a large baking sheet in the oven and add hot water into the baking sheet until it is 1″ deep.
Scald the milk by heating it in a saucepan on the stove until just simmering. Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly. Meanwhile, combine the eggs, rapadura, sea salt, and vanilla extract together in a bowl. Whisk to combine.
Gently drizzle the scalded milk into the egg mixture slowly, slooowwwwllly, SLOWWWLWLLLYYY!!! Add too quickly and you’ll end up with a bunch of scrambled goose eggs. Instead, add in a few tablespoons of the milk at a time, all the while stirring the mixture with a whisk. Keeping drizzling the milk in, stirring constantly, until all the milk is added. Pour the mixture into ramekins or your baking dish of choice. Place the ramekins into the hot water filled baking sheet in the oven. Bake for 40-50 minutes or until just set, slightly jiggly, and slightly browned on top.
Carefully remove the ramekins from the oven. Eat hot, warm, or cold. No matter what way you eat it, it’s delicious! Trust me. I’ve eaten enough to be an expert.
