Ingredients
  • 3 eggs
  • 1-1/2 cups of milk
  • 1 cup of cream-style cottage cheese 4% fat
  • 1/2 cup of sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla
  • 1/8 teaspoon of salt
  • ground nutmeg for sprinkling
  • Fruit preserves or jam optional
Instructions
  1. Combine the eggs, milk, cottage cheese, sugar, vanilla, and salt in a large mixing bowl.  Beat with your electric mixer until well blended.  Pour this mixture into six-custard cups (about 6-ounce size).  Sprinkle each filled cup with a little ground nutmeg.
  2. Place your filled cups in a shallow baking pan in your oven.  Before baking, you fill hot water around the cups to about an inch deep.
  3. Bake at 350-degrees for about 30-35 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
  4. Serve this hot or cold, with or without a teaspoon of your favorite fruit preserves, such as cherry that is delicious.
