While I agree with Heather #6 that this was a bit on the "fluffy breakfast eggy" side, I also agree with Angi11002 that this is a wonderful break from the standard "eggs and cheese for breakfast". The taste is slightly sweet like a true custard, and, while the taste is a bit "eggy", I will be making this again... and again... and again. I sprinkled cinnamon and a bit of erythritol on top for a "cinnamon-sugar" topping. Thanks, Momma Loon! Also, I'd like to mention that this is very filling. I thought I might want to make a second batch, but have found this fills me up and has left me very satisfied.
This is a wonderful recipe. I am the only one in the family that loves egg custard so finding a one serving recipe was great. Before baking I sprinkled the top with Sugar Twins' Brown Sugar. It's the closest thing to Creme Brule.
I enjoyed this. It is my new go to quick & easy dessert. In my opinion, after the eggs are beaten well, time should be taken to thoroughly beat in the cream, sugar & flavoring. Beating all well will lead to this dish having more of a custard consistency versus just being another scrambled egg dish.
