    twissis's Note:

    Per CULINARIA SPAIN, the Cantabria region in the northwest is home to the dairy industry of Spain & its mountain cuisine that is rich & hearty. Sweet treats abound here as well, esp custard varieties which are widely regarded as the national dessert of Spain. I grew up w/a spec fondness for my grandma's custard. I'm sure she never tried this unique variation, but I will. I admit it looks a bit labor-intensive, but I bet it's worth the extra effort. (See note Re yield & times) *Enjoy*

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Put milk, lemon zest, 4 tbsp sugar & vanilla bean in a saucepan & bring to a slow boil. Remove pan from heat source, allow milk mixture to cool & remove vanilla bean.
    2. 2
      Melt butter in a 2nd saucepand till foaming & add flour. Cook till the flour foams & turns pale golden, stirring continuously.
    3. 3
      Slowly add the warm milk, still stirring. Cook the sauce on low-heat for 5 min till it thickens.
    4. 4
      Remove pan from the heat source. Slowly add some of the mixture to the beaten egg yolks & whisk quickly to avoid cooking them. Then add the egg yolks to the milk/flour mixture & beat vigorously till well-combined.
    5. 5
      Butter (or spray w/PAM) a rectangular or square dish. Pour the custard into the dish & leave to set in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours. (See note in Step 7).
    6. 6
      Combine 2 tbsp sugar w/cinnamon & nutmeg & set aside.
    7. 7
      Cut the cold custard into triangles or squares (A square dish can be cut easily into 9 portions & a rectangular dish can be cut into 8 portions)
    8. 8
      Beat 2 eggs lightly & dip the pieces of custard in the beaten eggs, then in the breadcrumbs.
    9. 9
      Heat the oil in a lrg skillet or saucepan & fry the custard slices in batches till golden brown.
    10. 10
      Drain custard slices briefly on paper towels & arrange on a serving platter. Using a sml tea-strainer or other dusting container, sprinkle sugar/cinnamon/nutmeg mixture atop the custard slices. Serve lukewarm or cold as desired (Fresh fruit would provide color & be esp nice to serve w/this).
    11. 11
      NOTE: The # of servings was not given & depends largely on how you cut the custard, so I estimated the yield. Nearly all the time is cooking or chilling time, but I allowed 15 min for prep time. Times DO NOT include time for the milk mix to cool & custard to chill till cold, so plan ahead & try to forgive me if I'm a bit off w/my estimates. :-).
