We had this custard one evening with a baked potato and salad, and last night what was left as a side dish with our roast chicken dinner. It reheated very well and was even sweeter than two nights before, I'm sure this will also go very well with roast beef. Can not get Vidalia onions over here in Holland and used sweet Spanish onions.Thank you Bergy!!
