DIRECTIONS

  • Melt butter (or margarine) in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add apple slices and saute for 1 minute.
  • Reduce heat to medium-low, cover and cook 1 minute longer.
  • Reduce heat to low, uncover and let apples cook until light brown (3-5 minutes). Set aside.
  • Preheat oven to 325-degrees F.
  • Butter 6 custard cups (or butter a 1 1/2 quart casserole dish).
  • In a bowl, whisk eggs until thick. Add sugar and salt and beat well.
  • Blend in milk (or half and half) and vanilla.
  • Pour custard into prepared custard cups.
  • Set custard cups into large shallow baking pan.
  • Add enough boiling water to pan so water comes up halfway up sides of cups.
  • Bake for 1 hour or until a knife inserted in center of custard comes clean. (If using the casserole dish bake for 1 1/2 hours).
  • Remove cups from water and let cool to room temperature.
  • Top each custard with 4 (reserved) overlapping apple slices.
  • Refrigerate until cold or overnight.
  • Sprinkle with nutmeg before serving.
