I used this recipe because I had the condensed milk available, and not the evaporated. Even though I was negligent and left it to cook the first couple of minutes without constant stirring it still tasted great. There is a little bit of cooked yolk flecks here and there, but doesnt change the flavor. JUst the presentation. So try this easy recipe, but have all your ingredients ready (like all good cooks should).

I live in south eastern Louisiana where we have the best food in the world! I've always loved to cook ever since I was a little girl and my grandmothers, Nannie and Maw Maw T, were very influential to me. I enjoy making dishes from scratch and using old fashioned recipes - it's always worth the effort. My husband & I love to barbecue several times a week since we love to be outdoors. I love to entertain friends and family on weekends.
