1 t vanilla extract
pinch of salt
1 cup sliced strawberries
nutmeg freshly ground

Method

-add sugar or splenda, vanilla and salt and wisk
-keep wisking and slowly pour in the scalded milk. Wisk well.
-divide strawberry slices into the 6 ramkins
-ladle the egg mixture into the ramkins and sprinkle with nutmeg.
-place ramkins in a 9"x13" baking pan, fill pan about 1/2" with very hot water

*I have also made this in a casserole dish. Place the dish in the 9"x13" pan with hot water and bake for about 1hr or until knife inserted close to centre comes out clean.

*you can also use bananas in place of the strawberries.
