Baked Custard

2 eggs (or 4 egg yolks)
⅓ c sugar
¼ t salt
2 c milk, scalded
½ t vanilla, if desired

Heat oven to 350°. Beat eggs, sugar and salt slightly to mix. Stir in scalded milk. Add vanilla. Pour into 6 custard cups or a 1½-qt baking dish and set in a pan of hot water (1″ deep). Sprinkle a little nutmeg over the tops. Bake 45-50 min, or just until a silver knife inserted 1″ from edge comes out clean (soft center sets as it stands). Immediately remove from oven. Serve cool or chilled in same cups on dessert plates or unmold and serve.
