What I'm eating today:

Sweet Potato Custard
Valerie style

2 medium sweet potatoes
2 eggs
1 cup 2% milk
1/4 cup heavy cream
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 tablespoon brown sugar
pinch of salt
fresh ground pepper to taste(I like pink peppercorns)
dash of cinnamon
maple syrup

Bake potatoes @ 400 degrees for about an hour. Let cool slightly and remove skin. Mash potatoes in a medium bowl and set aside.
Whisk together eggs, milk, cream, nutmeg, sugar, salt, and pepper, and cinnamon in a meduim. Whisk milk mixture into potatoes. Puree mixture in blender or food processor till it is very smooth and pour into ramekins or small casserole dish. Bake @ 300 degrees for about 30 mins... it might wiggle slightly in the middle when you take it out.
Let cool slightly, and serve warm or room temp with pure maple syrup drizzled over the top...
Yum. my. ness. Enjoy! I did.
