H E A R T H & H O M E Simply Eggscellent! Eggs: the perfect pre-packaged food Creamy Caramel Flan E by Heather Berry page design by Megan Schibi ggs are quite possibly one of the best creations — a delicious food option that comes pre-packaged, waiting to see what you’ll make of it. The egg’s fine, porcelain-like housing holds one of the most nutritious protein choices, containing varying amounts of 13 vitamins and minerals. One large egg provides 15 percent of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Recommended Daily Allowance of protein and equals 1 ounce of lean meat, fish or poultry. Worried about cholesterol? If your cholesterol is high, follow your doctor’s dietary advice. Egg yolks are usually restricted, but it’s rarely necessary to avoid them completely. Egg whites can be used freely, however, making many recipes as tasty as ever. Breaking into an egg is the start to numerous dishes that have gone into frying pans, baking dishes and soup kettles for hundreds of years. So give some of these egg recipes a try — eggs truly are an incredible, edible thing. 32 Creamy Caramel Flan 1-1/2 cups sugar 6 large eggs 1 14-ounce can sweetened condensed milk 2 13-ounce cans evaporated milk 1 teaspoon vanilla Preheat oven to 325 degrees. You will need 6 ramekins and a large glass or ceramic pan to set them in while they bake. Pour 1 cup of sugar into a saucepan over medium heat. Constantly stir sugar until it browns and becomes caramel. Quickly pour 2 to 3 tablespoons of caramel in each ramekin, tilting it to swirl around the sides. Reheat caramel if it starts to harden. With a whisk, blend the eggs together. Add in the two types of milk, then slowly add the remaining sugar and vanilla and blend well. Pour mixture into ramekins and place in the baking dish. Fill pan with about 1-1/2 inches of hot water. Bake for 45 minutes. When a knife inserted just to the side of the center comes out clean, it’s done. Remove, cool and refrigerate for 1 hour. Invert onto a small plate and serve. WWW.RURALMISSOURI.COOP http://WWW.RURALMISSOURI.COOP
