This creamy custard is about as simply delicious as it gets. Using evaporated milk helps the custard stabilize and not curdle.
4 servings (serving size: 1 custard)

1 (12-ounce) can evaporated low-fat milk
1/2 cup 1% low-fat milk
1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste
1 large egg, lightly beaten
2 large egg yolks
1/3 cup sugar


1. Combine milks in a medium saucepan. Bring to a simmer over medium heat, about 4 minutes. Remove from heat; add vanilla bean paste, stirring with a whisk until blended.

2. Combine egg, egg yolks, and sugar in a medium bowl, stirring with a whisk until blended. Gradually add hot milk, stirring vigorously with a whisk. Pour egg mixture through a sieve into a bowl.

3. Place 4 metal canning jar bands in bottom of a 6-quart oval electric slow cooker. Ladle egg mixture evenly into 4 (8-ounce) ramekins. Cover ramekins with foil. Set 1 ramekin on each band, making sure ramekins do not touch each other or sides of slow cooker. Carefully pour hot water into slow cooker to depth of 1 inch up sides of ramekins.

4. Cover and cook on HIGH for 1 hour and 45 minutes or until a knife inserted in center of custards comes out clean. Remove ramekins from slow cooker, and cool on a wire rack. Serve warm or chilled.
