Yellow, sweet custard with a crispy, burnt sugar topping. The custard is so silky
on your tongue and inside your mouth. Taste buds awaken with delight. The top layer of
carmelized sugar is delicately crunchy. It’s a dessert for something special, a birthday, an anniversary, a celebration. I don’t make these, I must admit, so for me, it’s a treat at a restaurant to indulge in a dessert fantasy, taking tiny bites with a shining, silver spoon.
Cheese AND Jelly or Jam Makes MY Heart Grow Fonder Scrambled eggs, kiwi, and toast! My favorite way to cook eggs is to scramble them (not too loosely and not so that they are overdone) with cheese. I use Pam (butter flavored cooking spray) and if I really want to watch my cholesterol I will use just one egg yolk and two egg whites. However, I admit, I love the texture of the eggs when I add cheese. I have been known to add a slice of Kraft American cheese (don’t judge me) or Jarlsberg or Cheddar. I’ve also been known to have toast with butter and grape jelly to accompany this delicacy too or just add the jam or jelly with the eggs. Oh Mo, stop complaining, try it first. Sigh, yes, Mo is my dear friend but she does not like the fact that I have put grape jelly on pizza. Dear friends, don’t be hating, be flexible, besides, I only add the jelly if the pizza is dry. Adding grape jelly or any type of jam to scrambled eggs is delicious ANYTIME. You are welcome.
Just seeing this dessert listed on a menu makes me drool with excitement. The crispy glazed sugar-burned topping, the warm, sweet yellow custard that lies beneath the surface. Decadence in every tiny spoonful, today’s choice is brought to you by my taste buds: Creme Brulee.
