Instructions:

  1. Heat the oven to 350 F. Place four 6-ounce or six 4-ounce custard cups or ramekins in a 9-by-13-by-2-inch baking pan or a similar large baking dish which will accommodate the ramekins.
  2. Heat the milk in a saucepan until hot, about 120 F.
  3. In a mixing bowl, whisk the eggs with the sugar, vanilla, and salt until well blended.
  4. Gradually pour the hot milk into the egg mixture, whisking constantly.
  5. Distribute the custard mixture evenly among the ramekins. Top each with a generous sprinkling of ground nutmeg. Use freshly grated nutmeg if possible.
  6. Add hot water to the outer baking dish to about 1 inch in depth.
  7. Bake the custards for 50 to 60 minutes, or until a butter knife inserted into the center of a custard comes out clean.
  8. Let the custards cool a bit and unmold or leave in the ramekins. Serve with whipped cream, if desired
