When I was born we lived in a trailer park called Cadillac Estates that is mostly burned down now.  Today I am a vegetarian living in Los Angeles learning how to love vegetables.

Creme Anglaise

Creme Anglaise - Topping for Cranberry-Lemon French Toast Bake


1/2 cup whole milk

1/2 cup whipping cream

(1) 2 inch piece of vanilla bean

3 large egg yolks

3 tablespoons sugar


1. Split Vanilla Bean in half lengthwise by scoring one side. Scrape the pulp from inside the bean with a paring knife and add the pulp and the split bean to the milk before heating.

2. Combine the egg yolks and sugar in a stainless-steel bowl. Whip until thick and light.

3. Scald the milk in a boiling water bath or over direct heat.

4. Very gradually pour the hot milk into the egg yolk mixture while stirring constantly with the whip.

5. Set the bowl in a pan of simmering water. Heat it, stirring constantly, until it thickens enough to coat the back of a spoon or until it reaches 185 degrees F

6. Immediately remove the bowl from the heat and set in a pan of cool water to stop the cooking. Stir in the vanilla extract if not using vanilla bean. Stir the sauce occasionally as it cools.
