2 cups milk
2 eggs beaten
1/2 cup white sugar
1 pinch salt
1 dash vanilla extract
1 pinch ground nutmeg optional
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
Whisk milk, eggs, sugar, salt, and vanilla together in a bowl until completely combined.
Pour egg mixture into 6 custard cups; sprinkle tops with nutmeg.
Place cups in a baking pan.
Fill pan with enough hot water to reach halfway up sides of the custard cups.
Bake in the preheated oven until custards are set, about 1 hour. Cool completely.
