I’m making egg custard today, so predictably, I have a Beatles song stuck in my head.
“I am the Egg Man, they are the Egg Men, I am the Walrus! Goo goo g’joob.”
Luckily, I was able to find the original video, because the Internet is a wonderful place.
But the song is even more bananas than I remembered. Most likely because it was written by John Lennon, in two days, over the course of two acid trips. It’s pretty far out, man.
But enough hippy music, let’s make some low carb egg custard.
This recipe is an oldy but a goody. For this low carb and Keto version, you’ll need heavy whipping cream, sugar-free sweetener, eggs, salt and vanilla. (And cinnamon if you are feeling spicy.) You mix it all up, cook it in a water bath in the oven, and you’re done. You’ll have a quick and easy dessert with only 3g net carbs per serving.
Goo goo g’joob!
