EGG'd Brulee

Creme Brulee is without a doubt one of my favorite desserts. I have always wondered if it could be done on an Egg, so this weekend I put the theory to the test. 

I started off scalding some heavy cream over medium heat, adding a halved and scraped vanilla bean and some of my favorite sweet bbq rub. Strained the cream mixture, whisked some egg yolks and sugar, tempered with the cream, then combined everything. 

The ramekins were filled and placed in a water bath inside a cake pan, placed into a 325F Large Egg & baked for approx 40 minutes. The creme was removed and refrigerated for approx 4 hours. 

I topped the creme with sugar and torched it until it was shatter like. The family really enjoyed this dessert with we will definitely do it again.

    Thanks! They turned out pretty well. I would probably add a little more sugar to the creme next time.

    I've never made this but it appears to have about the same texture & consistency as a homemade Flan. Yes?
