    Fried Milk Fried Milk

    This sweet dessert--with the delicate flavor of nutmeg--is crispy on the outside and smooth and custardy on the inside.

    Prep: 15 mins - Total: 3 hr 22 mins

    1/2 cup granulated sugar
    1/2 cup cornstarch
    1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
    3 cups milk
    1 tablespoon butter or margarine
    1/4 teaspoon grated lemon peel
    2 eggs, well beaten
    3/4 cup Progresso® plain dry bread crumbs
    Vegetable oil
    Powdered sugar, if desired

    1. Mix granulated sugar, cornstarch and nutmeg in 3-quart saucepan. Gradually stir in milk. Heat to boiling over medium heat, stirring constantly. Boil and stir 1 minute; remove from heat. Stir in butter and lemon peel. Spread evenly in ungreased square baking dish, 8x8x2 inches. Refrigerate uncovered at least 3 hours until firm.

    2. Cut custard into 2-inch squares, using wet knife. Dip custard squares into eggs, then coat with bread crumbs.

    3. Heat oil (1 to 1/2 inches) to 360°F; fry 2 or 3 squares at a time in oil 1 to 2 minutes or until light brown; drain on paper towels. Sprinkle with powdered sugar.

    Makes 8 servings

    Do-Ahead Tip: Because this dessert is best served immediately after frying, you can make the custard in advance and keep it refrigerated until ready to fry. Sometimes building a little anticipation for the finale is fun, so don't worry about the last-minute preparation.
