I don't make this very much because your dad doesn't like it, but it's my favorite. Whenever I was sick as a youngster, Ama B made this for me. It's creme caramel without the caramel.
Preheat oven to 325
3/4 C sugar
2 C milk (preferably, whole milk)
1 tsp vanilla
grated nutmeg (fresh if possible)
Beat 5 eggs. Add sugar and beat. Stir in milk, vanilla, and nutmeg. Pour into oven-proof casserole dish. Set in bain marie* and bake about 45 minutes or until knife inserted in center comes out clean.
*Place casserole into a roasting pan and add boiling water about 1/2 way up the side of the casserole dish.
