Man with a Flan

The recipes this week are from The Egg-Files II: Man with a Flan on page 150. Jason picked this episode because of the flan. He is a huge fan of creme brulee and I think he was secretly hoping flan is the same thing. It turns out it is pretty close. It has a slightly more eggy flavor than creme brulee but otherwise it's pretty close.

I used 6 ounce ramekins instead of 4 ounce so I ended up with 6 flans instead of 8. I used caramel, homemade sugar-free blueberry jam and a mix of caramel and mini-chocolate chips. The pure caramel topped flan tasted exactly like french toast. It was really good. The blueberry was good as well but the caramel with chocolate chip was by far my favorite. The chocolate chips didn't melt much so it adds a little texture.

I'm going to be making the refrigerator pie tomorrow, so I'll post about that later in the week.

Yesss! I LOVE flan! I'm excited for this. I still have the chocolate pie to make though... And the mac & cheese... too much to catch up on. But I hope to make this very soon!

Oh goodness, you just had a baby! You can take a few weeks off. :)

I think I might sit this one out. I'm not a huge fan of flan.
