I cook clean yell at kids work clean repeat & I AM ALL ABOUT EFFICIENCY
I feel like I’m coming down with something, feeling a little blah. I need some comfort food to make myself feel better. Five pieces of fried chicken and pizza for dinner did not help at all. I needed my mom’s steamed milk. No, not my mom’s milk. My mom used to make me steamed milk and egg ever since I was a child as part of my nutritional breakfast. Oh, how I used to envy my classmates who had Chef Boyardee while my mom made steamed milk and french toast for me. ^_~ It also explains why I drink milk (and juices) from a bowl all my life and never found it odd until my friends cracked cat jokes about my habit!
This drink hits the spot when you’re craving something sweet and soupy and great when you’re feeling blah or pregnant. I drank a lot of this (minus half the sugar I normally use) when I was pregnant.
Patch has never had it before, he’s not a fan of drinking milk but he’s willing to try it if I make it tonight. It’s really simple and there are many variations to make this.
Boiled Milk and Egg Drink
Boil the milk at medium heat. Keep an eye on the milk as it can easily (and quietly) burn at the bottom. Crack an egg into the milk and stir it. You can keep the yolk intact or break it in the milk. Add sugar to taste.
As the milk starts to froth, turn off the heat and stir. If the milk looks like it will overflow, remove the pot from the heat element. Pour milk into a bowl (or mug if you’re like Patch) and enjoy. Who needs an expensive milk frother when milk+sugar+heat can do the same?
Any eggs would do but I like these free range eggs from Famous Foods for all the reasons listed on the box (veggie feed, local, etc). They are about $5 per box (dozen) but goes on sale occasionally.
