Smoked Extra Old Cheddar Brûlée

Recipe Creator: Chef Rob Thomas

Savoury and slightly sweet, these are a great addition to brunch or a fantastic way to end a meal. Plus you get to use a kitchen torch, so they are slightly dangerous to make - time to live life on the edge! Side note: you can totally use the broiler, but that's not as fun.

Ingredients

  • 200ml Heavy cream
  • 4 Eggs
  • Pinch Nutmeg
  • 60g Maple Smoked Extra Old Cheddar, finely grated
  • 2tbsp Caster sugar

Directions

  1. In a stainless steel or glass bowl whisk together the cream, eggs, sugar, nutmeg and cheese.
  2. Place bowl over a small saucepan filled with enough water to simmer without touching the bowl.
  3. Stir continuously for 10-15 minutes until the mixture is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon. Do not let it overheat or the eggs will curdle.
  4. Divide the mixture evenly among ramekins. Refrigerate overnight.
  5. Before serving, sprinkle with sugar and place under a broiler for 2 minutes or use a kitchen torch to caramelize the sugar.
