Ingredients to make Portuguese Egg Custards:
- 3 eggs
- 2 deciliters of milk
- 30 grams of butter
- 0.5 kilos of tomatoes
- 100 grams of onions
- 3 oil tablespoons
- 1 tablespoon of white wine
How to make Portuguese egg flans:
Step NO 1
Heat the oil in a frying pan and add the chopped onion; When it starts to brown, add the tomato after cutting it into small pieces.
Step NO 2
Let it cook gently for half an hour or more and when this time has elapsed it is passed through a very fine strainer, squeezing a lot with the mushroom so that a very thick and fine sauce is left, add a tablespoon of white wine, salt, white pepper and twenty grams of butter; everything is mixed and reserved for the heat.
Step NO 3
In a container, the eggs are broken and they are beaten a little as for an omelette, the hot milk and a little salt are added and they are divided into six individual molds, well spread with butter.
Step NO 4
They are put to bake in the oven in a water bath for a quarter of an hour and when they take consistency (you can tell by sticking the knitting needle in the center, and if it comes out clean it will be just right) they are removed and left in hot water, but not too cold so they don’t get cold.
Step NO 5
They are removed from the mold in a source and the tomato sauce is poured without covering the puddings.
