Erik Anderson’s Maple Thyme Custards


    • 1 cup heavy cream
    • 1 cup whole milk
    • 2 egg yolks
    • 2 whole eggs
    • 2 sprigs fresh thyme
    • 1/4 cup Blis Maple Syrup
    • Truffle oil to taste
    • Pine extract to taste
    • 12 bacon chips
    • 12 egg shells


    Servings: 12 appetizer portions

    For custard base:

    Mix heavy crème and milk with maple syrup. Bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer for 10 minutes. Add the thyme sprigs to the mixture and let steep for 15 minutes in a warm place.

    Whisk 2 yolks and 2 whole eggs together and temper in the custard base. (Remember to remove the thyme sprigs!)

    Fill hollowed out egg shells 3/4 of the way with custard and bake in a 300 degree-oven until set. Start checking them after 20 minutes or so.

    Garnish with maple syrup, bacon and fresh thyme leaves.
