 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    4      cups          skim milk
    2                    large eggs plus 2 egg whites
      1/2  cup           sugar
    1      tablespoon    vanilla
      1/4  cup           dark rum or brandy -- optional
                         Freshly grated nutmeg
      Heat milk in heavy saucepan until steaming.  Whisk together eggs, egg
 whites and sugar in bowl.  Gradually whisk in hot milk.  Return mixture to
 saucepan and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly with wooden spoon, 4
 to 6 minutes, or until custard thickens enough to coat spoon.  Do not
 overcook or custard will curdle.
      Immediately remove from heat and pour through strainer into bowl.  Stir
 in vanilla.  Cover and regrigerate overnight, or until chilled.  Before
 serving, pour half of custard into blender.  Add 2 ice cubes and half of
 rum.  Blend until frothy.  Pour into glasses and sprinkle nutmeg over top.
 Repeat with remaining custard and rum.

 treat.  This version uses cooked eggs and so meets current safety
