Keto Creme Brulee

Keto Creme Brulee

4 egg yolks
2 cups of heavy cream
1 tablespoon of Swerve granulated sweetener

1-2 teaspoons of Swerve granulated sweetener for the topping of each serving

Preheat your oven to 325 degrees. In a bowl; mix the egg yolks, heavy cream, and Swerve together with a whisk.

Divide into containers -- the original recipe said that the mixture made 4 servings... but that seemed a bit much for us. Additionally, I bought a creme brulee set with the torch from Bed Bath and Beyond for $20 -- if you do that though -- make sure you get the butane from them when you buy it because it didn't come with the set. Anyway -- our mixture became 7 servings -- we had the 4 vessels that came with the set -- and 3 from frozen creme brulee that I had gotten previously from H-E-B.

Place your containers in an oven-safe casserole dish with sides. Pour in about 1-2 cups boiling water until it's about 1/2 way up the sides of your creme brulee servings. Bake for 30 minutes or until it's set. Ours were a little jiggly when we pulled them from the oven.

I immediately took them out of the water bath, placed them on a sheet tray, and put them into the refrigerator. When we ate them last night - I wished that they had been able to have more time in the fridge because I love the cold custard underneath the warm sugar.

Before serving - sprinkle the top with 1-2 teaspoons of Swerve and use your torch to brown them OR if needed place your oven rack as close to the top as you can and use the broiler to brown the sugar. If you use your broiler -- watch it the entire time because it can burn really quickly.

I served mine with two sliced strawberries as seen in the picture -- but you could put some whipped cream on it as well.
