4 cups heavy cream
1 cup granulated sugar, plus additional for caramelizing
1 tablespoon vanilla
3/4 teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Arrange 7 6-ounce ramekins on a rimmed baking sheet. Bring 4 cups of hot water to a simmer.
In a large saucepan, heat cream and sugar until the mixture just begins to bubble.
In a medium bowl, whisk together egg yolks, vanilla and salt. Add a tablespoon of the hot cream mixture and continue to whisk. Continue adding hot cream mixture by tablespoons until egg yolk mixture is warm. Then whisk the yolk mixture into the remaining cream. Remove saucepan from heat and cover liquid with a piece of plastic wrap. Remove plastic wrap and divide mixture between ramekins. Put baking sheet in oven and carefully pour simmering water around ramekins. Bake 30 minutes or until the custard is set but still trembling in the center. Remove from oven and allow to cool.
When ready to serve, sprinkle sugar over the top of the custard. Using a handheld torch, melt (or “brulee”) the sugar until browned and bubbling. Allow to cool before serving. Serves: 7

Farmer John Burger
Crack an egg over your burger! Our “Farmer John Burger” is named after John Benoit, the Director of Livestock here at White Oak Pastures. John works his tail off so you know he needs a filling meal to keep him working long hours. This “bad boy”, the burger, not John, is made with our grassfed beef, bacon, fried egg, rosemary-garlic aioli, greens and American Cheese, and yes, we dare you!
