  1. First start off by separating the eggs. You can save the egg yolks for omelettes, meatballs, or meringue! 
  2. Then, split the vanilla bean in half and use the back of a small knife to scrape out the caviar and put it along with the pod into a medium pot. 
  3. Pour in the cream and then turn the heat on medium-high and bring it to a boil.  
  4. Cover it, set it to the side for 15 minutes, and then take out the pod. 
  5. In a large bowl, add the egg yolks and half of the sugar. Whisk until the color is a light yellow, and then slowly pour in the hot cream. Do it as slowly as you can or the eggs will cook and become scrambled eggs.
  6. Pour mixture into ramekins and put them into a baking dish. 
  7. Fill the dish with hot water so it comes halfway up the sides of the ramekins. This will ensure an even bake. 
  8. Bake at 325 F for 40-45 minutes, then pour the remaining sugar on top of the ramekins and broil them for a few minutes until the sugar has caramelized, or use a blowtorch to do it. 
  9. Enjoy!
