      3/4 cup sugar; divided
      2 tablespoons water
      2 eggs
      2 egg whites
      1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
      1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
      1 3/4 cup 1% low-fat milk
      1 1/2 cup mashed cooked pumpkin


      Combine 1/2 cup sugar and 2 tablespoons water in a small saucepan, and place over medium heat. Caramelize by stirring often until sugar melts and is golden (about 10 minutes). Pour immediately into 6 ounce custard cups, tipping cups quickly until sugar coats bottom of cups; set aside.

      Combine remaining 1/4 cup sugar, eggs, egg whites, and next 3 ingredients in a bowl; beat at medium speed of an electric mixer until sugar is dissolved. Add pumpkin; beat at low speed until smooth. Pour into prepared cups; place cups in a large, shallow pan. Add hot water to pan to a depth of 1 inch.

      Bake at 325 degrees for 1 hour or until a knife inserted near center comes out clean. Remove cups from water; let cool. Cover and chill 2 hours.

      To serve, loosen edges of custard with a rubber spatula. Place a dessert plate upside down on top of cup; invert custard onto plate. Drizzle any remaining syrup over custard.

      Note: Use canned pumpkin in place of mashed cooked pumpkin, if desired.
