  • In a medium bowl, combine the egg, egg yolk and granulated sugar. Set the bowl over a pan of simmering water and beat at high speed until the mixture is thick and warm, about 4 minutes. Off the heat, continue beating the mixture until thick enough to form a slowly dissolving ribbon when a beater is lifted, about 2 minutes.
