Step 2: Add in 1/4 cup of sugar and milk. Stir until well mixed. Bring to a boil.
Step 3: In a medium mixing bowl, add in the egg and egg yolks. Whisk until creamy.
Step 4: In a small mixing bowl, add in the rest of the sugar and cornstarch. Stir until well mixed.
Step 5: Transfer the sugar mixture into the egg mixture and stir until well blended.
Step 6: Once the milk is boiling, drizzle into the egg mixture. Use a thin stream to prevent the eggs from cooking.
