If you're concerned about consuming raw eggs, you can pasteurize the egg yolks in this recipe by making a creme Anglaise. Whisk the egg yolks with the sugar and salt. In a steady stream, pour the hot milk into the egg yolks, whisking constantly. Return the mixture to the saucepan and cook and stir over medium heat until the mixture coats the back of a spoon. Remove from heat, and pour through a sieve into a mixing bowl.
You may omit the egg whites. The texture of the finished dish won't be quite as light, but it will still be delicious.
