- Cooking: 4 min
- 3/4 cup (180 mL) 35 % cream
- 1/4 cup (60 mL) Milk

In a saucepan over low heat, heat cream and milk until steam starts to form.
Meanwhile, beat egg yolks for 2 minutes then beat in flour. Pour a little warm cream into egg yolk mixture, whisking constantly. Pour mixture into saucepan and cook over low heat, stirring with a wooden spoon, until mixture thickens. Add cheese and stir until melted. Add Cayenne and salt and pepper generously.
Evenly divide avocado and crabmeat among 4 medium-sized 3-1/2 inches (9 cm) ramekins and sprinkle with lemon juice. Pour cheese mixture on top; sprinkle with sugar.
To caramelize, broil for about 4 minutes. Serve hot or warm.
You can prepare cheese mixture ahead. Assemble and broil just before serving.
