    Maybe we could use a little help with your question, me anyway. Flan is an egg custard. How exactly are you expecting it to taste? How "too eggy" does yours taste? Are you using a recipe, or going from what you just know or think? Making flan is not at all rocket surgery. I like flan. Here are some tried-and-true recipes:
