To prepare creme anglaise, in small suacepan, heat milk just until it comes to a simmer. Meanwhile, in medium bowl, beat 4 egg yolks, sugar and vanilla until well blended. Add small amount of hot milk to yolk-sugar mixture, beating constantly. Add remaining milk; cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until mixture is slightly thickened and coats back of spoon. Immediately place saucepan in ice bath to cool. (sauce will continue to thicken as it cools? TO serve, unmold pate; bring to room temperature before slicing. Cut pate into slices.
