The first dishes that often comes to mind when you think of ramekins is crème brûlée or soufflé — but they’re so much more versatile than that. Indeed, there are a number of great ways to use ramekins that don’t require a blowtorch or advanced skills! Ramekins are in fact a great way to make fun individual servings of baked savory pies, pastas and soups. These dishes may be decadent, but that’s the beauty of ramekins: they’re the perfect way to control your portion sizes!
One thing to keep in mind when adapting recipes for ramekins is that they may (but not always!) take less time than they would in a larger casserole dish. You can either subtract 25 degrees from the baking temperature or check on your ramekins in the oven periodically.
From classics like pot pie and lasagna to unconventional dishes like tomato soup with broiled cheddar lids and eggplant moussaka, check out these tasty dishes!
