    You can use them to make individual sizes of just about anything! My favorite, and why I bought them, is to make individual size pot pies. I also use them for apple crisps, mac n cheese, soups, custards and just about anything I want small sized.

    Have fun playing around with them!

    The Pioneer Woman's Molten Chocolate Cake recipe is to die for! I make it in Ramekins. I serve it with good vanilla ice cream instead of the whipping cream, but either way is yummy.
    I couldn't post the link, so here's the recipe, hope that's ok:

    Chicago Style Pizza Pot Pies That's a link to the first time I made them and I used a homemade crust that I got a bit thin. I just wrote a blog post that will go live tomorrow morning that's an update to the pizza pot pies. I used frozen bread dough for the crust and made homemade sauce. They were even better that way.

    I need to try PW's molten chocolate cake. That sounds good.

    And bread puddings.

    And french onion soups.
    (or any soup.. like Boma's Ginger Carrot soup... you can jazz up presentation by adding a line or swirl of sour cream (I do 1/2 fat free sour cream + 1/2 fat free yogurt.. nobody notices!)

    ----From the first big Canadian Living cookbook, there's a great recipe for Tomato Soup en Croute:
    . . . . you make the tomato soup, and several hours before serving, roll out puff pastry, cut a circle about 1-2 cms bigger (less than 1 inch) than the ramekin. Fill the ramekins 3/4 w/ the soup, cover with the puff pastry, brush it w/ beaten egg or milk. Sit it in the fridge a bit, then pop it in the oven.
    . . . .Tons of WOW! appeal, and actually not difficult to do.
    . . . . I like to serve it especially for lunch on a cold winter or fall day, along with a sandwich made from a bun, and a green salad.

    Or, serve up warmed roast beef on panini or crusty french bread, with jus* in the ramekin on the side for dipping! French fries and dollop of horseradish (I mix it w/ mustard and thick yogourt/mayo to tone it down for the uninitiated) would complete the picture!
    *if you've cooked the beef yourself, this is the pan juices. If you bought beef slices, also pick up some low sodium beef broth (most are too salty, changes the overall meal) to use.

    I am so making myself hungry! It's 5pm here, I've been intending to make the Boma ginger carrot soup all day, but there's no get up and go today!:confused3
