TIP OF THE DAY: Ramekins For Easy Portion Control

There are certain foods that are so delicious that one can’t help but want seconds.

We feel that way about risotto. Chocolate pudding. Macaroni and cheese.

One way to avoid taking a second slice or scoop is to serve the food in ramekins for portion control. There’s no large dish brought to the table to tempt: just one ramekin per person and that’s it.

Ramekins are available in a range of sizes, from four ounces to eight ounces. For the smallest portion, use four-ounce ramekins.

Ramekins are a good investment. They’re very versatile, and can be used to bake soufflés, custards and other foods. We use them to serve:

  • Garnishes like olives and pickles (they’re also great for holding discarded olive pits)

  • Sides like apple sauce, sour cream, dipping sauces and salad dressings
  • Snacks and nibbles like nuts and dips
  • Toppings for ice cream, pancakes, yogurt, etc.

 

While most ramekins are white, you can find them in different colors. Le Creuset has handsome 7-ounce ramekins in 6 colors.
