Everything Tastes Better in a Ramekin
Sure, these individually sized ceramic bowls are great for special-occasion dishes like crème brûlée and soufflés (or even bread pudding brûlée). But the cups (most of which hold about 6.8 ounces) are also great for serving up the perfect portion of mac 'n' cheese, plus they can stand a broiler's high heat, so you can crisp bread crumbs and melt additional cheese until it bubbles and browns on top. They're ideal for mini pot pies and baked eggs, too.
