Have you experienced the latest trend in entertaining? It's hostess-friendly and fun for guests! Tasting parties are designed to let guests try a little of everything and the Hyacinth Ramekins are perfect for this new trend in entertaining. Try these fun recipes for your next party gathering!

Serve in 12 oven-safe 3 oz Ramekins
  • 1 cup graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/4 cup margarine
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 8-0z package cream cheese, softened (ricotta cheese may be used)
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1 can cherry, blueberry pie filling or fresh berries for topping (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
For a simple graham cracker crust, mix graham cracker crumbs, margarine and sugar, then divide equally between the 12 ramekins.
In a large mixing bowl, beat cream cheese, sugar and vanilla with electric mixer until well blended. Add egg whites, mix well, then add sour cream and mix thoroughly. Pour equally into the 12 ramekins, almost to the top.
Bake 20 minutes or until center is almost set. Turn off oven, leaving oven door open for another 15 minutes. Remove from oven and refrigerate until chilled. When ready to serve, top each ramekin with a spoonful of pie filling or fresh berries.

Serve in 20 oven-safe 3oz ramekins
  • 1 pkg refrigerator bisucits
  • 5 eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup cottage cheese
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 cup butter or margarine, melted
  • 2 cups grated Monterey Jack cheese
  • 4 tbsp finely chopped green onions’
  • 1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese, optional
  • 1 jar of salsa for topping, optional
Separate biscuits and cut in half horizontally, making 20 pieces of thin pastry. Place a piece of pastry into each ramekin. Press down. Bake for 10 minutes at 350 degrees, until just brown and slightly puffy.

In a large bowl, combine beaten eggs, and cottage cheese. Beat in flour, baking powder and melted butter. Stir in Monterey Jack cheese, green onions. Mix well.

Pour mixture equally into the ramekins. Sprinkle a few pieces of cheddar cheese on top(optional). Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes or until done. Serve warm, plain or with salsa on the side in a dip bowl.

You can also make this quiche without the pastry crust, or us some toasted bread cubes. You can add almost anything to this recipe: bacon, mushrooms, green peppers, etc.
