Breakfast CrèmeBrûlée

This recipe comes from Jerry James Stone of

2 cups water
1 cup old-fashioned oats
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup unsweetened berries
1/4 cup chopped nuts
1/2 cup dried berries
1/4 cup maple syrup (optional)
2 Tbsp. brown sugar

  • Bring the water to a boil and add in the oats and salt. Reduce to a low simmer and cook for 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and let sit covered for 2 minutes.
  • Divide the unsweetened berries (I used frozen as fresh are not in season yet here), nuts, dried berries, and oatmeal between two ramekins.
  • Top with the maple syrup, followed by the brown sugar.
  • Place the ramekins on a baking sheet and put in the broiler on high for about 5 minutes, making sure that the crème brûlée doesn’t burn.
  • Serve warm and enjoy!
