Berry Banana Brulee

From a secular standpoint, this holiday weekend brings to mind sweet treats. Give your family something special in the morning, which doesn’t involve a Cadbury wrapper (although who doesn’t love a decadent Cadbury Creme Egg this time of year?) with these easy and delicious brulee-like breakfast muffins. Because dessert masked as a meal is never a bad thing. Recipe below.

I can attest that they are delicious, but they are not the prettiest dessert you’ll ever serve (the bananas, of course, brown quite a bit in the oven). That’s why this is such a good dessert – uh, I mean breakfast – to serve to your family rather than guests.
