Simple yogurt and fresh strawberries become a special treat with the addition of a crunchy, caramelized sugar topping. Enjoy it for breakfast or dessert.

  • 2 cups plain whole-milk Greek yogurt
  • 1 cup coarsely chopped strawberries, plus several strawberry slices, for garnish
  • 5 Tbs. turbinado or granulated sugar

In a medium bowl, combine the yogurt with the chopped strawberries and 1 Tbs. sugar. Divide among four 6-oz. ramekins. Garnish each with a few strawberry slices. Sprinkle each with about 1 Tbs. sugar. Pass the flame of a torch over the sugar until it’s melted and browned, about 30 seconds. Serve immediately.

A pretty and striking brunch side and totally delicious. Plus, nothing gets me stoked about a recipe quite like the excuse to use my kitchen torch.

An easy, delicious, and fun treat for breakfast or after school. Great with strawberries or mango too. Nothing gets the 2nd grader out of bed faster than hearing mommy fire up the blowtorch!
