Mini-cocottes Paleo recipes (no sweets please)

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created December 25, 2011 at 11:49 PM

Just received this as a gift: http://www.amazon.com/Creuset-Mini-Cocottes-Cookbook-Flame/dp/B002MAQ6BI/ref=cm_cr_pr_product_top
and I'm hoping to get some good recipes. There was a booklet, but most of the recipes have grains.

I don't want "gluten-free" flour baking recipes, the boyfriend and I are not big on sweet or baked things. I don't like the extra carbs and empty nutrition these flours provide.
If you want to share dessert recipes with me, please make them the savory kind.

Also, neither of us like quiches, they give us gag reflex ;-D

Thank you and hope you all had a merry Christmas.

Oh that's not a criticism, I apreciate the suggestions, just seems like way too much work and electricity expense just for these little things, probably not worth it for us 2.

I'm having a hard time justifing tuning on the huge oven to make just one or two of these small pots. Even if I make the 4 pots it still feels like a waste of energy. Boyfriend suggested we use them to hold sugar and cream for coffee when we have guests, spices, cotton balls and q-tips in the bathroom, jewelry ... haha, that's sounding beter and better to me the more I think about it :p

They're just mini's that you can play with. For reals treat them like the big guys. Soup, souffle, little potted meals, gratins, teeny lasagnes layered with veg instead of the pasta, etc. Baked egg, Eggs en Cocotte, with spinach and bacon are so nice.

They're definitely more of a dinner party item or just a fun single serving. I have a couple of sets and basically just treat them like lidded ramekins. Enjoy - it'll be good times experimenting with them.

potted meat! rillettes! If the library has this cook book, you are golden... http://www.amazon.com/Fat-Appreciation-Misunderstood-Ingredient-Recipes/dp/1580089356

baked coconutmilk/egg custards, with indian spices? I've seen recipes for the custards, but you'll have to play around with the spices.

Definitely oeufs en cocotte - this is what my French neighbour uses them for!

Her recipe: in the bottom of the cocotte, put a little bit of fried lardons (chopped bacon) then break in an egg or two. Pour hot cream over the top, season with a little black pepper. Put the lid on and bake in the oven (hott-ish). Take them out just before they are as set as you like them - they will keep cooking in their own heat for a minute or two.

Chopped mushrooms, leeks and ham fried in butter are another amazingly delicious filling. They make a nice light meal on their own or with a bit of salad leaves.
