Creme Brulee for breakfast? No, I haven't lost my mind!
The custard in this low fat creme brulee is actually Greek yogurt sweetened with fruit preserves on the bottom, and topped with fresh fruit. What a fancy way to serve breakfast or even dessert with very little effort while making you look like a rock star in the kitchen!
This recipe is so easy to make, and it's absolutely delicious! Use your favorite fruit preserves and top with the same fresh fruit. I highly recommend using a creme brulee torch. I've tried using my broiler to caramelize the sugar with success most of the time, but it's much easier to control this with a torch.
This would be perfect for a Mother's day brunch or dessert if you're having a dinner party. Be sure you have enough fuel in your torch and you may want to experiment with one before you making this for a large crowd.
This can be made for one or more than a dozen; assemble the preserves and yogurt ahead of time then add the sugar right when you are about to torch the sugar. If you add the sugar sooner, the sugar will be absorbed by the yogurt and it won't work. I recommend serving immediately. Enjoy!!
