LOOKING for: Creme Brulee casserole style vs indiv ramekins

I am in charge of taking dessert to a champagne and desert social in our neighborhood (12 townhomes). Has anyone tried making creme brulee as a large dish vs using individual serving ramekins? My other choice of dessert is wine poached pears. Any other ideas?

That doesn't appeal to me. It wouldn't be attractive cracking through the sugar crust & trying to serve it to a group. This one's tried & true & always a hit:
PRALINE CHEESECAKE WITH PECAN SAUCE
Crust:
1 1/4 cups graham cracker crumbs
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup pecans, chopped & toasted
4 TBL butter, melted
Preheat oven to 350. Combine the crumbs, sugar & pecans in a bowl. Add the melted butter & mix well. Press the crumb mixture over the bottom & 1 1/2" up the sides of a 9" springform pan. Bake 10 minutes.

Filling:
Three 8 oz pkg cream cheese, softened
1 cup packed brown sugar
2/3 cup evaporated milk
2 TBL flour
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
3 eggs
1 cup pecan halves, toasted

Beat together the cream cheese, brown sugar, evaporated milk, flour & vanilla. Add the eggs & beat just until blended. Pour into the hot baked crust. Bake 50-55 minutes. Cool in the pan 30 minutes, loosen the sides of the springform & remove the rim. Cool completely. Arrange the pecan halves on top of the cheesecake.

Pecan sauce:
1 cup dark brown sugar, packed
2 TBL cornstarch
2 TBL butter
1/2 cup broken pecan pieces

In a saucepan mix the brown sugar & cornstarch. Add 1 1/2 cups of water. Bring to a boil & stir over medium heat until thickened & bubbly, about 5 minutes. Stir in the butter & add the pecans. Serve the sauce on the side in a sauceboat.~~ Without Reservations

kelyn I'm in the same boat. I'm responsible for dessert for 18 tonight and have been pondering the fact that I don't have 18 ramekins, and I think folks might want to control their portions by the spoonful.

DH will be making meringes (sp?) and we'll have plenty of egg yolks available!

I googled 'creme brulee casserole' and didn't come up with much, except this one.

Anyone have recipes for about 12 yolks?

I make it this way every Christmas in a 9x13 pyrex and I have to say it works well and never any complaints dish is usually scrapped empty.

Through lack of time to research and ingredients, I ended up making the creme brulee in a pan. Here is DH playing with his blow torch. And here is the finished product - next time, my MIL has twelve ramekins, and I have eight, so I'll do it the proper way! That being said, that pan was cleaned out within minutes, LOL. I used Debbie Puente's recipe from cremebrulee.com because it called for eight yolks and thats what I had.
