Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

Could this be made in individual ramekins frozen either before or after cooking? I cook for a diabetic friend so can't use an entire recipe of this, even halving is too much. Also, how much is a serving? Is it possible to add that to your recipes? It would be a HUGE help.

Hi there! Yes, these can be made in individual ramekins, and they can be frozen before cooking!

My biggest question is what is the exact serving size for this medley. I want to make it for Thanksgiving but I want to stay within my ranges.
