Golden Strawberry Gratins

  • SERVINGS: 8
  • FAST

Sabayon, a sweet, frothy emulsion of egg yolks and wine or liqueur, makes a delicious topping for berries of all kinds.

  1. 3 pints strawberries, hulled and sliced 1/4 inch thick
  2. 3 large eggs
  3. 2 large egg yolks
  4. 1/2 cup sugar
  5. 1/4 cup Grand Marnier
  1. Preheat the broiler. Arrange the berries in 8 shallow heatproof dishes.
  2. Bring several inches of water to a simmer in a medium saucepan. In a medium stainless-steel bowl, whisk the eggs with the yolks and sugar for 2 minutes. Add the Grand Marnier and whisk for 1 minute. Set the bowl over the simmering water and whisk continuously until the sabayon is thick and fluffy, 4 to 5 minutes; be sure to whisk in the sabayon from the side of the bowl. Remove the bowl from the heat.
  3. Spoon 1/4 cup of the sabayon on each dish of strawberries. Set 4 of the dishes on a baking sheet and broil for 1 minute, or until the sabayon is lightly browned. Repeat with the remaining dishes.

Suggested Pairing

A high-acid wine, such as a sparkling Blanc de Blancs, cuts the richness of this luscious dessert.
