I just bought some mini flowerpots which are seasoning in the oven now.
To make individual bread servings.
I also have a 70's Romertopft clay cooker I use quite a a bit in the winter/fall for roasts and chicken.
What clay ware do you use? I'm thinking those mini flowerpots could be a nice way to make little meatloafs or Shepard's pie.

Emile Henry (French brand) glazed clay pottery. Cooks and cleans beautifully. I especially like the smallish sizes (2 or 3 cups) for individual servings. I make lasagna, pea soup, casseroles, bread in them.
Tom Hess (American) for red clay pie plates. Use for pies, crumbles and the like.
Idea for your flowerpots - individual or small brioche, for a luxurious breakfast or brunch.
I've also seen deserts served in those mini flower pots.
Interesting! I have never tried it with a flower pot, but many Korean dishes make use of a "dolsot" or Korean stone pot. I have a feeling you could try out the dishes in clay cookware--extra crispy rice on the bottom! ;)
Sam, since they can be heated, you can use for any small side dish or assortment of canapés...A side of smashed potato or whatever.A base of hash with a poached egg on top for breakfast.A side dish of warm hush puppies.Or chilled with a mousse.....And on and on it goes.
I dont know If I would use a commercial flowerpot for food... is it really a plant/nursery sourced flowerpot? I'd be concerned that the clay may not be food quality and may have fillers or lead. I cook in clay pots a lot, and use unglazed Columbian LaChambra and glazed Mexican Ollas for beans, stews and polenta, and a stoneware slab for bread baking.
