Baked Ricotta with Blueberry Compote

Make Your Cheesecake & Eat It Too
This unique recipe, inspired by Claire Robinson, creates a gooey cheese pillow topped with warm, syrupy blueberries. What could possibly be better? It's like having cheesecake for breakfast. Technically, you're supposed to eat this on some sort of  (gluten free) bread but feel free to eat it straight from the ramekin. Both ways are outrageously good.
