Full of Gratitude..and the recipe for Savory Bread Pudding
My friend Alan, alandivack.blogspot.com/ who loves to cook, asked me for my recipe for the savory bread pudding. So here it is.
Savory Bread Pudding
Most of a loaf of slightly stale challa
Cube Challa and leave it out on your counter for about an hour so it gets even more stale
Pre heat oven to 350
Put 9 x13 pan in the oven, add two Tbs of butter to pan to melt while oven preheats
Process two onions in a food processor
Add to pan in oven
If you are making this for my husband and youngest son, leave out the onions
Let onions brown in the pan. Sliced mushrooms would be nice here too, but again, leave them out if you are cooking for my youngest.
In a bowl, beat three eggs. Add three cups milk and continue to mix.Add salt and pepper, be generous with the pepper.If you are not cooking for my youngest son, add a few scrapings of nutmeg.
Take pan with browned onions out of the oven, add cubed challa, mixing to distribute the browned vegetables. Add milk+ egg mixture. If the challa isn't covered, add more milk. Top with a couple of hands full of shredded cheese. Bake until knife inserted in center comes out clean.
