My friend Cybille is a great cook/ baker and I love her Bread pudding recipe. This is her recipe that I used with a loaf of Italian Bread; it had gotten hard and stale over a couple of days from being on my counter.
Savory Bread Pudding with Spinach & Mushrooms Bread pudding, an economical dish designed to use up stale bread, is most often associated with dessert. It's equally comforting turned savory, enriched with cheese and studded with vegetables.
Salted Caramel Puddings This is not your basic pudding; it's turned up a notch with a chocolate cookie base, salted caramel pudding, a layer of salted caramel, and topped off with some fresh whipped cream and a sprinkle of cookie crumbs.
A wonderful dairy supper or brunch dish for Shavuot or any time. It's not a true souffle because it uses stale bread cubes instead of a white sauce mixed with egg yolks and beaten egg whites. It's really a savory bread pudding, but it looks and tastes a lot like a souffle, so who will know? See the recipe on my blog, www.bobbiesbestrecipes.wordpress.com.
