Make A Savory Bread Pudding Just by Adding Cheese

July 22, 2018

Bread Pudding is one of the easiest ways to salvage a stale loaf of bread: pour on some custard, pop it in the oven, and you’ve got your week’s dessert. But for people with more of a taste for the savory over the sweet, we made some simple changes to the cinnamon-sugar-vanilla that usually goes into bread pudding, for your week’s main (or side-dish) instead.

Add even more cheese if you’d like; whose stopping you?

Add cheese (we used 2 types here), and replace the aforementioned dessert-ingredient-trio with ground pepper, and that’s it. It’s easy to make, and consists of ingredients that you probably already have in your pantry, making this recipe a no-brainer rainy day activity too.
