Savory Bread Pudding
My son came to visit and we needed different dinners every night. So once he went back up north, I was inundated with an abundance of leftovers. My favorite pass time is to try and figure out different combinations to use up leftovers and this was a winner on two counts, it used up a lot of stuff and it tasted great.
I had a tupperware of steamed broccoli, another of roasted carrots, in another about a cup and a half of chicken gravy, a small baguette of garlic bread,some leftover slices of sharp cheddar cheese, in another a small amount of sour cream.
I cubed the garlic bread and placed it into a large bowl, added the broccoli and carrots and gravy and added about 1 Tbs of rosemary and 1 Tbs of sage mixed this up well and then added about 1 1/2 cups of milk into which I scrambled 4 eggs to form a custard. Combined everything well. Placed everything into a 9 X 9 inch baking pan that was greased with vegetable spray, put the cheddar cheese slices on top, and placed in a 350° oven for about 45 minutes until the custard was set. Once set I took it out of the oven and let it sit for a few minutes, then served with sour cream.
Not exactly gourmet but it certainly ended up as a easy and tasty way to use up the leftovers. Hopefully this will give someone out there ideas of their own. Substitute creme fraiche for sour cream,add whatever you think will go together well and with a few herbs and spices perk it up for a great dinner.
I do love carrots, the green stuff not so sure but it was covered with chicken gravy and custard, yummy! I personally would have hidden a nice beef bone inside but then I’m not the chef. 5 paws even with out the meat.
