I don’t know what you do when you have too much bread or stale bread in your kitchen but I would always come with a bread pudding version: sweet or savory depending on what else is there in the fridge or cupboards.
Bread pudding is a bread-based dessert popular in many countries’ cuisines . As you might know the main ingredients are stale bread and milk or cream, eggs and some form of fat: butter or suet. If you choose a sweet bread pudding version you also need sugar, dried fruits, nuts, cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla, bourbon or rum extract. If you choose a savory variation you can also add cheese, mushroom, spinach, olives depending on your inspiration.
I think no matter what kind you choose they both are a great choice for brunch.
Savory puddings can also be used as meal.
Sweet bread pudding:
dried prunes, cinnamon and dried prunes bread pudding
apples and cinnamon bread pudding
Savory bread puddings:
cheddar, feta and green olives bread pudding
Spinach and cheese bread pudding:
Spinach and goat cheese whole wheat bread pudding
I hope that whatever your choice will be you enjoy the bread pudding 🙂
