Directions

In a big bowl, whisk together eggs and Half & Half. Cut bread in 1-inch cubes and put bread into mix. Let soak for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, in a sauce pan, heat olive oil or butter. Cook onion and garlic and other veggies until just tender. This should only take a few minutes. It also brings out wonderful flavors. Stir in meat, veggies. Add favorite spices to taste. Put in casserole dish. Can put in fridge for a day ahead of time or add crust (crackers and cheese mix). Put in 400 degrees oven for about 45 minutes.

Note: You can make this sweet instead of savory. Do the same, add the brown sugar. Put into casserole dish, top with cinnamon (check time at 30 minutes.)

  • I've read and reread this recipe and still do not quite picture all these food items in one pot--so to speak..I love to try it but it appears to be alot of work for something that might come up awful.

  • Wow Heather,
    Completely different than my Mom's bread pudding which we always had for desert! So yes, it was a surprise to me. It sounds like a interesting dish, not sure if I will try it, but it sounds interesting.

  • sballe, I'm not sure if your comment is good or bad??? However if you did not care for the recipe, you need to be more open in what your matters might be, or maybe you are having trouble folling the recipe. I found them to be a bit unclear. Heather
