Bread Pudding Surprise(Main Dish)
This wonderful meal is savory. Look in the fridge and see what kind of leftovers you have. The spice cabinet is a favorite of this dish as well.
Don’t be afraid, have fun with this one, you can’t go wrong. You and your family will be pleasantly surprised!
4 C. Half & Half or buttermilk (any milk will do, however the more cream the richer the taste and texture)
1 loaf crust hard bread (French is best)
I cut my veggies into small pieces
1 C. any veggie (bell pepper)
1 1/2 C. any leftover meat (sausage, ham, steak)
1 Tbs. garlic (cooked)
2 Tbs. olive oil or butter
salt and pepper to taste
Any favorite spice: this is where you can make it Mexican, Italian, etc.
Break up any of your favorite crackers
1/4 C. cheese (pick your favorite I like American or Cheddar)
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.
Serving Size 8
Cooking Time:45 minutes

Dried onions will work just fine. Have fun w/ this recipe I never make it the same way twice. And it always turns out so good.
This recipe really is good w/ leftover meatloaf too. So many ways to make this recipe —
