"This is a very simple solution for the leftover bread and cheese from last night's party. Tossing the bread with olive oil before assembling the dish makes the top crunchy and very tasty--reminiscent of good, homemade croutons, which is exactly what it is."

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Heat olive oil in a cast iron pan, and cook onion and rosemary in oil until onion is soft.
  3. Toss bread cubes with olive oil and onions. Exact measurement of bread is not necessary. Place in a well oiled, deep sided, 9 inch square pan. Toss with 1/2 cheese, and sprinkle remaining cheese over the top.
  4. Beat together milk, cream, and eggs. Pour over bread in pan. It is fine that the bread sticks out of the custard.
  5. Bake for 1 hour, or until browned and a knife inserted in the middle comes out clean (except for melted cheese).

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • I hate to waste anything, and those crumbs of imported cheese and half eaten loaves of good bread are not cheap. Also, I really like that it does not matter if I remembered to put everything away the night before; stale is fine for this recipe. My favorite breads for this are a rosemary loaf and an olive loaf my local bakery makes. Cheeses with a lot of flavor - especially those herb encrusted brie cheeses - are great. If you do not have 1 cup of cheese left over, augment with some good cheddar.

This was absolutely DELICIOUS!!! I love that I didnt have to follow the recipe exactly but it still turned out great. I hosted a party Saturday where I served this crusty garlic bread with herbed dipping oil. Well, I had a lot of bread left over, as well as oil that had been sitting with the herbs in it. So I substituted the bread and olive oil in this recipe for the bread and olive oil that I had. I used a combination of sharp white chedder and colby jack cheeses. I also just used 2% milk. I didn't have cream, so I just used what I had. I also used dried rosemary because I didn't have fresh rosemary. I added bacon pieces just to give it a little meat. Despite all my substitutions, the dish came out really well. I will definitely be making this one again!

I will probably try it with 1-2 fewer eggs next time, as the consistency was closer to quiche than bread pudding. The flavor was excellent, though, and it will be fun to experiment with different breads and cheeses!

Super. I used whole milk instead of the more fattening stuff. I also added kale and butternut squash (sauted before hand) and it was simply yummy.
