Make croutons, slice and grind into crumbs or feed it to the birds?
I had half a loaf of brioche which was quickly on it's way to stale.
So I decided to try my hand at making a bread pudding.
I went through a few of my favourite recipe books and was surprised to see not even one listed in the index.
Bread pudding sounds like comfort food to me and is the kind of thing my Grandmother would make.
She was very thrifty and did not waste wantonly.
So I did what any modern cook would do I "googled" bread pudding.
here's the recipe I chose to use.
It went together in a jiffy and I had all the ingredients on hand.
it made enough to feed a crowd!
I would suggest serving it with
some Greek yogurt,
whipped cream or
a scoop of French Vanilla ice cream
invite the neighbours over for a cup of tea
and enjoy some friendly chit chat.
Happy 4th of July
to our American neighbours!
