Cheddar Pudding


Bored with your usual breakfast? Try this easy bread pudding. You stir it together the night before, then pop it in the oven as soon as you get up. By the time you get showered and dressed, it’ll be ready. Add bacon or sausage if you like, pre-cooked, of course. If there’s any left over, you can have it with salsa for supper. HARRY

PS Lakshmi at The ‘yum’ blog suggests serving it with chutney and chili. ‘Sounds great.

5 slices whole wheat bread, buttered and cubed
1/4 pound sharp Cheddar cheese, grated (1 cup)
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 cup half-and-half

In a greased 1-quart casserole, combine the bread, cheese, eggs, and half-and-half. Cover and refrigerate overnight. Bake at 275 degrees F for 45 minutes or until set.
Makes 4 servings.

    This sounds yummy – one could top it with spicy chutney and chili before serving i think. Can I combine fresh cream and milk to substitute for half and half?

    Is that a cracked egg?

    Chutney and chili would be great on this. Yes, you can combine fresh cream and milk. Half-and-half is a commercial mix made of half cream and half whole milk. You could use all cream if you want the pudding to be really rich.

    Yes, that is a cracked egg. Michael wanted to photograph a broken egg with the light behind it. I have no idea how he did it but I really like it.

    Thanks for the wonderful easy breakfast recipe. I always find it difficult to cook for breakfast. this should add some spice.

    You can adapt this pudding to whatever kinds of cheese you have. You could also add spices and peppers or onion. It’s a very adaptable recipe.
