Savory Bacon and Gouda Bread Pudding

Today I wanted to share a delicious recipe I created for brunch this week using all the leftover bread crusts I had from my kiddos sandwiches. I loaded this bread pudding with all my favorite brunch foods including eggs, bacon, and lots of Gouda cheese. 
The best part- this savory dish is perfect for breakfast, lunch, or dinner!




Ingredients:


  • 5 cups leftover bread crusts, chopped
  • 8 slices maple bacon, cooked crisp and chopped
  • 4 eggs, beaten
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 1/2 cups Gouda {or Fontina cheese}, shredded
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp allspice
  • salt/white pepper, to taste

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Grease an 8X8 baking dish.
  3. In a large bowl, combine eggs, cream, maple syrup, allspice, and salt and pepper. 
  4. Mix well.  
  5. Add chopped bread and lightly push down until the bread is covered and is soaking up the egg mixture.
  6. Now mix in chopped bacon and 1 cup shredded Guoda cheese.
  7. Pour into the baking dish and top with remaining 1/2 cup of cheese.
  8. Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 35-40 minutes until cooked through.
  9. Slice into squares and serve hot.

 I saved all the leftover bread crusts from a loaf of bread for this recipe. 
My kiddos went through a phase where they didn't want crusts on their sandwiches and I hated to waste it!
 In a large bowl, combine eggs, cream, maple syrup, allspice, and salt and pepper. 
Mix well with a whisk. 
 Add chopped bread and lightly push down until the bread is covered.
Make sure the bread soaking up the egg mixture.
 Now mix in chopped bacon.
Then add 1 cup shredded Guoda cheese.
 Pour into a greased baking dish.
Top with remaining 1/2 cup of cheese.
 Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 35-40 minutes at 350 degrees.
 Slice into squares and serve hot.
Hope you like this recipe as much as my family and I did!
