This is my own recipe... I made it up a number of years ago - DH loved it for his supper. If this doesn't warm you up on those cold winter evenings ....or help with the 'cold' food at pic-nics - then nothing will!

The doses are entirely up to you - it depends on how many people you want to share it with...

Cheesy Bread and Butter Pudding

* Set and pre-heat the oven to 220C - 425F (a bit less if it's fan assisted)

* Clean and slice two onions and fry in hot olive oil until browned. Then strain to get rid of the oil and leave to cool.

* Slice and cut or grate approx 400 -500g (or sufficient to personal taste) of a good, not too strong cheese. Cheddar (or Fontina in Italy) is pretty good for this, personally I prefer a fairly strong cheese).

* Using sliced bread (not necessarily the square kind - any bread, (but in Italy NOT pane di Toscana senza sale-unsalted) Butter each slice, sufficient to fill a fairly deep glass ovenproof dish or deep sided bread tin.

* Beat one or two eggs (depending on the size of dish/tin you are using) add a pinch of salt and a little milk to these.

* Grease the dish or tin.

* Starting with a bottom layer of buttered bread, build up layers of fried onions, cheese and more bread until you reach the top - making sure that the last layer is of bread.
Now slowly pour the egg/milk mixture over the top of the layers making certain that the top layer is wet all over.

* Place in the hot oven until the top is nicely browned and all the liquid is absorbed.

N.B. Be very careful though, because the cheese does get soft an often 'runny', and could be mistaken for the egg/milk liquid.

*Cut and serve when hot. (Mind you it's pretty nice sliced cold as a snack or pic-nic addition too-if there's any left).

Sorry if my explanations aren't up to a chef's or cooks standard.
But I hope you enjoy it, if you're ever brave enough to try!!!!!

Carole B

Okay Carole!

My kids just left after a very nice visit........

While here I served (actually introduced) your cheesy bread and butter pudding. Would you believe after making a small pan I had to make a very large pan of this. (We spent the week all smelling of onions day or night)

1. They loved it!
2. They loved it even more cold (good snitching)!
3. They spent a lot of time thinking of variations that would be possible.

Instead of suger plums dancing in their heads they now had cheesy bread and butter pudding dancing in their heads.

One has made it since returning home (with crumbled bacon added). Their kids now love it.

A great big thank you for your contribution. I have tried many of the other submittals you presented. All great!

Thank you gain,
lilbees

I told you it was good! So many different ways of making it. The other night I also peeled so many onions that I couldn't get near anyone at work for two days. I couldn't get the smell out. Laughing

But it was sooooo worth it!

Forgot to add in my earlier post.

I am in the habit of saving bits and pieces of bread for my regular bread pudding. That means crusty breads, rolls, store-bought bread, etc.

I throw it in a bag in the freezer and when there is enough I make my pudding. I have a separate bag for sweet dough made products, i.e., croissants, dinner rolls and other sweet breads, which have gone stale.

When I tried the cheesy bread and butter pudding my bread was cut up into 1 inch cubes. I melted the butter and poured on the top of each layer.

Saved me money and time buttering each slice of bread. Like chicken trimmings I always have a bag or two of bread pieces in the freezer to use up.

Ah lilbees - I see a lady after my own heart....
"Waste not - want not!" Applause

I'm now into all kinds of strange home made soups for the winter. Spoiled myself with an early Christmas present last week to help with the preparation:

There's no stopping me now!

I'm really 'chuffed' (English expression of real pleasure) that you're kids liked my cheesy bread and butter pudding. It IS 'moorish' isn't it?

The onset of cooler weather has prompted me to dig through the suggestion on this forum. Winter is the best time..........to eat.

I love the toad in the hole that you wrote about. I use the same idea but with chopped apples and spices, topped with whipped cream for a big puffy, delicious breakfast. (no sausages except on the side)

Talk about calories!!! I am sure you are concocting some really low calorie soups. Don't forget to pass them on. (I like thicker soups)
