Porcini Savory Bread Pudding

For anyone who like porcini’s (like me) this is bread pudding delicious. Use as appetizer or side dish.

Wine Pairing Suggestion: Pick your favorite bold red…I’d go with a nebbiolo or syrah, depending on the other foods. It paired well with a shiraz at one of our Saturday Pairings.

Ingredients

  • Slices of ciabatta crusts removed (enough to cover bottom of oven dish (about 9”x9”)
  • Butter for greasing
  • 1 small shallot finely sliced
  • 3 eggs
  • 2fl oz heavy cream
  • 1oz dried porcini rehydrated in hot water and finely chopped
  • 2oz Perorino sliced
  • 2 tsp chopped fresh thyme

Instructions

1.      Preheat the oven to 400oF

2.      Layer the bread in a small oven dish, greased with butter.

3.      Mix the shallot, eggs, cream and porcini in a bowl. Pour the mixture over the bread.

4.      Place the Pecorino on top of the bread and place into the oven to bake for about 12 minutes until the cheese is fully melted.

5.      Remove from the oven and serve garnished with the chopped thyme
