Yum! Used freshly grated nutmeg. Didn't bother cooking the bacon or the onion first. Turned out great. - 11 Oct 2013
Used different ingredients.
MMM! So good! My husband raved about it! I didn't have any nutmeg or sherry, so I improvised a bit: I substituted the nutmeg for cinnamon and added just a pinch of cayenne pepper and a few dashes of hot sauce. Also, I didn't have enough of one kind of cheese to cover the whole thing, so I used a combo of white and regular cheddar. It was FABULOUS! I think the tiny bit of heat in the background adds a lot. I think it would be even better with a firmer bread, though. Great twist on bread pudding! - 29 Sep 2008
