Like a bread and butter pudding but with cheese and bacon. This savoury dish is great when eaten hot or cold with salad, delicious!
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
Ahhh - soft & savory, not too eggy & very tasty. I made these in individual ramekins and served them just warm they were perfect. Thank you. UPDATE - I used 4" ramekins and baked for just about 20 minutes. - 28 Aug 2012 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
