Savory Breakfast Bread Pudding

This savory bread pudding was super yummy and easy to make. I'm thinking next time I will add mushrooms to give it extra flavor.


Savory Breakfast Bread Pudding

4 eggs
1 cup milk
1 tablespoon parsley
1 tablespoon butter
1/2 onion, chopped
2 green onions, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 fresno peppers, chopped
1 small tomato, chopped
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper 
1/4 cup spinach
1 1/2 cups cheese, shredded {monterey jack and sharp cheddar}
5 strips bacon, diced
5-6 slices of bread, cubed
slap yo mama seasoning, sprinkled on top

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 
  • In a bowl, add the eggs, milk and parsley. Whisk together and set aside.  
  • In a pan over medium heat, add the butter and saute the onions. Add the green onions, garlic and fresno peppers and continue to saute. Add in the tomatoes and cook just until the tomato juices start to evaporate. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Add the vegetable mixture to the egg mixture. Add the spinach and 1 cup of the cheese mixture as well. 
  • In the same pan used to cook the vegetables, add the bacon. Cook completely. Drain the bacon grease and add the bacon slowly to the egg mixture making sure to stir while adding. 
  • Spray a 8x8 inch baking pan with cooking spray and add in the bread. Pour the egg mixture over the bread and make sure all the bread is equally soaked. Sprinkle the remaining 1/2 cup of cheese over the top and sprinkle with the slap yo mama seasoning. 
  • Bake for 30 minutes. Let rest for 5 minutes before serving.


I served this with spicy roasted potatoes!
