Savory breadpudding |

I have a thing for bread pudding. Did you know that? You might have seen this sweet version with blue berries I made recently and shared here recently. Looks good right? But if you’re not into sweets and still want to get rid of that excess amount of bread you accidentally bought (or baked) I have this awesome sweet version for you today.

It’s pretty simple to make. We used sour dough bread here as I love the taste of it and it is somewhat firmer than regular whole wheat bread. Which is ideal for use in a bread pudding. Of course you can easily vary the different kinds of veggies you want to include. I love using up leftover greens I have in the fridge.
