What’s your favorite holiday side dish?!
Everyone loves their turkey or ham. We all do. But Thanksgiving would not be the same with just turkey or ham. You’ve got to have all those other delicious dishes on the side. From healthy green beans, to brussels sprouts. Roasted, mashed or sweet potatoes (…or all three!). You’ve got to have savory stuffing, corn bread and cranberry sauce.
And how about a thick slice of this savory and moist bread pudding, topped with a crunchy, cheesy top, and filled with flavorful mushroom and tasty speck?!?
This can be a fun and delicious alternative to your traditional stuffing, or an extra side dish that will surely impress your guests.
And why not?!? It might become your new favorite too!
Sorry for the yelling, but you know me. I get a little too passionate about making recipes from fresh ingredients, especially when they are easy to make, and taste one hundred times better than packaged.
Anyways, for this recipe all you need to do is slice the bread, drizzle with olive oil and lightly grill both side. And just like I do for bruschetta, brush each slice of bread, on both sides, with garlic. Oh YEAH!! Brushed garlic is the best. Much better than cooked, definitely better than raw. It gives the perfectly garlicky aroma without overpowering the flavor of the dish.
