Savory Mushroom Bread Pudding

Two of my absolute favorites are mushrooms and bread pudding. So, one afternoon I thought why not combine them? This recipe is a savory, earthy and hearty bread pudding perfect for enjoying on a cool autumn afternoon.

The now not so secret ingredient in this recipe is Casina Rossa mushroom-truffle pate. I was introduced to this gem at a local store In Bethlehem called Seasons Olive Oil and Vinegar Taproom. You only need include a small amount for an amazing infusion of rich delicate mushroom flavor.

First, prepare the custard. Six cups of plain almond milk, four eggs, two tablespoons of the mushroom-truffle pate, salt and pepper. Whisk together well.

Coat a nine by eleven baking dish with your favorite non-dairy butter substitute or olive oil.

Cube up one loaf of day old sour dough bread and place into the nine by eleven baking dish. Pour the mixture over the bread cubes and allow to rest to absorb for a couple of hours.

Aren’t these mushrooms beautiful? Found them at my favorite stand at the Easton Farmers’ Market, Primordia Mushroom Farm. I buy their mushrooms up by the pound every chance I get. Here I have creminis and two types of oysters.

Time to go out on the deck and pick a few sprigs each of thyme, basil and oregano. Love having my herbs growing right outside the kitchen door!

Rough chop the mushrooms and the herbs to top off the bread pudding. No need to be precise, rustic is good.

Top the bread pudding generously with the mushrooms and herbs. Yes, it is under there, I promise. Now is a good time to get the oven preheated to 350*. Once preheated, into the oven the bread pudding goes to bake forty-five to sixty minutes until the top is browned and the center is nice and firm.

When it comes out of the oven, it is a fine example of food as art. Enjoy all on its own or as a side dish. I think this would make an excellent addition to the Thanksgiving dinner table. This is a beautiful dish sure to warm your soul.
