Leek and Stilton Bread and Butter Pudding

Leek and Stilton Bread and Butter Pudding

Bread and Butter pudding is one of Britain's most traditional and loved desserts, and I couldn't resist putting a savoury spin on this classic using my favourite cheese, Stilton.


The original recipe came from a past edition of BBC Good Food magazine. Let me warn you though it is very filling but also very easy to adapt with other ingredients. 

LEEK AND STILTON BREAD AND BUTTER PUDDING
Ingredients:
8 slices Granary Bread
TBSP Dijon Mustard
Butter
2 Leeks
200g Stilton
200g Cheddar
3 eggs
500ml Milk
Seasoning and Parsley to serve

Method:
Step 1: Fry leeks in a little oil until soft.
Step 2: Butter and mustard one side of each slice of bread and cut each slice into quarters
Step 3: Mix together the eggs. milk, salt and pepper to make an egg custard.
Step 4: Lay third of bread on the bottom of an ovenproof dish (butter side up), top with a third of leeks and third of cheeses. Pour over a third of egg custard mixture.
Step 5: Repeat the process until all ingredients have been used up. Leave to soak for 20 minutes
Step 6: Preheat oven to 190 and bake for 30-40 minutes.

  4. I just love savory bread puddings and yours looks divine. I have to run next store and ask my British neighbor what Granary bread is though!

  5. That looks so comforting. Bet it tasted wonderful. I find dishes with blue cheese very rich too, so can imagine a small slice would have gone a long way!

  7. Oh, that is immediately going into my bookmarks to make next week. I hope I get leeks from the farm. I have a question though, I'm not sure I can get granary bread here, any ideas for a substitution? Would whole wheat work?

  8. I must make this! It will have to be in miniature form as Phil will not touch Stilton with a ten foot pole. (I always knew that there was something wrong with him)Now for me to work on scaling down the ingredients to make a tiny bread pudding.
