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. 

8 slices Granary Bread
TBSP Dijon Mustard
2 Leeks
200g Stilton
200g Cheddar
3 eggs
500ml Milk
Seasoning and Parsley to serve

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.


  1. Wow, that looks great and I agree that it is a perfect rainy day dish! It is still raining here *sigh*

  2. You had me at "Pudding."
    I need to try Stilton...I don't think I've had it before.
    I like strong cheeses.

  3. Beth that looks simply yummy and perfect like you say for rainy days like the ones we keep having!


  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!

  6. I literally oohed and aahed when I saw your picture. That looks phenomenal. Writing it down and won't be able to think of anything else till I make it.

  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.

  9. What a comforting dish for a rainy day! I bet the stilton is great in this pudding! YUM!

  10. I have never seen a savory recipe for bread pudding. I have to admit I very intrigued. I am adding this to my "try soon" list!

  11. Beth what's really nice pudding!! look so yummy Gloria

  12. Kat - Whole wheat would be fine, or white for that matter!

  13. Thanks Beth. I can't wait to try it

  14. A fabulous variation on an old favourite. I really need to try this.

  15. I can't stop thinking about this stuff. I came back just to gawk....

  16. Wowee does that ever look goooood!
    I am so very tempted, need to get leeks!

  17. Ooh, that's a new one on me - savoury B&B pudding. I love it! Looks like ultimate comfort food

  18. What a tasty creation you have here Beth and just perfect for the weather we've been having lately!

  19. Beth - we made this last night & it was great. I blogged about it today & linked back to you.

  20. Mmm... leeks and stilton, two of my favourite things. It looks gorgeous, Beth!

  21. This looks wonderful- I love Stilton too- and I believe I just may try it yet today! ;-)

Honey and Peanut Butter Flapjacks

These flapjacks are now my official weekday grab and go breakfast. I make a big batch on Sunday evening and I'm all set for the week. Oddly I don't really like peanut butter but it works well in this recipe. You can always substitute it for an extra 100g of ordinary butter if you wanted. A handful of raisins makes a nice addition too.

Golden Syrup and Oat Cookies

My Mum used to make these moreish buttery cookies all the time and they bring back great childhood memories of licking the syrup spoon clean. They take less than 10 minutes to make and 10 minutes in the oven so they are super speedy for busy days...and most importantly the kids love them.

Slow Cooker Chilli Con Carne (No Browning Required)

My slow cooker is my best friend on week days, especially when it's a recipe like this Chilli Con Carne that requires NO pre browning of the meat. It takes all of 3 minutes to 'make' before leaving the slow cooker to do all the hard work during the day. Then, when you get in from a long day at work and the kids are starving, all you need to do is cook some rice and grate some cheese! If you have any leftovers you can stir them into cooked pasta the next day along with some creme fraiche and grated cheddar for a super simple chilli pasta bake. Everyone in my house loves this recipe...well apart from the kidney beans which the kids aren't too keen on!

TOP TIPS FOR MAKING SLOW COOKER CHILLI CON CARNEIf your children actually like kidney beans (mine usually pick them out) add another tin for extra fibre.Instead of adding the spices separately you could buy a Chilli Con Carne spice sachet (e.g. Schwartz) and use that instead.If you like a bit of heat add a tsp of dried chi…

Family Favourite Minced Beef Cobbler

An easy, filling and relatively frugal meal that the whole family will enjoy, even the fussiest of children. I love savoury cobblers, there's something very comforting about them, especially when you top the scones with plenty of cheddar cheese like I do in this recipe. This minced beef cobbler features heavily on our meal plans during the winter months and I like to serve it with seasonal veggies, or failing that some peas from the freezer (to be fair it's usually peas from freezer!!). My lot would quite happily gobble a bowl of this on it's own though. It's most definitely a keeper in this house!

TIPS FOR MAKING THE MINCED BEEF COBBLERUp the veggies by adding peppers, mushrooms and courgettes to the mince.Make a veggie version by omitting the bacon and using Quorn mince instead.Double the recipe if you're feeding a crowd.Add a tablespoon of caramelised onion chutney to the mince to give it an extra rich flavour.Serve with seasonal veggies (or peas from the freez…
