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 puddings, and I couldn't resist putting a savoury spin on this classic using one of my favourite cheeses, Stilton. This savoury bread and butter pudding recipe is very filling and perfect with a crispy green salad on the side!


TOP TIPS FOR MAKING LEEK AND STILTON BREAD AND BUTTER PUDDING

  • Use different cheeses such as Gruyere and cheddar.
  • Make it meaty by adding some cooked bacon or chicken.
  • If you don't like granary bread, use white bread instead.

  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.
