Savory Bread Pudding #HolidayLeftovers #SundayFunday

 

Today we're in our fourth week of a new blogging group; a fun group will be sharing recipes on Sundays. Low stress, just a great group of gals that I am happy to blog alongside. Thanks to Stacy of Food Lust People Love, Sue of Palatable Pastime, Rebekah of Making Miracles, and Wendy of A Day in the Life on the Farm for coordinating.  Today Stacy is hosting and she's given us the prompt of using holiday leftovers. Perfect timing really as we are still sheltered in place, and just had the four of us around the table, but I didn't really adjust the sizes of what I usually make. Whoops.

In any case, here's the line-up of how the #SundayFunday bloggers are using their holiday leftovers...

Stuffing Repurposed

Here's my stuffing in its first iteration: as stuffing on our Thanksgiving plate, doused with a sweet paprika gravy.


And here it is as an individually-portioned bread pudding. My trio totally leveled up on the revamp by adding a dollop of mashed sweet potatoes and topping it with a gravy. Yeah, okay...it was pretty awesome, if I might say so myself. For this, use whatever version of stuffing (or dressing, if you call it that!) that you  have in your fridge. You don't need any extra seasoning because the stuffing is already seasoned. It's super simple and wonderfully tasty. 

Ingredients serves 6

  • 6 cups leftover stuffing
  • 3 eggs
  • Also needed: butter for greasing the muffin pan; mashed sweet potatoes and/or gravy for serving


Procedure

Butter the muffin pan - or whatever you plan to use for baking - and preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Place the stuffing and eggs in a medium mixing bowl. With a wooden spoon or your hands, combine the stuffing and the eggs until evenly coated.

Scoop 1 cup of stuffing into each muffin hollow and gently compress the mixture to it forms to the shape of the pan.

Place the pan in the oven and bake for 30 minutes.


After 30 minutes, the bread pudding should be firm to the touch and slightly raised. Let cool in the pan for 5 minutes before running a butter knife around the edge and gently unmolding each portion.


Serve warm with a topping of sweet potatoes and/or gravy. And I served it with a Cornish game hen salad on the side. This was a super simple lunch when we came back from chopping down our Christmas tree. 


The holidays are definitely upon us, even though this year is vastly different with no friends and family around as we continue to shelter in place in the hopes of stopping this pandemic.

Next week the bloggers will return with cookie  recipes for Santa with Wendy of A Day in the Life on the Farm hosting. Stay tuned...

  1. Great way to use up that stuffing. I might just have to make more stuffing soon just so I can have this version.

  2. I love that you made individual puddings, Camilla. Those are always so much more festive plus my favorite part of any savory baked good is always the golden outside edges which are maximized here!

  3. I've been waiting to see this one. I suppose there are no worries if I make my stack with the sweet potatoes, crumbled chorizo, poached egg and then the gravy for breakfast. Oh and they don't give us carts for trees around here. They make us drag it trunk first across the ground, and if we don't get there before it rains (or snows, as it will this week) it will likely get really muddy. Snow tomorrow. I need to get a move on for that tree!

    1. We always hike to the furthest spot of the tree farm. Without a cart, they might actually pick one that was closer to the truck. LOL.

  4. This is the cutest leftovers idea! Love that you used a muffin pan to bake up individual portions!

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

Quick Pickled Red Onions and Radishes

If you've been reading my blog for even a short amount of time, you probably know how much I love to pickle things. I was just telling a friend you can pickle - with vinegar - or you can ferment - with salt - for similar delicious effect. The latter has digestive benefits and I love to do that, but when I need that pop of sour flavor quickly, I whip up quick pickles that are ready in as little as a day or two. I've Pickled Blueberries , Pickled Asparagus , Pickled Cranberries , Pickled Pumpkin , and even Pickled Chard Stems ! This I did last night for an upcoming recipe challenge that requires I include radishes. Ummmm...of course I'm pickling them! Ingredients  makes 1 quart jar radishes, trimmed and sliced organic red onions, peeled and thinly sliced (I used a mandolin slicer) 3/4 C vinegar (I used white distilled vinegar) 3/4 C water 3 T organic granulated sugar 1 T salt (I used some grey sea salt) 6 to 8 grinds of black pepper Proce

#comfortfood: Jamie Oliver's Ossobuco with Bean Ragout

As one of Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution Day Ambassadors ( I'm the Monterey #FRD2014 rep! ) I will be sent a copy of his latest cookbook - to cook from and write about. I can't wait. I do have to laugh though, because its title is  Comfort Food . And, according to a good friend:  I only make uncomfortable food . Oh, well. I can learn! To celebrate launch day - today - I'm sharing one of the recipes. Here's Jamie Oliver's Ossobuco alla Milanese recipe from his new cookbook, Comfort Food. And here's my adaptation. I typically don't eat veal, so I went to our local butcher for some lamb shanks sliced into an osso buco-style cut; but they had just sold their last shanks. Darn. But then I noticed the "never tethered...free to roam" on the veal package and decided to go for it. I added in shelling beans to make a ragout and served it over wild rice instead of risotto. Also, I used lots of different herbs in my gremolata instead of just pa
