so many flavors

what to do when you have bread going stale? bread pudding! it’s not just a dessert my friends. in fact my favorite form of bread pudding are the savory ones. i decided to try my hand at a summery bread pudding for meatless monday. i toasted up one of my leftover french loaves creating giant croutons. the next layer was cherry tomatoes of various colors mixed in with garlic and basil. then i poured my egg mixture on top and the final layer was tons of goat cheese. i also mixed a ginger-carrot salad to go along with the bread pudding. i decided it was a success when my dinner guest went back not only for seconds but also thirds!
