I served it with “The Best Pork Loin Ever!” but it would be very nice with roast chicken or grilled flat-iron steak.
Savory Bread Pudding
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees
15 slices or about 8 cups Texas Toast
1 12oz. package Frozen Chopped Broccoli (thawed)
1 1/2 cups Whole Milk
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
8 rashers of Bacon
Salt & Pepper
1 teaspoon Chili Flakes
Cut the bread into roughly 2 inch chunks leaving the crust on and place in a very large mixing bowl. Add the thawed broccoli.
In a separate bowl mix together the milk, eggs, parmesan cheese, salt & pepper and chili flakes.
Pour over the bread and mix until the bread is well coated with the egg mixture.
Pour into a large buttered baking dish and top with the bacon.
Bake for 40-50 minutes. Cover with foil if the top browns too quickly.
