Ratatouille Bread Pudding

Ratatouille Bread Pudding

The traditional Provençal combination of eggplant, zucchini, tomatoes, garlic, and onions flavors this dish. You can also try sheep's milk Pecorino-Romano cheese in place of Parmesan if you like its distinctly sharper taste.

  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 2 cups chopped onion (about 2 medium)
  • 2 cups (1-inch) cubed peeled eggplant (about 6 ounces)
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped zucchini (about 12 ounces)
  • 1 cup chopped red bell pepper (about 1 medium)
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

  • 8 ounces (1-inch) cubed day-old Italian bread (about 9 cups)

Preparation

Preheat oven to 350°.

Heat oil in a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add onion; reduce heat to medium-low. Cover and cook 10 minutes or until golden brown, stirring occasionally. Add eggplant and next 6 ingredients (through garlic); cover and cook 10 minutes or until tender, stirring occasionally. Increase heat to medium-high. Add tomatoes; cook, uncovered, 15 minutes or until liquid almost evaporates, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat; cool slightly.

Combine milk, 1/4 cup cheese, eggs, and egg whites in a large bowl, stirring with a whisk. Stir in eggplant mixture. Add bread; stir gently to combine. Let stand 10 minutes. Spoon mixture into a 2-quart baking dish coated with cooking spray. Sprinkle pudding with the remaining 1/2 cup cheese. Bake at 350° for 45 minutes or until pudding is set and lightly browned.
