    I followed the recipe exactly. I used the Italian sausage that my local market makes in house. We thought this had a delicious flavor. I plan on making it Christmas morning.

    This dish is a family favorite! The sweetness of the sausage and onions even earns five stars from my two year old.

    My husband and I both loved this! Great comfort food on a rainy night. I followed the recipe exactly and had no problems. I might add more onion next time, since it reduces so much when it caramelizes.

    We loved this whole meal! My husband was a bit turned off when he saw it was bread pudding for dinner. But after he had a first bite, he loved it! I substituted the 1% milk with Smart Source Skim Milk (tastes like 1%), all the eggs for egg beaters (white and regular), and I used chicken sausage. I served it with sautéed zucchini and yellow squash seasoned with S & P. I would make this again because it is pretty quick and makes hearty servings.

    I added some sage and substituted chicken sausage. I ouldn't taste the cheese, so not sure if it was worth the extra calories. Texture and "comfort food" factor were definitely there, but it just seemed like there was some flavor element missing here. It was good for a weeknight dinner, but or the amount of time it takes, would probably not make it again.

    I made this receipe last night and it turned out pretty good. I did substitute soy milk for cow milk and I added afinely chopped apple, I ddn't have apples juice. I used sage sausage, It turned out yummy.

    There was something missing......herbs, spice? I can't put my finger on it but the dish was just a little flat. It was still very good but not outstanding. I followed the recipe exactly and served it with a crisp green salad on the side. I'm not sure why the recipe says 3 oz cheese, DIVIDED, since the instructions don't call for it to be added in more than one step.

    This recipe was very simple and yummy! We had the leftovers the next day. I microwaved them for about one minute, then popped them in the toaster oven for three. I thought the recipe was even better the next day!

    Was attracted by concept of a savory bread pudding. We liked it but, as others indicated, it needs something more. We'll used spicy italian sausage but will play with extra spices next time (sage, rosemary, oregano, etc) . I used skim milk which seemed to work fine. I also used bread that was several days old - very stale - and added a splash of extra milk to compensate which worked fine. I believe a second could be made and stuck in the freezer prior to cooking, doubling the benefit w/ the same effort.

    I'm a big fan of this basic bread pudding. Next time I'll double the onions, and up the cheese just a bit. Great with super spicy sausage!

    This recipe is a staple for me. I have subbed half a chopped apple and a table spoon of cider vinegar for cider I have used many different kinds of bread I generally use a whole lb of sausage meat but it can be made your own and is just amazing.

    This was really good, even as leftovers (pop in the microwave for 30 seconds). I doubled the sausage (2 links of Jennie-O turkey hot Italian sausage) and added two extra ounces of bread. I also added paprika and extra salt to the batter. I cut into 6 portions instead of 4 and served with a side of veggies.

    I have made this several times and its always a hit. If you use the Jennie-O sweet Italian turkey sausage it works great as a brunch side dish. Or I make it with spicy sausage for dinner.
