I followed directions except instead of dividing into portions, I baked in a 8" square baking dish for about 35 minutes at 375 degrees. No water bath. Turned out beautifully and was so flavorful.
I followed the recipe verbatim, as I always do, but the bread didn't soak up the milk in the 20 minutes so it cooked with dry bread on top and something resembling scrambled egg mixture in the bottom. We found this to be too much fussing for a week night meal and won't be making it again. The list if ingredients have potential though for someone willing to work out the kinks.
I wasn't a big fan of this recipe. Too much work & time for the taste.
This was good, but I perfer the CL Marian's Savory Vegetable Bread Pudding recipe over this one.
I made this recipe for my husband and myself for Christmas morning brunch. In the past I have made decadent brunch recipes for us on Christmas morning but this time I decided this receipe sounded so good I would try to be healthy yet still have great flavor and it was WONDERFUL! I will definitely make this again.
