Leftover Bread part 2: Bread Pudding

Story location: Home / food_and_drink /
16/Mar/2016

Yesterday I made both the bread frittata and a bread pudding. The former was eaten for lunch, the latter was put straight in the fridge last night and we had half of it as part of our pudding after tea tonight.

Ingredients

  • Bread, 200g
  • milk, 150ml
  • dried fruit (cranberries, blueberries, sultanas), 100g
  • sugar, 50g, extra for topping
  • eggs, 1
  • butter, 50g, extra for topping
  • spices (cinnamon, ginger, mixed spice), 2 tsp in total
  • orange zest

Method

The method was very similar to the frittata. The milk and egg were whisked together. The butter was melted and allowed to cool down before being stirred in, then the dried fruit, sugar, spices and bread were mixed in. Everything was poured into an 8 inch tin. The top was dotted with pieces of butter and extra sugar was sprinkled on. Again, the tin was covered with foil and baked, also at gas mark 4, for 45 minutes this time. The foil was removed about 10 minutes before the end.

Leftover Bread part 1: Frittata

Story location: Home / food_and_drink /
15/Mar/2016

We have a bag in the freezer which is filled with scraps of bread leftover from various loaves. I decided it was time to find something to do with them. I wondered if it was possible to do a frittata/tortilla using bread instead of potatoes or other vegetables. I found a few recipes, all using different vegetables and quantities of bread and other ingredients. I used the leftovers from tonight's tea, along with some cocktail sausages from the weekend.

Ingredients

  • 100 g bread, cut into small pieces
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tbs milk
  • 100g assorted cooked vegetables (I used onion, pepper, rice and sweetcorn)
  • 3 cocktail sausages, chopped small
  • salt, pepper and smoked paprika seasoning.

Method

I beat the eggs and milk together, stirred in all the other ingredients and poured the mixture into a greased and lined 8 inch tin. This was covered in foil and baked at gas mark 4 (180°C) for about half an hour.

Bread Frittata

The frittata was put in the fridge overnight ready for me to take for lunch tomorrow.

Update 16/03/2016

I had the frittata for lunch in work. It had gone firm enough to pick up and eat, making it ideal for picnics or packed lunches.
