Savory Gruyere and Corn Relish Bread Pudding

April 19, 2012

This recipe was developed with my Farmer’s Market customers in mind.  So many will ask me, well what do you do with this?  How can I incorporate this into my meals?   I researched some recipes on line and found a fabulous one that was written up in the LA Times which I have linked for you below.   I eliminated the ham entirely to keep this meatless, used the herbs I had here in my garden, and substituted a jar of my corn relish for the called-for carrots in the original.   This makes a hearty, sturdy bread pudding which makes a delightful side dish served with green salad or placed alongside a beautiful cut of beef.  The recipe called for using a bain-marie which is an age-old process for cooking with a gentle, steady heat and adds a smoothness to the end product.

The jarred corn relish gives this pudding a slight tang of vinegar, I just love it and hope that you will too!

  2. I lurrve lemon balm! Thank you so much for your lovely compliments. I only have 16 subscribers to my blog…thank god I am self motivated!!! It means the world to me that you appreciate what I am doing–I hope you get to try this one. I am sure the recipe can be halved as it makes so much, you would have to freeze half of it for just you and Larry. I did not use cream either as the original called for, but I am sure Gruyere needs to be a once a month thing too 🙂
