Savory Gruyere and Corn Relish Bread Pudding

April 19, 2012

Corn Bread Pudding sm 1

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 🙂
