Bread and Cheese Pudding
Recipe for 4
Prep time: 10 min
Cook time: 25 min
350 g white bread
2 tbsp. soft butter (optional)
1 dl dry white wine (alternatively use white grape juice with a few drops of lemon in it)
3 dl milk
2 large eggs
150g semi hard cheese (Gruyere, Emmetaler…)
¾ tsp. salt
2 dl cream
Heat oven at 240°C.
Slice the bread into 1-1.5cm thick pieces. Optionally, butter each slice on one side with the butter and toast in the oven for about 5 min. Once done reduce the oven heat to 200°C. Place the bread slices in a baking dish by overlapping them.
In a bowl mix the milk with the eggs, salt and pepper.
Stiffly whisk the cream and gently fold it in with the milk/egg mix.
Pour over the bread slices and bake in the oven for 20 min.
Serve with a crunchy salad.
