Okay, this is not your traditional bread dressing. But, I made this for something different last year and it was AMAZING!!! I did not have any
leftovers after serving Thanksgiving Dinner if that tells you anything. ALL GONE!!! Now that you have me thinking about it, I think I will make this
again this year....
Scarborough Fair - Savoury Bacon, Onion and Herb Bread Pudding
1 loaf of your favorite bread, crusts removed
1 ¼ cups hot vegetable, chicken or ham stock
4 large onions, peeled and finely chopped
1 cup smoked bacon, cut into small pieces
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
1/4 teaspoon chopped fresh sage
1/4 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary
1/2 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme
3 large eggs, beaten
6 tablespoons melted butter
Prep Time: 1 hr
Total Time: 2 hrs
1. Pre-heat oven to 375F degrees.
2. Grease a large baking dish or tray about 12" by 8" in size.
3. Tear the bread into small pieces and pour the hot stock over the bread - mix well and allow to soak for about 1 hour.
4. Meanwhile, cook the bacon over a medium to high heat; as soon as the fat starts to run, add the chopped onions. Stirring the bacon and onions
constantly, cook them together for about 15-20 minutes, or until the onions are soft and the bacon is crisp.
5. Add the bacon and onion mixture to the soaked bread and mix well.
6. Add the rest of the ingredients - continue to mix them together thoroughly.
7. Pour the bread pudding into the greased dish or tray, level the mixture out with a spoon and bake for 40 to 50 minutes until well risen, firm to
the touch and golden brown.
8. Take out of the oven and allow to "rest" for 5 minutes before cutting into squares.
