Savory Mushroom Bread Pudding

2:45:00

This golden and eggy Savory Mushroom Bread Pudding, with its flecks of vegetables and herbs is EXACTLY why I love the fall. I could go on about brightly coloured fall leaves, pumpkins, and apple desserts, but in the end, this glorious casserole wins my heart this fall.

STEP 1
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

Slice crust from Country White Bread (1 pound) and cut into 1-inch cubes to yield 10 cups loosely packed cubes.
STEP 4
Mince the Garlic (1 clove).
STEP 5
Chop the Fresh Thyme (4 teaspoon).
STEP 6
In a large bowl, toss bread with Olive Oil (1/4 cup), thyme, garlic, and Salt and Pepper (1 pinch).
STEP 7
Spread evenly in a single layer on a large baking tray and bake for 18 to 20 minutes until golden, turning once or twice. Remove from oven and return bread cubes to same large bowl.

STEP 9
Dice the Onion (1 cup).

Thinly slice the Mushroom (1 pound)
STEP 12
Heat Unsalted Butter (1/4 cup) in a large skillet until foamy.
