What to do with the French baguette that was so delicious yesterday and is now stale and hard? Well, usually, I like to keep it in the pantry until it grows some mould and then I feel ok about throwing it out. But today I turned it into something yummy again.

Based on this Bread Pudding recipe, you’ll need:

  • 4 eggs
  • 2 cups milk
  • Half a baguette, cubed
  • Three cooked rashers of bacon, chopped
  • teaspoon of thyme
  • salt and pepper
  • grated cheese

Whisk the eggs and milk and seasoning together, then add the bread. Let it soak together for half an hour in the fridge.

Then mix in the bacon pieces, sprinkle cheese on top, and pop into the oven at 325 degrees for half an hour.

Get ready to eat them soon after they come out of the oven, when they are all puffed up and golden and delicious!
