Breakfast Pudding

She is having so much fun.
While at the library I found a book called Breakfast Blast. I thought it would be a great book to get ideas for new foods for Audrey and I to have for breakfast. Mostly it is full of the usual suspects. Each recipe includes pictures of teens cooking that meal so I get the impression that the the age group the book was written for. Not a great resource for us but I did find this good recipe:

Breakfast Pudding

  • 1 slice of whole wheat bread
  • 1 slice of ham or pre-cooked bacon
  • 1/2 cup of one or 1/4 cup of two of the following fruits, vegetables, or herbs: green pepper, mushroom, onion, tomato, zucchini, apple, and parsley
  • 1/4 cup grated cheese
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • a pinch of salt
  • a sprinkle of nutmeg
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Lightly grease a small baking dish. Tear the bread into pieces and put the pieces into the dish. Put the bacon or ham pieces on top of the bread. Chop the fruits, vegetables, or herbs into bite-sized pieces and layer them on top of the ham, If you are using onion, mushroom, pepper, or zucchini pieces, saute them first in a teaspoon of oil. Sprinkle the cheese on top of the vegetables. Whisk together the egg, milk, and salt. Pour the mixture over the other ingredients. Sprinkle with a little nutmeg. Bake for 40 to 50 minutes or until the pudding is puffed up and golden. Do a toothpick test to make sure it is done in the center. The toothpick should come out clean. Serve the pudding with tomato or pepper slices and lettuce greens.

Audrey's Tasks:
  1. Tear the bread and put it in the dish
  2. Slice the ham and red pepper
  3. Crumble the cheese and add
  4. Crack the egg and mix with milk
  5. Add to dish
Mom's Tasks:
  1. Gather ingredients
  2. Place in oven
Audrey got to do a great deal of this meal. She always loves to cook with eggs.
