Prep Time 15 mins Cook Time 40-50 mins Difficulty Easy Serves 10
1 tbsp olive oil
OR 100g ham
OR 100g tofu
1/2 onion chopped
2 garlic cloves
1/2 loaf stale bread of your choice
1 cup milk
1 cup shredded tasty cheese
2 tsp thyme
2 tsp rosemary
2 tsp parsley
1/2 cup parmesan cheese
butter (to line muffin tins)
Prep Ingredients: Dice the bacon, chop the onion, crush the garlic and grate the parmesan cheese.
Preheat the oven to 180° C.
In a small frying pan heat the oil over medium heat. Add the bacon/ham and onion once the pan is hot and cook for 2-3 minutes. Add the crushed garlic and continue stirring for an additional minute until everything is well combined. Set aside to cool
If the bread is still soft, toast it slightly until crisp.
In a separate bowl combine eggs, milk, tasty cheese, salt, pepper and herbs.
Break the bread into chunks and combine with the egg mixture. The bacon should now be cool so combine that to the full mixture as well.
Add the egg, bread and bacon mixture to each muffin tin, ensuring an even spread of bread and liquid.
Cover each muffin tin with a generous layer of parmesan. Cover the muffin tin with aluminium foil and bake for 20 minutes.
After 20 minutes, remove the foil and bake for an additional 20-30 minutes. The puddings should be browned on top and a toothpick inserted down the middle should come out clean.
Gluten-free adaptation: Use stale gluten-free bread for best results.
