Storage onions are low in water and high in sulfur, so they store well and are available year-round. Storage onions are more pungent and flavorful than sweet onions, and they're best if cooked.

  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil, plus more for the baking dish
  • 1 Tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 3 large sweet onions (such as Vidalia or Maui) or Spanish onions, halved and thinly sliced (6 cups)
  • ½ Pound mushrooms, thinly sliced
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 Cups whole milk
  • 1 Cup heavy cream
  • 1½ Teaspoon coarse (kosher) salt
  • ½ Teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • ½ Teaspoon crumbled dried sage
  • 1 baguette (about 8 ounces), halved lengthwise and cut crosswise into 1-inch pieces
  • 8 Ounces Fontina cheese (preferably Italian), cut into 1-inch cubes


In a large, deep skillet, heat the oil and butter over medium heat. Add the onions and cook for 35 minutes, stirring occasionally, until golden brown and soft. Add the mushrooms and cook for 5 to 7 minutes, or until the mushrooms are tender.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Brush a 9-by-13-inch baking dish with oil.

In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, cream, salt, pepper, and sage. Add the bread, the onion mixture, and Fontina and stir to combine.

Pour the mixture into the baking dish, pressing so the bread is covered with liquid, and set aside to soak for at least 10 minutes, until the bread has absorbed most of the liquid.

Bake for 35 minutes, or until the bread is crisp and the custard is set. Serve hot or at room temperature.

Savory Bread Pudding

This all-in-one casserole, with its soft, creamy texture, can be served for breakfast, lunch, dinner — or all three! In fact, it was such a huge hit out of our test kitchen that many people asked for a sneak peek at the recipe. Although simple, our secret to this custard-y entrée is making it with soft white sandwich bread a pain de mie, with its straight sides and tighter crumb, is especially suitable.


  • 1 pound pork sausage meat
  • 2 tablespoons (28g) butter
  • 1 1/2 cups (170g) yellow onion, peeled and cut in 1/2" dice (about 1 medium onion)
  • 8 ounces button mushrooms, stems removed and sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced or 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1 tablespoon herbes de Provence
  • 1/4 cup (57g) white wine, chicken stock, or vegetable stock
  • 2 cups (227g) grated cheddar cheese, divided
  • 8 cups (454g) cubed leftover bread, pain de mie or soft white sandwich bread are good options
  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 large egg yolks
  • 2 cups (454g) milk
  • 1 cup (227g) heavy cream


In a large skillet over medium-high heat, sauté the sausage meat, breaking it up, until the sausage is cooked through, about 6 to 8 minutes. Drain the fat and transfer the cooked sausage meat to a bowl set aside.

Return the pan to the burner, and heat the butter until it melts. Add the onion and mushrooms and cook until they start to soften, about 5 minutes.

Add the garlic, 1/2 teaspoon of the salt, and herbes de Provence, cooking for another minute or two until fragrant.

Add the white wine or stock to deglaze the pan, and cook until almost completely reduced.

Transfer the vegetables to the bowl with the sausage, and allow to cool to room temperature.

Toss the meat/vegetable mixture with 1 1/2 cups of the cheese and all of the bread.

Spread the mixture into a buttered 9" x 13" pan or 3-quart baking dish set aside.

Whisk the eggs and yolks in a large bowl. Add the remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt, milk, and cream, continuing to whisk.

Pour the egg mixture into the pan, cover, and refrigerate for at least 1 hour or up to overnight.

Top the pudding with the remaining 1/2 cup of cheese. Bake the pudding for 55 to 65 minutes, until it's puffed, lightly browned, and a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.

Let the pudding cool for 15 minutes or so, and serve warm.

Wrap any leftover pudding tightly with plastic and refrigerate. Reheat individual servings in the microwave or the whole pan, covered with foil, in a 250°F oven.

Ina Garten’s Savory Twist on Bread Pudding Is the Perfect Side for Your Micro-Thankgiving Dinner

Thanksgiving is officially around the corner. And yes, this holiday season will look different for us all, but that doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy our annual share of turkey on our tables. A few of our favorite chefs have shared their tips on how to ensure a great Thanksgiving dinner (regardless of how many people are present). From Giada De Laurentiis’ five (tailored to your unique Thanksgiving experience) menus to Martha Stewart’s must-have holiday kitchen utensils we’ve gotten prepped to tackle the holidays this season on our own. And now, our food queen Ina Garten has ditched the traditional Turkey stuffing and opted for a creamier side: Herb & Apple Bread Pudding.

“For my Micro Thanksgiving this year (4 people!), I&rsquom making my Herb & Apple Bread Pudding,” Garten wrote on Instagram.

“Instead of stuffing the turkey, which requires you to cook it for more time which can dry out a turkey, this savory bread pudding bakes separately but has all the flavor of traditional stuffing – creamy bread and vegetables on the bottom, with lots of crunchy, cheesy bits on top,” she captioned the post.

While bread pudding is typically a sweet dessert, we are really into Garten’s savory twist. Prepped with apples, pancetta, chicken stock, and cheese &mdash this bread pudding will be nothing short of absolutely flavorful.

While it is without-a-doubt delicious, this easy-to-make recipe will be popped in and out of your oven over the course of two hours, so it’s best not to cook when you have your kiddo’s hungry bellies in your home desperately waiting to get their grub on.

Step 2: Make the Custard

In a large bowl, combine 7 large eggs, 2-1/2 cups half-and-half, 1/2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce, 2 to 3 Tbs. chopped fresh herbs (choose from: basil, chervil, chives, cilantro, mint, oregano, parsley, and/or thyme), 1⁄2 tsp. kosher salt, and freshly ground black pepper to taste. Whisk to combine. If you like, whisk in an optional aromatic (choose from: 2 tsp. chopped capers, 2 tsp. Dijon mustard, 1 to 2 tsp. prepared horseradish, 1 tsp. lemon or lime zest, or 2 Tbs. finely chopped sun-dried tomatoes).

Savory Bread & Butter Pudding

This is the fourth of five finalist recipes for the Dairy Contest, the winner of which will be announced this Monday (Labor Day!) This recipe, submitted by Dani, appealed to me on many levels, not the least of which was that it resembles a similar recipe I&rsquove made before, which I love and gobble up unabashedly. This particular recipe had a couple of twists, of course, and used plain yogurt in the custard mixture, which translated to a light, delicious breakfast bread pudding fitting enough for lunch and dinner, too. Let&rsquos make it and you&rsquoll see what I mean.

The recipe starts with 8 eggs. Crack, crack, crack&hellipnine times.

To the eggs, I added 1 cup of milk.

And 1 cup of plain, unflavored yogurt.

Then I gave it a whisk. *WHISK*

I measured 1 cup shredded colby-jack cheese, but the recipe says to use whatever grated or crumbled cheese you have. &ldquoI personally believe&rdquo that blue cheese would be yummy.

I like to say &ldquoI personally believe&rdquo at least four times daily.

Then I added in some Dijon mustard.

Next, I grabbed 6 slices of stale bread. Okay, it wasn&rsquot stale. Nothing gets stale around my house, &rsquocause everyone eats everything up as soon as I bring it into the house. But I think what the submitter of the recipe was saying was, it&rsquos okay to use bread that ain&rsquot all that fresh anymore. I think a crusty french bread would be yummy, too.

According to the recipe, I cut the slices of bread into quarters.

I had some bacon left over from breakfast, which was a miracle. An anomaly. An aberration.

I grabbed two tomatoes from my garden, lopped off the tops, and cut them in half lengthwise.

Then I made thick slices, which wound up being half-moon shaped.

The recipe called for a small bunch of silver beet/chard/spinach, so I grabbed whatever green I could find. It&rsquoll work.

To assemble the dish, I buttered a pan.

And scattered in the bread.

Next, I chopped the bacon (I used peppered&hellipcan you tell?) and sprinkled it over the bread&hellip

Followed by the tomato slices. Ugh, this looks good.

And finally, the egg/milk/yogurt/cheese mixture to pull it all together.

After baking for 30 minutes on 350 degrees, here&rsquos what it looked like.

Oh, dear. This looks very promising.

And the verdict? It didn&rsquot disappoint. It was delicious. And handy, too&mdashaccording to Dani, you can use the basic recipe as a way of using whatever leftover bread, meat, and vegetables you have on hand.

Only one more recipe to go before the winner is chosen and announced on Labor Day. It&rsquos getting close&hellip
