As mentioned yesterday, I made the Whole Wheat Bread thrice. Though we had some slices slathered with nutella, I also made a savoury pudding with the bread. With onions, tomatoes and cheddar cheese, it made a filling breakfast. This is an eggless version and I have used corn flour to bind the pudding. I have made a sweet version of bread pudding with choco chips and tutti frutti before. And so I tried a savoury version now. I usually grate cheese in a grater, but this time, I just chopped it into cubes and used a hand mixer to process it. And I was so happy with that. It was easy to process while compared to grating in a grater.
My daughter does not like these types of dishes. She only prefers chocolate and what ever form a chocolate takes, she would be happy to gobble it down. So I didn’t even bother to ask her if she would taste. I used a lot of cheese and it tasted so nice. Instead of adding green chillies, I should have added red chilly powder to make it spicy. My husband had it with tomato ketchup.
This pudding is incredibly easy to put together. Saute onions, tomatoes and green chillies and mix with bread and cheese, arrange in a pan and pour the corn flour mixture. Top with more cheese and bake. Serve it hot and I am sure you will love it. Make sure to use a day old bread. Very soft bread may become so soft with the addition of milk. And while slicing, slice the bread into thick slices and then cube them. The pudding will have a crispier crust and soft inside.

Hi lovely recipe and very tempting to make right away…have 2 doubts can I add egg to this ..also can I reduce the cheese and replace.it with something else …also.is it ok to use mozzarella cheese instead ..will it make a difference …
Thank you. You can omit corn flour and add one egg instead of that. And yes, you can swap Cheddar with mozzarella. You can definitely use lesser cheese, but it adds a nice taste to the pudding.

Can we add one egg in place of corn flour mixture?
Yes, replace corn flour with an egg. You can decrease the milk quantity also by 1/4 cup.
Made 3 batches for a family gathering. Everyone LOVED it! Thank you!
