Fast & Easy Dinner: Artichoke-Heart, Spinach, and Mozzarella Bread Pudding

Fast & Easy Dinner: Artichoke-Heart, Spinach, and Mozzarella Bread Pudding

Savory bread puddings are all the rage. Filled with chunks of delicious vegetables, smooth cheeses, and egg soaked bread, how could you not lust for a piece of one? For best results, use a good quality crusty white bread.

This recipe calls for frozen artichokes and spinach, so follow the packages' instructions to properly thaw the ingredients. The resulting savory pudding pairs nicely with an Italian Chardonnay. It can be assembled in advance and baked later, making it a marvelous choice for a pot luck meal. To take a look at the recipe all you have to do is,


Artichoke-Heart, Spinach, and Mozzarella Bread Pudding
From Food and Wine magazine

2 10-ounce packages frozen chopped spinach, defrosted, drained, and squeezed dry
1 9-ounce package defrosted frozen artichoke hearts, diced and drained on paper towels
3 scallions including green tops, chopped
1 quart 1/2-inch cubes of good-quality white bread
1/2 pound grated mozzarella (about 2 cups)
4 eggs
2 cups milk
1/2 cup grated Parmesan
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon fresh-ground black pepper

  1. Heat the oven to 350°. Butter an 8-by-12-inch baking dish or a 1 1/2-quart gratin dish.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the spinach, artichoke hearts, scallions, bread cubes, and half the mozzarella. Spread this mixture in the bottom of the prepared baking dish. Top with the remaining mozzarella.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, Parmesan, salt, and pepper. Pour over the vegetables and bread and press the bread into the liquid, making sure that it's well moistened.
  4. Bake the bread pudding for 20 minutes. Raise the oven temperature to 400° and bake until the pudding is puffed and browned, 15 to 20 minutes longer.

Serves 4.

I used about 3/4 of a sourdough baguette and that was the perfect amount. :)

Looks great, but does anyone have any idea how much a "quart" of bread might be?

Made this last night with caesar salad. Added some garlic salt and crushed red pepper flakes. So delicious! And easy!

Awesome. I think I'm going to make this for a brunch on Saturday. I wonder what would go on the side, since it has something of everything in it. Maybe just a little bacon or something or better some salumi. This is unrelated but I don't understand why people take the time to log in just to say they won't make something.

Yeah I'll pass as well - though the flavours look nice and I'd love a bread salad like this instead of a pudding.
