Ham and Swiss Bread Pudding
Why I Love This Recipe
This is one of my favorite Cooking Light recipes. Very easy and absolutely delicious and filling. Good for breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner.
I usually pair it will a romaine salad and some fresh fruit.
Ingredients You'll Need
1 1/4 cups chopped green onions
3/4 cup chopped ham (about 3 ounces)
2 garlic cloves, chopped
7 (1-ounce) Hawaiian bread rolls, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
1 3/4 cups fat-free milk
3/4 cup egg substitute
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
3/4 cup (3 ounces) shredded Swiss cheese, divided
Heat a small nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat. Add onions, ham, and garlic; sauté 5 minutes. Remove from heat; cool.
Preheat oven to 350°.
Arrange bread cubes on a baking sheet. Bake at 350° for 15 minutes or until lightly browned, turning occasionally.
Combine milk and next 5 ingredients (milk through nutmeg) in a large bowl, stirring with a whisk until well blended. Stir in ham mixture. Add bread, tossing gently to coat.
Arrange half of bread mixture in an 8-inch square baking dish coated with cooking spray. Sprinkle with half of cheese; top with remaining bread mixture. Bake at 350° for 25 minutes. Sprinkle with remaining cheese; bake an additional 20 minutes or until set.
