Here's a recipe I tend to lean on for make-me-feel-special comfort food. Based on a recipe from McCall's Cooking School, #6 under EGGS, CHEESE category. The introduction says, "A SAVORY VEGETABLE BREAD PUDDING. This is a truly magnificent vegetable side dish -- broccoli, cheddar cheese, and bread cubes baked in a basil-flavored egg custard and topped with rings of fresh bread. Prepare it up to 1 day in advance and then pop it into the oven to bake just before serving. The abundance of eggs and cheese makes this dish high in protein, and for a light lunch or dinner you need only add a big tossed salad." The only special tool that not every kitchen has is a 2.75-inch-diameter doughnut cutter required to give this dish its festive appearance; invest in one -- they're cheap! The resulting smiles will make you happy you did! You'll look like a genius! :) Neither prep nor cooking time includes 30 minutes standing time.
