Savory bread pudding is a perfect comfort food. Not only it is versatile but it happens to be quite filling too.
Made with cubed sandwich bread or other type of crusty bread, soaked in milk to soften and adding fresh or cooked vegetables of your choice to the batter. Addition of green chili or black pepper gives this a distinctive taste to rather bland pudding.
This is a wonderful meal to share with your family and friend.
