What sets our bread pudding apart from the crowd is the mélange of cooked vegetables that give the dish a fresh, healthy feel. Like a hearty quiche or scramble, the bell peppers, onions, spinach, broccoli, and tomatoes combine with the eggs for a light, refreshing texture that is perfect for the brunch table.

Great recipe to use up stale bread, vegetables rolling around in the back of the drawer, and of course, cheese-wonderful-cheese. It is easy to improvise, with different types of bread, veggies, cheese, and seasonings. The recipe comes together quickly, so it's great for a weeknight meal.
Loved this recipe, it was perfect for my potluck brunch!
