Taken from Edible: A Celebration of Local Foods, this delicious savory bread pudding really captured a sense of fall foods, with hearty bread, butternut squash, dried mushrooms and tomatoes, all in a milk-egg custard. It was delicious, a definite winner. I have this thing for savory bread puddings, even if I have never been a fan of sweet bread puddings. Custard soaked bread with savory bits in it. Heaven in a baking pan. We would eat this more often if we had bread more often, but maybe not having this every week is a good thing, it makes it that much more special.
