Savory Sausage, Spinach & Artichoke Bread Pudding
I know, you read "bread pudding" and were thinking wait isn't that a dessert? Bread pudding happens to be one of my favorite desserts actually but I'm also a big fan of the savory versions as well! Its a very basic concept with endless possibilities and is a hearty budget friendly meal! You can get your meat, starch and veg all in one dish!
This Sausage, Spinach & Artichoke Bread Pudding was inspired by the spinach artichoke soufflé at Panera. Every Thursday after dropping Jack off at Pre School I take Ryan to Panera and we share one of the soufflés. So this past Thursday it popped into my head that this same idea would make for a very yummy bread pudding and it is!! While I do use sausage in mine you can certainly leave it out and just add a bit more spinach and artichokes.
Besides the fact that this is delicious, it is really pretty too!!! This dish would definitely be perfect for a weekend brunch or for the holidays! Heck, the colors of this are even festive! This one is a winner!
