The start of fall says nothing more than comfort food to me. Stews come to mind, as well as simmering homemade mulled cider on the stovetop while dinner is in the making. But one other thing that comes to mind are savory bread puddings. Rich and decadent, with an endless array of ingredients and add-ins that will make each and every fall night special.

And if you haven’t realized it, I’m addicted to bread pudding: Dark Chocolate Pomegranate Bread Pudding, Cashew Coffee Bread Pudding, and Dominican Bread Pudding. Heck, Cafe Terra even guest posted a Banana Bread Pudding once here! So it’s the natural thing to head on over to the savory side and explore it as well. 

Let’s begin with a bread pudding I made this summer using Brie cheese and leftover corn rolls. You can also use stale cornbread for a more compact texture, depending on how you love your bread pudding. The sauce is optional but so rich and amazing, that why not make it extra special? You can get truffle salt over at Gourmet Delights or your local culinary shop.
