SIMPLE PEACH BREAD PUDDING

SIMPLE PEACH BREAD PUDDING

There’s nothing more satisfying than a rich, creamy, custardy bread pudding.  It’s like having dessert for breakfast.

This was a product of using up some galley supplies.  The last of my farm eggs from happy chickens, some opened canned milk, aging whole grain bread (hard to believe this one slipped by my bread-lovin’ man) and canned peaches (yes, I know fresh are in season but I’m trying to use up some provisions so I can dive into enjoying ‘real’ peaches. The side benefit with peaches canned in juice was that I reserved the liquid and made Captain a very yummy Peach Rum Fizz later in the day)

So, while all that creamy rich egg and milk mixture was soaking into the bread, I used my magic Goop to prepare my stove top Omnia Oven pan.  I’ve tried Pam as a pan release (don’t like all that aerosol smell), I’ve tried sprayed cooking oil and I’ve tried butter.  BG (Before Goop) the butter worked fairly well  but as you can see, after a gazillion uses of my treasured Omnia, it still looks brand new.  I make up little jars of it and keep them in the boat cooler. Recipe for Goop here.

Will have to do a post on Captain’s Peach Rum Fizz…and because of how much my Pirate Man enjoyed it Must find a larger supply of peach juice.

The only thing that would have made this more perfect would have been the addition of some crispy bacon.  Maybe with tomorrow’s leftovers.  I served it drizzled with a little extra maple syrup but really, it’s subtle sweetness and rich custardy texture was perfection all on its own.

  1. Hello,
    I love all your Omnia oven recipes. I have an Omnia but am just starting to play with it. Your website is full or recipes however have you published a cookbook that has a whole bunch in one place? I don’t necessarily have a computer available to search your recipes. Thanks for taking time to read this and respond.
    Kind regards,

    1. Hi Molly, Thanks for the compliments. I was working on a recipe book before being hit with this Covid thing which makes shopping for ingredients difficult. Have put it on hold for now but will be getting back to it at some point. Re computer: is it an internet problem or do you simply not have one available? If it’s internet limitations, I use the app Paprika and have found it invaluable when we are on the water for long periods of time. You can download recipes directly from the blog and when you do have internet and store them for future use. Thanks for contacting, any further questions, please let me know./…K
