SRC: Mushroom & Goat Cheese Bread Pudding

Can you believe its time for another SRC post already? I am so excited about the blog I was assigned this month!!! I honestly had such a hard time deciding what to make and will be making more recipes in the future. I was assigned the blog Fat Girl Trapped in a Skinny Body which is written by Julia from California. Julia seems to be a girl after my own heart because she bakes so many delectable looking desserts (you have to check out her s'more aniversary cake - I can't wait to make it!!!), and she also LOVES goat cheese... so much that she even made goat cheese frozen yogurt! Who woulda thought - it actually looked delicious and I was super tempted to try it out... but I settled for making a savory bread pudding - mushroom and goat cheese bread pudding to be exact.

And it was delish!! What a great recipe - I would definitely make it again, but not before I try out some other recipes from Julia's blog. It was so hard not to join as a follower this month and give myself away! Thanks Julia for posting such amazing recipes and thanks to Amanda & co. at the SRC for hosting this awesome group each month.

On to the recipe!

Mushroom & Goat Cheese Bread Pudding

Minimally adapted from Fat Girl Trapped in a Skinny Body


  • 1 1/2 cups stale bread slices, cut into cubes

  • 1 egg

  • 1/2 cup milk

  • 1 cup chopped mushrooms

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 tbsp minced fresh herbs (I used rosemary and chives)

  • 2 ounces goat cheese

  • salt and pepper

  • proscuitto and additional goat cheese for garnish


  1. Preheat oven to 350F.

  2. In a medium bowl whisk together egg, milk, garlic, fresh herbs, salt and pepper.

  3. Add bread cubes, mushrooms and goat cheese to egg mixture. Stir gently just to incorporate. Pour into two ramekins and let stand for 15 minutes.

  4. Meanwhile, pan fry a couple slices of proscuitto in a pre-heated skillet until crispy. Crumble and reserve for later.

  5. Bake 30-35 minutes until pudding puffs up and custard is set. Remove from oven and cool slightly before serving. Sprinkle with crumbled crispy proscuitto and additional goat cheese.

And thats that! Be prepared to see more recipes from Julia's blog because everything she makes sounds to die for. If you want to learn more about the SRC or join, you can check out the SRC website here.


  1. Yea, another fan of goat cheese!!!!! Glad you liked the bread pudding :)

  2. Savory bread puddings are wonderful! I usually amake mine with onions and spianch, but I'll have to mix in some mushrooms one of these days. My other tip is to use amixture of different breads (white, wheat, corn, etc) -- it helps make the texture interesting.

    Thanks for sharing!

  3. I adore goat cheese, looks wonderful.
