I really enjoyed this. I only made 1/4 of the recipe and it was plenty for 2. Lots of flavor and texture. This would be great for a family brunch. I will make this again. Made for ZWT III.

I cooked half the quantity as a substantional brunch for two and it was a fantastic start to the day. Wonderful combination of flavours and the quantity of milk gave it a perfect texture that wasn't too heavy. I also liked the idea of the crouton base which held it together nicely.
