Cheesy Bread Pudding

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Lalaloula

This is a very basic, yet satisfying way of having bread pudding. It is a little indulgent I have to admit, but not overly so if you serve it with a big salad on the side. I hope you enjoy!

Made this as written, even though I was a bit worried about the paprika being included! Not to worry, though, 'cause that, along with the nutmeg & the gouda cheese, gave this a very interesting & enjoyable flavor! We also like that it was made with a whole wheat bread! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed as a recipenap in the Aus/NZ Recipe Swap #42]
