Dutch Bread Dish With Raisins

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Debbie R.

The is from "The Art of Dutch Cooking". I haven't made it yet. It sounds unique in that the bread is mashed, not used in slices.

Thoroughly enjoyable, very hearty !! Great way to use up leftover bread and I used a mix of light rye and white. I left out the peel as children don't like it much. I sprinkled the top with extra cinnamon and some nuts. Made for ZWT6.
