Recipe by majakete
You'll enjoy this even if you're not a mincemeat fan. I'm always looking for mincemeat recipes because my husband is a VERY big fan, I'm not, but I liked this one---it's not overpowering. I got this from a local paper and they say it's from a book called The Best Holidays Ever. I've never tried the jiffy custard sauce that accompanies it but I've included the recipe under that name.
- 5 cups French bread, cut into 1/2 inch cubes
- 1 1⁄2 cups mincemeat
- 3 eggs
- 1 (385 ml) can 2% evaporated milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 3⁄4 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1⁄2 cup all-purpose flour
- 1⁄2 cup packed brown sugar
- 1⁄4 cup butter

- Lightly grease 9 inch, deep dish pie plate or fluted quiche pan.
- Layer half the bread cubes over the bottom.
- Pour mincemeat evenly over the bread.
- Top with the remaining bread cubes.
- In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, vanilla and cinnamon.
- Pour over the bread and mincemeat mixture.
- Let stand 10 minutes, press gently with back of a spoon to moisten the top layer.
- In a small bowl, combine flour and brown sugar.
- Using a pastry blender or two knives, cut in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
