      Well this is a 1/2 of rating ... I made my savory bread pudding for breakfast this am along with some scrambled eggs, came back in was was going to post it and looked to make sure there wasn't a dupe recipe and found yours. Now other than I used spinach, since that is what I had, had swiss vs gruyere, but I did have fontina, and admit, I added a bit more cheese, the recipe is identical so I am not going to post mine. But in honor of your recipe. I totally admit, it is wonderful, and actually is a shame more people don't make savory bread puddings. And as the reviewer said, what a great recipe. And this morning once again, mine was great, but, it is the same as yours so I wanted to rate yours too to let people know what a great dish. And you are right ... any veggies will work according to what you have on hand. I used a baguette that was a day old from turkey day, but any bread works. Thx for posting.

      Well, the 6 year wait for someone to review your fantastic recipe is over!!!! I chose yours for several reasons: Fontina, Gruyere and Half & Half! I happened to have all of them left over from my Gourmet Mac & Cheese recipe and knew how amazing they were in that dish. I was bound and determined to NOT buy another ingredient so I decided I'd make this recipe a wee bit more savory then the original. I used 3 yellow onions and carmelized them; added 1/2 pound of Bavarian Ham that was left from this weekend; some roasted Red Pepper strips and a can of Mushrooms. The end result was worthy of a 5 star restaurant!!!! I looked at ALL the savory bread pudding recipes and this one was just the most appealing and it turned out to be a real keeper! Sorry you had to wait so long for someone to make this and review it but I'm grateful that you took the time to post it, so long ago!
