savory bread pudding breakfast

I baked up some caramelized onion and goat cheese tarts for a little soiree we are attending later today.  Alas, after I finished stuffing the tart shells I still had leftover goat cheese custard and leftover onion/mushroom mixture. These remnants looked far too tantalizing to dispose of and breakfast had yet to be tackled. My path was clear, we would use the goat cheese custard and the onion/mushroom mixture for breakfast.

I pondered a simple omelet. I pondered quiche. Then inspiration struck, I would use up some old bread and make a savory bread pudding.  I added a bit more egg to the goat cheese mixture and soaked the bread for a few minutes.  I oiled a couple of ramekins and put a big glop of bread pudding into the awaiting vessel.  I topped that with a generous dose of onions and mushrooms. Then I finished it off with the last bits of the bread mixture.  I baked it a 375 degree oven for about 20 minutes.  I served it with an over easy egg, some sliced kiwi, and a nice mug of hot cider.  It was delicious and perfect for fall.  The best part was no food went down the garbage disposal.
