Savory Green Tomato Bread Pudding

Updated: Aug 12, 2020

A delicious way to enjoy the bright tartness of summer green tomatoes.

Ingredients for roasted green tomatoes:

4 large/6 medium green tomatoes

Olive oil

Salt and pepper

Ingredients for bread pudding:

2 large eggs

2 cups whole milk

Roasted green tomatoes (above)

1/2 stale baguette, cubed

1/4 cub fresh herbs (I used fresh basil and dill)

1/2 cup cheddar cheese (I used aged raw milk Vermont white cheddar)

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 tsp sea salt

2 cloves garlic, finely minced or 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1/4 teaspoon black pepper


1. Cut the green tomatoes into large pieces and place on a baking sheet. Coat with olive oil, salt and pepper. Bake at 400*F for 20-30 minutes until slightly shriveled and golden on the edges. Let cool 10 minutes before using in step 2.

2. In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs and milk. Add the remaining ingredients and mix just until combined. It's okay if the tomatoes break up a bit.

3. Pour the mixture into a greased 7" x 11" baking dish. Bake at 375* for 30-40 minutes or until set in the middle.

4. Let cool at least 30 minutes before serving. Garnish with fresh herbs and a drizzle of olive oil.

Makes 6 servings as a main course, 10 servings as a side dish.
