Test Kitchen Notes

I would like to give a hearty thumbs up to this Mushroom Bread Pudding recipe. The dish starts with a simple sautĂ© of a variety of mushrooms along with onions and herbs. The addition of rye bread and Parmesan cheese boosts the flavor of this comforting pudding. Other herbs such as fresh oregano, dill or marjoram could work quite well along with other cheeses. Yum! - sticksnscones —sticksnscones

This was great! I skipped the milk because I only had heavy cream and it worked out fine. I also only had portobellos on hand, and it was still delicious. Thanks for the great recipe :)
