I'm delighted to share with you some tasty recipes from John Torode, We had the pleasure to taste some amazing Tassmio Coffees and watch John Torode create his tasty recipes at a recent Tassimo Perfect Host event in London.
John Torode’s Savoury Bread Pudding makes are perfect for lunch or dinner I was really intrigued to see if I could recreate these at home, John also recommends using fresh tomatoes and various flavoured cheeses if opting for a vegetarian option.
These Savoury Pudding really are delightful.
You can use cupcake, Yorkshire pudding moulds or a muffin tin to make these; either way, they are great as snacks or also side dishes.
Makes approximately 12 – 16 puddings.
4 egg yolks
300g of grated mozzarella
Salt and ground black pepper
200g smoked ham shredded (we used Smoked Turkey Rashers)
450ml double cream
50g salted butter
1 loaf white sliced bread
parmesan cheese for sprinkling
Step 1- Preheat the oven at 160 C/325 F/gas mark 3.
Step 2 - Mix the eggs, egg yolks, salt and pepper together, then pour in the milk and cream, mixing together well, but do not whisk.
Step 3 - Remove the crusts from the bread, cutting each slice into strips, as if you are making soldiers.
Step 4 - In a large bowl, mix together the cheese and Turkey rashers
Grease the moulds well with salted butter.
Step 5 - Start to layer the moulds with first a couple of strips of bread, then the turkey rashers and cheese mix. Repeat until each mould is 3/4 full.
Step 6 - Cover each with the egg custard mixture (as made in step two) and leave to soak for 10 minutes, so the bread absorbs the mixture.
Step 7 - Sprinkle with parmesan cheese.
Step 8 - Bake for 40 minutes, then take from the oven and allow them to set at room temperature for about 30 minutes.
John Torode’s Puddings are a perfect occasional treat, enjoyed best with a Tassimo Costa Latte.
