John Torode's #TassimoPerfectHost Savoury Puddings

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.

3 eggs
4 egg yolks
300g of grated mozzarella
Salt and ground black pepper
200g smoked ham shredded (we used Smoked Turkey Rashers)
450 milk
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.
