Bread pudding is, quite possibly, the perfect food. With crisp edges, a custardy center, and a neutral base that lends itself to sweet or savory concoctions, it takes only a few simple ingredients to whip up a quick dinner or dessert. While there are many variations of the English comfort food, we’ve never seen one quite this decadent. Using quartered grilled sandwiches in place of the traditional cubed, stale bread, this Grilled Cheese Bread Pudding hits all the right notes, with the added bonus of gooey American cheese and a beautifully browned parmesan crust.
I quartered four of my five grilled cheese sandwiches. I started with a layer down the middle, then put 3 quarters on one side, then the other. My final grilled cheese got cut into eighths and I used the adorable little triangles to fill in random nooks and crannies. It doesn’t really matter how you slice it – it’s gonna puff up and become it’s own beautiful thing.
