A savory bread pudding filled with ham, cheddar, and red onions


  • oil for the dish
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups whole milk (I used skim)
  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1/8 tsp ground mustard
  • kosher salt & pepper
  • 1 (12 oz) loaf French or Italian bread, cut into 1-inch pieces (I used whole wheat)
  • 1 small red onion, cut into 1/4-inch thick wedges
  • 1 crisp red apple, cut into 1/4-inch thick wedges
  • 4 oz sliced ham, torn into 2-inch pieces
  • 4 oz sharp Cheddar cheese, shredded (about 1 cup)


  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Oil a 2 1/2 to 3 quart baking dish and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, mustard, nutmeg, and 1/4 tsp salt and pepper. Add the bread and allow to sit, tossing occasionally, for 5 minutes.
  3. Fold the onion, apple, ham, and cheese into the bread mixture. Transfer the mixture to the prepared baking dish. Bake until set and a knife inserted in the center comes out clean (cover with foil if it browns too quickly), 45-50 minutes. Serve warm.
