Sourdough Savory Bread Pudding

Sourdough Savory Bread Pudding is so delicious. It’s way better than you expect. It’s great for breakfast or for a side for dinner.

2020 was full of new things so for many of us. I started watching Youtube videos about homesteading. I also learned to make a dry sourdough starter with einkorn flour. Some people learned about gardening. Some regular sourdough.  Lots learned to work from home and lots learned to homeschool while working from home.

2020 was a crazy year for us all. And now that we are in 2021, we know a lot more than we did at the beginning of last year. And we all might have a ton of sourdough we need to do something with. 

Once again I asked my friends on Facebook for ideas to used sourdough and this is one of the best.

What can I do with an old loaf of sourdough?

There are many things you can do with an old loaf of sourdough. Croutons, Savory Bread Pudding, Sourdough Bread Breakfast Casserole, and Chicken & Pepperoni Pizza Panini are just a few ideas.
