How to Cook Bacon and Cheese Pudding

  1. Peel and chop the onion and fry gently in duck fat (or oil) until the onion is limp and translucent. Meanwhile, grate (shred) the cheese and separate the egg whites from the yolks. Cut the crusts from the bread and crumble the soft white interior between finger and thumb to make fine breadcrumbs (if you have a food processor, you can use the chopper attachment to do this for you). Chop the bacon into small pieces and add to the onion in the pan for a couple of minutes before taking the pan off the heat.
  2. Place the onion, bacon, cheese, breadcrumbs, milk and egg yolks into a large bowl and mix well together. Season with a little salt and freshly ground pepper. Beat the egg whites until they are stiff then fold them gently into the mixture (do not beat again).
  3. Pour this mixture into a well-buttered baking tin about 8" x 5" (20cm x 12.5cm) and bake for 20 minutes in a preheated hot oven (Mk 7 - 425ºF - 220ºC). Serve hot with Fresh Tomato Salad

For added 'tang', add a clove of crushed garlic to the mix. Remember, though, Meester Graham's Hot Tip... cut the clove down the middle and remove the central 'germ' (stem) that can be seem as a thin, pale vein. It's the best defence against the infamous Garlic Dragon. You can also sprinkle some extra cheese over the top before cooking if you like the 'rustic' look!

Reviews of Bacon and Cheese Pudding

Rating 5 out of 5 - Many cooks will make this recipe again January 20 2014
I just love the taste of bacon; it's one of life's great delights. Cheese... don't care if it's Cheddar, Brie, Comte or just about anything else, is truly the food of the gods. Add to that, the lush texture of bread, egg and milk and you have, indeed, achieved the holy trinity of dishes in this recipe. I came, I saw, I ate it!
