Herb Cheese Pudding is an easy side dish accompaniment to fish, meat or fowl. Preparation may be done ahead, and the dish refrigerated until baking time.
Torn pieces of whole-wheat bread are covered with a mixture of Jack cheese, sliced leeks, milk and eggs. After standing at least a few minutes to allow the aromatic herbs to permeate the bread and leeks, the pudding is baked for 50 minutes.
