Default Savoury Bread Pudding

I know, it's not a catchy title but bear with me!

I've been trying to find a wheatless bread I can eat and enjoy. Gluten's fine, wheat gives me sore joints and loud intestines. If I have to live breadless for evermore, so be it - but oh, sometimes for a sandwich!

Anyway, my last try was a spelt uncut loaf but alas, it's just not 'it'. However, as I contemplated 3/4 of this bread that cost me about $5 the loaf, my frugal soul rebelled at putting in the bin, so the recipe was born. The amounts are what I had in.

12oz bread, cut into very chunky cubes, at least 2" each.

1/2 cup lactofree milk
2 medium eggs
4 oz soft cheese, Philly
less than 1/4 tsp dried chilli flakes
3/4 tsp ground nutmeg

Put the bread chunks in - all I had was a round cake tin.
Blitz the rest of the ingredients in a blender.
Pour over the bread - make sure every bit gets a drizzle at least.

Bang in a hot oven - mine was Gas #9, the highest for about 20 minutes, or the length of time it takes to drink a mug of black coffee.

This was absolutely gorgeous! I would happily make it again. It doesn't have to be expensive bread, for those who can eat wheat it would work perfectly well with storebought cheapest brown/wholemeal.

The top layer is crunchy; the middle infused with milky, cheesy, nutmegness; the rest of the eggy milky stuff goes kind of omeletty on the bottom.

I have the same issues with wheat, Rosenante, plus swelling of ankles. Have you tried rice or oat breads?

I have also seen a wheat-free, gluten free bread flour at the health food store. May have to try it, but it is frightfully expensive.

I haven't found any rice or oat breads yet.

The supermarkets sell gluten free bread but, to me, I may as well eat the packaging for all the contents are like real bread or not; plus, as you say, they're phenomenally expensive.

It's the texture as well as the taste that's the problem with the substitutes for me. Ah well. "Eating bread" vs "Being slim" = "No contest"!!!
