Savory Fontina and Prosciutto Bread Pudding
cooking spray
1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
1 cup chopped onion
6 slices prosciutto, cut into slivers
½ teaspoon Italian herbs or herbes de Provence
4 cups bread cubes (½-inch) from crusty French or Italian bread
1 cup (4 ounces) shredded fontina cheese
2 tablespoons freshly grated Reggiano Parmigiano cheese
4 large eggs (can use egg substitute)
2 cups fat-free evaporated milk (can use half-and-half)
½ teaspoon (or to taste) Tabasco® or other hot sauce
Lightly coat an 8-cup (8-inch square, round or oval gratin) ovenproof ceramic dish with cooking spray. Heat olive oil in a 10-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat and add chopped onion and prosciutto to pan. Cook, stirring, over medium heat until onion is translucent and prosciutto just begins to curl. Stir in herbs and let cool. Place bread cubes in a medium bowl with cheeses. Stir to combine. Add cooled onion mixture and combine. Transfer to the prepared baking dish. In the bowl, whisk the eggs until smooth. Add the evaporated milk and whisk until blended. Add hot sauce and blend. Slowly pour over bread mixture. Press mixture lightly with the back of a spoon and allow to rest for at least 1 hour before baking (can be prepared several hours ahead or the night before). Lightly coat a sheet of aluminum foil with cooking spray and cover dish loosely, sprayed side down. Preheat toaster oven to 375°F on bake setting. Bake covered bread pudding for 50 to 55 minutes. Uncover and bake for an additional 15 minutes. Let rest 10 minutes before serving.
