We left for a week's vacation on Friday, and were dutifully trying to eat through all the perishables in the fridge all week. Friday came and we still had eggs, bread, cheese and milk left - plus some basil and a zucchini - so I grabbed a can of corn and created this savory bread pudding. The best part is when we get home we'll have this yummy dish in the freezer ready to heat and eat.

We left for a week's vacation on Friday, and were dutifully trying to eat through all the perishables in the fridge all week. Friday came and we still had eggs, bread, cheese and milk left - plus some basil and a zucchini - so I grabbed a can of corn and created this savory bread pudding. The best part is when we get home we'll have this yummy dish in the freezer ready to heat and eat.
