Tuna Melt Bread Pudding

Tuna Melt Bread Pudding

Introduction

I adapted this recipe from my favorite grocery store's quarterly recipe magazine. It actually came out about 100 calories lighter than I expected! It's a very nice change from tuna noodle casserole.

Ingredients



    6 slices of sourdough bread, about 1 inch thick
    4 large eggs
    1.5 cups 2% Milk
    1/2 cup frozen petite peas
    10 oz low-sodium tuna - chunk style is better
    1 cup shredded low-fat cheddar or Colby cheese
    1 tbsp dried dill weed
    salt and pepper to taste

Directions

Cut or tear the bread into one-inch cubes and lay out on a parchment-covered cookie sheet. Toast them in a 350 degree oven for about 10 minutes. They should be crisp but not browned.

Spray an 8- or 9-inch casserole dish with cooking spray and put bread into it.

In a separate bowl, mix well-drained tuna, peas, and 3/4 cup of cheese together. Add to the bread and stir carefully (pan will be quite full).

In another bowl, beat eggs and milk together and add dill weed, salt and pepper. Pour over the bread mixture. Using the back of a spoon or spatula, keep pressing the bread down into the egg/milk mixture until bread absorbs some of the liquid and the whole thing feels pretty solid.

Sprinkle remaining cheese on top and bake, uncovered, for 45 minutes, or until cheese is golden brown.

Cut into six pieces to serve. A salad would be nice with this, but isn't really necessary.
