Tomato Davinci – Heirloom tomato savory bread pudding

 

I originally created this recipe a few years ago after having TONS of fresh tomatoes from our garden and some stale bread.  Sounds delicious right?  But It was an instant winner.  Super simple & easy recipe.  Absolutely perfect for Spring & Summer.

Just about all children LOVE pizza and My kids really like this recipe because they say It taste just like Pizza.  Besides getting rave reviews at home,  This was another popular side we used to have on the TaylorMade Menu in the cafe.  I know there will be a few happy customers when they read this blog post since they would always order it… (I know, I know it is not the TaylorMade Tomato Tarts Recipe – that will be a future post)

This is a lovely way to use stale bread (toast it if the bread is soft) or when you have fresh farmers market tomatoes.  You can use any kind you like, I have made this recipe with red, yellow & orange tomatoes, grape tomatoes, heirloom tomatoes – just about every tomato EXCEPT canned..

I’m going to show you 2 versions of this recipe..  The one I made at TaylorMade Market and a lighter version that can be made quickly at home if you do not have caramelized onion & roasted garlic on hand.
