BRIE & HERB BREAD PUDDING BITES

These luscious Mini Bread Pudding Bites make the perfect holiday appetizer and they hold beautifully on a buffet for seasonal feasts, too!  Use your Kalorik Air Fryer Oven to shorten the cooking time and free up your conventional oven. This recipe can also be made in a casserole dish.

Ingredients

1-pound loaf Sourdough or French bread
2 cups whole milk
4 large eggs
Coconut oil cooking spray
4 ounces Brie cheese; chilled, rind trimmed and diced
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
3 tablespoons freshly chopped herbs (parsley, chives, tarragon, etc.)
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted 

Instructions

1. Cut the crust from the bread and dice the bread into 1/2-inch cubes.

2. In a large glass measuring cup or a vessel with a pour spout, combine the milk and eggs and whisk to combine well. Season the mixture liberally with salt & pepper.

3. Spray a mini muffin pan with coconut oil cooking spray. Fill each mini muffin cup with bread cubes. Nestle in 2 cubes of Brie and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Pour about 1 tablespoon of the milk/egg mixture over the bread cubes to fill the mini muffin cup up about 3/4’s up the sides. Let sit for 5 minutes before baking, to allow the custard to seep into the bread. 

4. Preheat your Kalorik Air Fryer Oven to 350ºF for 5 minutes. Brush the tops of the bread puddings with the melted butter and bake for 10 minutes or until puffed, golden and cooked through.
