Bread Pudding

From the Galley of
EZ2CY AQUA EPICUREAN

Bread Pudding: This recipe is unbelievably good, easy and done entirely in the microwave. Serves four. (Small portions.)

2 tablespoons butter
2 eggs
1 cup milk
1/3 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/8 teaspoon salt
2 cups day old bread cut into 1 inch cubes. I like to use raisin bread or something similar and interesting from the supermarket bakery. If you don’t have day old, just cut into pieces and let sit in air for a few hours.

In a one quart casserole microwave melt butter for approx 40 seconds. Add eggs; beat well. Blend in milk, sugar, vanilla and salt. Stir in bread cubes and let stand for 5 minutes. Stir gently before microwaving on high for 3 minutes, stir and microwave for 3 more minutes.

Serve and enjoy!

Eggplant Parmesan: Serves four (if you have salad first). This recipe is easy and done entirely on the stove-top utilizing deep frying pan with cover. You will love!

2 medium Eggplant
1 egg beaten with 1/3 cup milk

Bread crumb mixture
½ cup Italian bread crumbs
½ cup all purpose flour
½ teaspoon basil
½ teaspoon oregano
½ teaspoon marjoram
1/8 teaspoon pepper
Pinch salt

Olive oil for pan

½ cup grated parmesan cheese
Jar of your favorite spaghetti sauce
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

Peel eggplant and cut lengthwise into ½” slices. Dip each piece into egg/milk and then coat with bread crumb mixture. Using hot pan with olive oil coated bottom, fry one layer of egg plant about 3 minutes (I use lid during this process.), turn and cook 3 minutes more. Remove this batch and keep warm then continue process until all eggplant is cooked.

Fill bottom of pan with one layer of eggplant and sprinkle generously with parmesan cheese. Repeat with layers until all eggplant is expended. Pour in jar of spaghetti sauce and sprinkle top with mozzarella cheese. Cover and heat for approx 7 minutes.

Special Dinner

Great Crab Cakes!

I made Stacey Valentines dinner using Crab Cake Secret and we both loved them. Phil is a friend of ours we met on the docks in Annapolis. this is his mix. The phone number for the mix is 301-455-8100 or you can find them on face book with a search for "Crab Cake Secret". I grew up here in MD and this is good!

I complimented with a side of walnuts slightly toasted in butter then cooked with green beans and basil.

Yum, Yum
