Cheesy Shrimp Ciabatta

For out last get together I made this delicious Cheesy Shrimp Ciabatta. This is an appetizer that shrimp fans will love. In our family this is one of our most favorite recipes. It's so delicious!

You can go with a baguette instead if you would like bite sized portions, but it is hard to beat a fresh loaf of ciabatta bread. The baguette slices will get much crunchier so if you prefer that mouth feel, you can go with a baguette. A fresh French bread would also work great. Enjoy!

Cinnamon Roll Bread Pudding

One thing to note right off the bat about this recipe. I am providing two options for how to make it. The way that I made it was to use a large loaf of Cinnamon Challah bread from a local bakery. This type of bread has no frosting, which is why I went back and added the optional glaze at the end. If you aren't able to find Cinnamon Challah locally, this recipe by Vintage Kitchen Notes looks delicious.

If you are using cinnamon rolls with frosting already on them, use your best judgement to decide if you want the optional glaze. Try a bite without the glaze perhaps and see if you think it needs any additional sweetness that the glaze would provide.

In my opinion, the key to success for this recipe is using a very good quality of either Cinnamon Challah bread or cinnamon rolls. If you use a bad quality cinnamon roll, I am not sure it will make the best ever bread pudding. Really great cinnamon rolls that are a day old and just a bit stale are perfect.

Cinnamon Roll Bread Pudding
Makes 6-8 servings

  • 6 large cinnamon rolls, or 1 large loaf of cinnamon challah bread
  • 6 eggs, beaten
  • 3 cups half and half
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • Optional garnish: powdered sugar + milk for a thick glaze (Approx. 2-3 cups powdered sugar and 1-2-3 Tbsp. milk, you will have to adjust it to your preference for how thick you want it)

  1. Preheat oven to 325-f degrees. Spray or butter a 9"x13" casserole dish with cooking spray.
  2. Cut cinnamon rolls into large pieces. Set in a large mixing bowl.
  3. In large bowl, whisk together the beaten eggs, milk, sugar and vanilla. Pour evenly over the cinnamon rolls.
  4. Let mixture sit for about 20 minutes to allow the eggs mixture to soak in.
  5. Bake for 50 to 55 minutes or until set.

  1. Cinnamon rolls are one of my weaknesses. Bread pudding is another. I'm in trouble now(in a good way, that is)!

This tasty Neiman Marcus Chicken Salad has a secret ingredient that gives the texture of the salad a wonderfully creamy texture. What is it ? Freshly whipped cream folded into the chicken, almond and grape salad. It works and it is wonderful.

Serve on a bed of curly lettuce, with crackers or on a croissant. Enjoy!

Stick of Butter Rice

This delicious side dish was a hit at my house. The raving over this recipe was intense. To put it mildly, everyone loved it.

Personally, I felt that the amount of butter could be cut down a bit in this recipe. I'll leave that up to you guys to decide what you think is best. I think I would go with 1/3 cup and see how that goes next time around. If you have unsalted butter I'd also recommend that you go with that, instead of the standard salted butter. Between the condensed soup and broth, it can get a bit salty.

Note that for this recipe you want to use standard white rice, not instant rice. Enjoy!
