Enjoy Breakfast Recipes During Cancer Treatment All Day- Savory Bread Pudding Recipe
I could eat breakfast for any meal, and when through chemotherapy, breakfast is often a meal easily tolerated when going through cancer treatment. This savory bread pudding recipe, a healthy breakfast casserole for Bread Pudding Florentine from the Day of Chemo chapter in my newly updated 15 Year Anniversary Edition of Eating Well Through Cancer cookbook, is a deliciously easy make-ahead egg breakfast casserole. This is an easy recipe for cancer patients to try several days before your next cycle of treatment, and also a good source of vitamins and minerals.

Use French Bread For Savory Bread Pudding Breakfast Recipe
I love a make-ahead meal, and this make ahead breakfast casserole is really a savory bread pudding recipe. If you do refrigerate the breakfast egg casserole overnight, remember to never put a cold glass dish into a hot oven. Traditionally, bread pudding is what people used day old French bread for as it soaks in the flavor making it tender and moist again, letting nothing go to waste.

Dijon mustard is a great way to add just the right kick of flavor to this satisfying savory bread pudding recipe. You can substitute 1 (10-ounce) box frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry for fresh spinach, if desired. Adjust the mushrooms and onions to your taste buds but they add great nutrition. When preparing cancer patient recipes, it is important to eat according to what you feel like eating. My cancer cookbook guides you according to symptoms and taste buds.
