I have some leftover filling which i made for quiche and i want to finish it off with some simple recipe.When i was going through the you-tube i gotta see some of the spicy bread pudding,but here i didn't used that much of eggs,cream and all.Changed the recipe according to my guilt free version and tada here is it!Made it like a filling with slightly thick sauce and then mixed with bread and baked.It was yum yum yum!Lightly crispy top with that creamy filling and cheesy texture was awesome.

For the Sauce

- 1 tbsp flour
- 1 tsp tomato paste
- 1 tsp paprika
- 1&1/2 cup milk
- Salt to taste
- 2 tsp cream cheese
- In a pan melt butter,add flour and cook until the raw smell disappear.
- Pour half of the milk mix well,add tomato paste,chilly powder and cook well until the rawness of the paste and chilly powder are all gone.
- Add cream cheese and mix well
- Now pour rest of the milk and salt.Cook until you get a thick saucy consistency.
- Throw in some spring onions and switch off the flame.
I don't like to cut the edges of the bread ,that will give a nice golden crust to the dish.
Notes:Old bread works best here.No need to arrange the bread neatly just cut and dump it onto the dish and then pour the filling.Make sure the liquid is enough to cover and soak the bread,otherwise you will get a dry pudding instead of creamy one.
You can skip the chicken and stick on to veggie.
Have it when it's hot.With or without sauce it taste yummilicious!
