Herb-and-Scallion Bread Pudding

Prep: 30 mins
Total: 1 hr 45 mins
Serves 8


  • 1Combine bread, parsley, sage, and thyme in a large bowl. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium. Cook celery and garlic with a pinch of salt until celery is tender, 10 to 12 minutes. Add scallions and cook until tender but still bright green, about 4 minutes. Pour mixture into bowl with bread and stir. Let cool.
  • 2Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Butter a 3-quart round baking dish (2 to 3 inches deep) or a 9-by-13-inch baking dish. Whisk together eggs, stock, heavy cream, 2 teaspoons salt, and some pepper. Pour over bread mixture and toss until bread is evenly soaked. Transfer to baking dish, pressing into corners, and dot top with butter.
  • 3Bake until top puffs and center is set, about 1 hour. Tent with foil to keep warm until ready to serve.


  • 10 cups day-old challah or brioche, cut into 1-inch cubes (from 1 or 2 loaves)
  • 1/2 cup packed fresh parsley, coarsely chopped
  • 1/4 cup packed fresh sage, coarsely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons fresh thyme, coarsely chopped
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, plus more for dish
  • 4 stalks celery, chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 2 bunches scallions, thinly sliced
  • 8 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 2 cups chicken stock
  • 2 cups heavy cream
