Do you have a lot of cooked oatmeal left over after breakfast? Follow your favorite recipe for bread pudding, but use the oatmeal instead of bread. Serve it warm from the oven with sweet cream. —Neola Lee, Alexandria, Nebraska
This recipe comes from my grandmother who raised me. Besides looking after my siblings and me, she worked the farm and ran another business on the side. How she did all that, I'll never know! She's a tremendous cook and the goodies from "Edith's Kitchen" are always welcomed and eagerly devoured - this bread pudding is one of the best!
Back in 13th-century England, bread pudding was called poor man's pudding. Leftover bread was simply soaked in water, then seasoned with sugar and spices. Todays version features eggs, milk and butter.—Evette Rios, Westfield, Massachusetts
