Italian Flag Caprese Bread Pudding + Basil Lime “Sorbetto” Muddler
Kids in the Kitchen! Recipe Ketch-up!
Summer is almost over, but until then, we are eating all the tomatoes we can get our hands on! We eat a lot of salads at Sticky Fingers Cooking, and classic tomato Caprese is our absolute favorite. Most kids love it. YES – Kids can and will love salad. Salads are also a great choice to get kids involved in the kitchen. Juicy summer tomatoes, sharp vinaigrette, fresh basil, and little toasted cubes of bread, all in a baked savory bread pudding…WAIT WHAT?
Bread Pudding is a recipe derived from sensibility. Cooks looked for a way to use up stale bread so they didn’t have to waste it - and Bread Pudding was made. We’re departing from the traditional sweet versions of the recipe to make a savory version, and appreciating the last of summer’s bounty with ripe tomatoes and basil while we’re at it. It's too good to refuse. Your Kid Chefs will learn about Italy, a bit of Italian language, and also what a caprese (kah-PREY-zay!) salad is! You can really pretend its summer all year long. Buon Appitito!
