Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13-inch baking dish with butter.

  • Combine sausage, pumpkin, onion, and sun-dried tomatoes in a large skillet over medium heat; cook and stir until sausage is browned, 5 to 8 minutes.

  • Transfer sausage mixture to a large bowl. Mix in bread, heavy cream, Cheddar cheese, eggs, milk, Gruyere cheese, salt, and pepper. Spread mixture in the prepared baking dish.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until puffed and golden, 30 to 45 minutes.

Cook's Note:

You can bake these in buttered muffin tins to make 12 muffin-sized bread puddings, if desired. Reduce baking time by half if using muffin tins. Enjoy hot!
