3 stale croissants
2 egg yolks
2 whole eggs
3/2 cups cream
1/2 cup milk
2 tsps vanilla
cinnamon and nutmeg to taste
(next time I'll add sugar)

Preheat oven to 450F

Beat together eggs and yolks (and sugar if using any) until yellow and ribbony. Stir in cream and milk. Add cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla and thoroughly mix. Tear up croissants and place in an oven safe casserole. Pour liquid mixture over croissants and bake covered for 30 minutes. Uncover and bake until the center is just barely set, approximately another 15-30 minutes. Allow to rest for 10 minutes and serve.

Yum. Have you ever done Nigella Lawson's savoury croissant bread pudding with black forest ham and bocconcini?

Oh my god now, but clearly it is a moral imperative....

I'm not sure "moral" is the term I'd use :P

Maybe it should be a morel imperative? Fungus does go well with cream :)

You should so come to visit in the spring -- we have a semi-secret morel site. Last year we picked and dried about a dozen...

And we can discuss morals, or the lack thereof, when you get here.

Ooooooh, I've never been 'shrooming and it's been far too long since we discussed morals :)

can you explain the cream measurement? I may be sick and thick headed but I am not parsing it. Thanks!
