Vegetable Bread Pie

vegetable pot bread pie

I had some three day old Romanian bread that needed to be used up a few weeks ago. This dish was just thrown together without any specific end-product in mind. And since it turned out fine, it gives me a chance to write about it here :-)

Basically, it is like a vegetable pot pie, but, instead of pie dough, I used old bread soaked in some milk; the vegetable filling is just held together by a mixture of cheeses.

6-8 slices of old bread
some milk
cooking spray
frozen peas, frozen spinach, onions
1 tsp cumin powder
1 tsp cayenne pepper powder
salt to taste
1 tsp oil

some cream cheese, grated mozzarella, grated cheddar


heat oil in a pan, sauté the onions, then add the frozen veggies and the spices, cover and cook till done; off heat, stir in the cheeses

spray a cake tin with some cooking spray; heat the oven to 375°F

remove the crust from the old bread and soak it in a small amount of milk - just enough to get it wet but not soggy; squeeze out excess milk and push some slices of bread down at the bottom of the cake tin; add a layer of filling; then another layer of wet bread on top

spray a little cooking spray on top and bake in the 375°F oven for 10-15 minutes until top is crisp and brown

    Wow Sheela. This is an amazing recipe. I love the crust. Always have unused bread. Will try this out. Can I use wheat bread?

    Lovely idea Sheela, you are amazingly creative...I must try this- a pie without all the butter that goes into the crust
