Serve summertime stuffing shots in snazzy shot glasses at your next dinner party.  Call the course an amuse-bouche rather than an appetizer for added hip points.

  • 3 C milk
  • 1 C chicken or vegetable broth I used a low-sodium vegetable broth
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/2 tsp salt I used smoked salt. It's our go-to salt recently. I'm a sucker for smoky flavors.
  • fresh cracked pepper to taste
  • 1 tbsp dried tarragon
  • 1 tbsp dried rosemary You can replace the tarragon and rosemary with any fresh or dried herbs that you like.
  • enough olive oil for a thin coat on your saute pan
  • 1 C finely chopped onions
  • 1 clove garlic finely chopped (I used 3/4 C finely chopped yellow chives from a local grower, Yellow Tree Farm instead.)
  • 1/2 lb zucchini thinly sliced
  • 1/2 lb yellow squash thinly sliced
  • 1 lb stale bread cut into 1" cubes Any kind of bread will work. I used a simple rustic white bread.
  • 4 oz cheese of your choice As noted, above I used a blend of shredded Mexican cheeses.


  • Preheat oven to 400 F.
  • In a medium-sized bowl, whisk the milk, broth, eggs, salt, pepper, tarragon, and rosemary until combined.
  • In a large saute pan on medium heat, heat the olive oil.
  • Cook the onions and garlic for two minutes until softened.
  • Add the zucchini and squash and let sit to brown. Then, turn occasionally, cooking for 5-6 minutes until soft.
  • Set the stale bread into the milky mixture and fold to coat.
  • Mix in the zucchini/squash mixture and stir to coat.
  • Spray a 9"x13" baking dish with nonstick cooking spray (I use canola oil spray) or grease with butter.
  • Pour bread pudding into baking dish.
  • Sprinkle cheese evenly over the top of the dish.
  • Bake for about 40 minutes until browned and liquid is absorbed.
  • Let sit for 10 minutes to solidify.
  • Serve directly from the baking dish or transfer to shot glasses.
