Epic Fail, Not servable...

So this happened today. Sourdough. Always a bummer when bread doesn't turn out given all the work.

I will not be taking this to my sister's... Now ideas for it? Click image for larger version

Hm. Looks pretty grim. What about scraping or cutting off the burnt stuff, toasting the remains, rub with a garlic clove, and making croutons or bruschetta?

You could use the insides to make panzanella.

Bread pudding without the burnt stuff might work too.

It looks like a twelve dollar loaf of wood fired brick oven artisanal bread to me!

Slice it and see what you find, you may be surprised!

If not make friends with the birds in the back yard and try again tomorrow!

P.S. I would definitely take that loaf of bread to my sister's house!!!

I'd vote for a savory bread pudding since it's sourdough, maybe Emeril's mushroom bread pudding, one of our faves. Bread crumbs or croutons otherwise. Did you forget about it for it to get that burned?

This interests me. Will have to look it up.

Emeril's Exotic Mushroom Bread Pudding looks fantastic! I'm adding this to my recipes-to-make list.

I have never made Panzanella, but just so happen to have all the ingredients AND am leaving town for a week so need to use them... Perhaps this was meant to be. 🌺

So how it happened... I very deliberately decided my loaf wasn't browning the way I had planned. I thought a couple minutes under the broiler, on the middle rack, would be FINE. Nope!

Haha, cheers to learning. Forever learning. 😊

Just out of curiosity, what is the consistency of a bread pudding ? Is it quiche - like, or more firm ( and less eggy) ?

Larry, think of the silkiness of a cooked custard, combined with French toast and it all gets stirred together like Thanksgiving stuffing. Can be a sweet for dessert or as savory side dish depending on added ingredients.

Incidentally, my dear late mother was an Expert at making burnt toast. I look at your sour dough loaf as saving a step and ready to serve.
