"Maybe it's because meat is so expensive, but I find cooks get very conservative when it comes to choosing accompaniments for a steak dinner. No one ever got in trouble serving a baked potato, but sometimes you have to take a chance."

I did this as an accompaniment to Chef John's Steak Sandwich and WOW! We loved both. Did not change a thing. This will be a frequent side dish with beef in our household. Thanks so much for shar...

Great side dish for grilled/broiled/baked beef meals. Made it like stuffing in a 9x13 in the oven. Used Blue Cheese since that's what I had and added a few baby bella's. Just make sure you add e...

This was wonderful. Such easy prep-work for such a rich and delicious sidedish. As a huge blue cheese fan, I'd have this any night of the week, not just with steak, and I think it would make a...

Yummy! Made this first thing on a cool winter morning! Delicious with bacon!

The only thing I did different was used multi-grain bread instead of Italian. It tastes great and is easy to make, but as another reviewer said, it is more like a stuffing than a bread pudding.
