Wine and cheese bread pudding

Yield: 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient
10 slices French bread; (3/4 inch thick)
1 cup Madeira wine
½ cup Raisins
1 cup (4 oz.) Sargento Fancy Supreme Shredded Monterey Jack Cheese
1 cup Sugar
1½ cup Water
1 teaspoon Cinnamon
¼ cup Unsalted butter or margarine
\N \N Whipped cream; (optional)

Place bread slices on baking sheet and toast under broiler until light brown. Tear into bite-size pieces; spread in even layer in 12 x 8 x 2-inch baking dish. Drizzle wine over bread so all is moistened. Sprinkle raisins evenly over bread, then sprinkle evenly with Monterey Jack cheese; set aside.

In 2-quart heavy saucepan, cook sugar over medium heat without stirring until sugar begins to melt at edge. Start stirring with wooden spoon and stir until sugar melts completely and turns straw-colored. Reduce heat; stir constantly until sugar is color of dark honey. Remove from heat; add water very gradually, stirring constantly. Mixture will boil up. If lumps of hard caramel develop, return pan to heat; boil until mixture is smooth.

Remove from heat; stir in cinnamon and butter. Pour evenly over bread.

Cover with foil; bake at 350øF 30 minutes. Remove foil; cool 10 minutes.

Serve warm with whipped cream.
