Savory Mushroom Bread Pudding
½ pound mixed chanterelle, baby bella, white button, and cremini mushrooms, sliced into ¼-inch-thick slices
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
4 sage leaves, chiffonade
1 small shallot, minced
2 tablespoons cognac
1½ teaspoons kosher salt, plus more to taste
2 teaspoons ground black pepper, plus more to taste
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, plus more for pan
3 ounces leeks, white and pale green parts only, halved and julienned
¾ cup whole milk
¾ cup heavy cream
3 extra large eggs
1 ounce dried mushroom powder (optional)
¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
½ cup Gruyere cheese, grated
¼ cup Comté cheese, crumbled
5 large brioche buns, sliced into 2-inch cubes
⅓ cup Parmesan cheese, for topping
Sauté the mushrooms with olive oil in a saucepan over high heat until browned, about 8 minutes.
Lower heat to medium, add the sage and shallots, and sauté until the sage turns translucent, about 5 minutes.
Add the cognac and season to taste with salt and pepper.
Remove mushroom mixture from pan and set aside.
Add 1 tablespoon of butter to the pan, allow to melt, then add in the leeks and cook until tender, about 5 to 7 minutes.
Place the mushroom mixture back in the pan and mix with the leeks until combined. Cook for 2 more minutes, then set the mushrooms and leeks aside in a large bowl.
Whisk the eggs, heavy cream, milk, mushroom powder (if desired), cayenne pepper, 1½ teaspoons salt, and 2 teaspoons black pepper together in a large bowl until smooth.
Fold in the Gruyere and Comté cheeses, then place the brioche cubes inside the mixture.
Soak the bread for 20 minutes.
Select the Preheat function on the Cosori Air Fryer, adjust temperature to 330°F, and press Start/Pause.
Line the inner air fryer basket with foil, then parchment paper. Spray with oil spray.
Assemble the bread pudding inside of the air fryer by alternating layers of the bread-custard mixture and the mushroom mixture. Top with the remaining mushroom mixture and Parmesan cheese, then cover with aluminum foil.
Select the Bake function, adjust temperature to 330°F, press Shake, then press Start/Pause.
Remove the aluminum foil cover halfway through cooking. The Shake Reminder will let you know when.
Allow the bread pudding to cool for 5 minutes before removing it from the baskets and transferring to a serving dish.
