  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 3 cups julienne yellow onions
  • 2 teaspoons salt

Remove from the heat and cool. In a mixing bowl, whisk the eggs for 30 seconds. Add the heavy cream, remaining 1 teaspoon salt, remaining 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper, Tabasco, and Worcestershire sauce. Whisk the mixture until fully incorporated. Stir in the sauteed mushrooms. Add the bread cubes and mix well. Pour the filling into the prepared pan. Sprinkle the pudding with the grated cheese. Bake for 55 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to rest for 5 minutes before serving.
