  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 2 quart glass rectangular pan with 1 tablespoon butter.

Add the garlic and saute for 1 minute. 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 pepper sauce and Worcestershire sauce. Whisk the mixture until fully incorporated. Stir in the onion mixture. Add the bread cubes and mix well. Fold in the seared foie gras. 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.
