    Although none of those is a *substitute*, any of them would work in a savory
    bread pudding. Mozzarella would probably be the least successful due to its
    texture when melted and relative lack of flavor.

    Mozzarella is too mild, IMO, for that. Either of the others should be good
    but havarti is closer in flavor to gruyere. You can even use both if you
    don't have enough of one.

    If they're nice cheeses blending them (like stupidmarket deli
    cheeseball made from scraps) is a waste of perfectly good cheese...
    choose just one or make separate bread puddings each with one cheese.
    I don't think mozz will work well with bread budding, too stringy. In
    fact I'd not use whole cheese, I'd make a cheese sauce for a savoury
    bread pudding... havarti is too mild for savoury, use chedder, edam,
    gouda.... a smoked version works well with savoury.

    Thanks...I'll use the havarti. It's a new recipe and I'm not familiar
    with the different properties of gruyere or swiss since I haven't used
    them.....Sharon

    You can't go to the grocery store first? I don't think either one is
    a good substitute. I don't like the flavor of gruyere/swiss (too
    sharp for me)... so my go to substitute is Jarlsberg. It's mellower,
    but still has a nutty flavor, and melts the same. Havarti is a
    completely different flavor IMO, as is Cheddar and I definitely would
    not use mozzarella.

    I always wondered why all cheese was not sharp or super sharp. Now I know
    who buys the other stuff.

    It's not a matter of "can't" go to the grocery store, but that I don't
    want to make a 20mi round trip for a hunk of cheese..lol.. I found a recipe

    Glad you found a recipe that calls for cheddar. What are you serving
    this with? I'm thinking pork or ham.

    Breaded pork cutlets. I blanched some asparagus and used tarragon and
    chopped fresh chives ( my rosemary plant is too small to start harvesting)
    in it. I ended up using the havarti and hope it's seasoned well enough. I
    had forgotten to get the cheddar out of the freezer... I will post how it
    turns out. It's ready for the oven and we eat in an hour. DH is a willing
    guinea pig... ......Sharon

    Well, after all the questions I had, the dish turned out really good in
    spite of the substitutions. It called for whipping cream and milk, which I
    substituted with evap. milk, croissants, which I used a poppyseed baguette,
    aged cheddar and I used havarti, sprigs of fresh rosemary, but I used
    fresh chives and dried tarragon. It was an Anthony Sedlak recipe meant for
    Christmas, using dried cranberries, but I used the blanched asparagus cut in
    1 inch pieces. So, after all is said and done it was a completely different
    recipe...lol... I'm pleased with the outcome, especially since I'm not much
    of a "seat of the pants" cook. ....Sharon

    Seat of the pants? You liked it and that's the bottom line! Good for
    you.
