Microwave: Mug O'Sardine and Egg Bread Pudding (Non-dairy)

If you've been reading my blog, you can see I have reduced my focus. I found I liked Toast Toppings, and Mug recipes, especially bread pudding recipes.
In a way, these recipes offer an opportunity to experiment with various ingredient and spice combinations. So, if it turns out to be a disaster, I did not waste much food.

Plus, I feel more confident making bread puddings than I do with baking, at this moment in time.

Also, I have begun to use coconut creme instead of milk or cream in several recipes, this, by accident, makes some of these recipes non-dairy.
This recipe developed when I decided to use some leftover sardines. I grabbed an older Scrambled Egg and Sardine Toast Topping blog post thinking I would use it.
Instead, I decided I did not want to make toast, so I thought, hey, covert this recipe into a bread pudding recipe.

This one’s for you Alex.
