Day 223: Holiday Bread Pudding {Recipe Revealed!!}


You may be thinking, what a weird name, or this just doesn’t sound good. And I agree, if I knew what else to call it I would rename it. Most people are confused when I say what I’m making for the holidays.

Bread Pudding

Cubed 10-12 oz day old bread (most loaves are 20 oz)
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 quart eggnog
2 cups half and half
1 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp vanilla
1/3 cup sugar
6 eggs

Dump cubed bread and chocolate chips into greased 9×13.

Combine in large bowl: Eggs, eggnog, half and half, nutmeg, vanilla, and sugar.

Add mixture to baking pan and allow to soak into bread for 10 min.

Bake 65 min at 325F. Or until bread is browned.
Serve warm.


How I fiddle with my recipe:

I rarely use a measuring spoon for vanilla or nutmeg so I add more than advised.

I often buy a new loaf of bread. Pull out half and let it sit out and get a little stale. Do not use rock hard bread that you may want to make croutons from.

I add chocolate chips without a measuring cup and I love chocolate….so there is tons.

People looooove this once they try it. You may need to encourage the shy ones to take a bite.
It is super rich so it could easily be served with black coffee as a dessert.

Please enjoy this.
