CUSTARD BREAD PUDDING....A KEEPSAKE RECIPE



Want to turn on the charm? Southern Charm? Then Bread Pudding should be first and foremost on your list of specialties! This is going to be perhaps my “one and only” from now on. It certainly shows that you can always learn something new in cooking. In all of the years I have prepared a bread pudding, I had never used bagels before. What took me so long? I think you are going to absolutely love this recipe!
 
 

  
CUSTARD BREAD PUDDING
2 Cups milk
1/2 Cup sugar
A pinch of salt
2 eggs, beaten
1 T. vanilla
½ t. nutmeg
2 plain bagels, cubed
1/4 cup butter, melted



Cut bagels into cubes. Use two plain bagels, both top and bottom. Place bagel cubes into a greased loaf pan. Sprinkle with a little sugar. Mix butter and eggs together. Add the milk , salt, vanilla and sugar. Pour over the bagels and press down with a spoon to have the liquid custard coat the bagel cubes.  Sprinkle with nutmeg. Place the loaf pan into a larger baking dish and add 1 inch of hot water to create a water bath. Bake at 350 degrees F. for 45-50 minutes.

    1. Wow! That's a first for me Deb! If you like a custard dessert, then you would probably like bread pudding. Any dense bread works beautifully in this type of pudding. Hope you enjoy the recipe!
