Caramel Bread Pudding

30 Dec

unnamed-12

I thought I needed another desert and in a panic I threw this together.

It is a keeper.

8 hamburger rolls , cubed

1/2 loaf cubed wheat bread

5 cubed croissants

1/4 loaf cubed Italian bread

6 eggs

3 cups half and half or whole milk

1  cup light cream

1 1/2 cups sugar

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

One cup homemade caramel sauce

Beat the eggs

Add the sugar

Mix in the half and half, cream and vanilla

Toss in the bread and coat every piece.

Add a little more cream if it is too dry.

Let it sit for ten minutes

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees

Butter a two inch high casserole pan or a lasagna pan

Add the soaked bread

Bake for 35 minutes or until the top is brown and the pudding feels firm and not wet.

Pour the caramel sauce on top as soon as it comes out of the oven

I served this warm with a little whipped cream.

This is worth the calories and a great way to use up all the holiday bread.
