I Finally Made Bread Pudding.

Leave a comment

I am a huge ‘Chopped’ fan.  But I get so angry because just about every episode someone or both of the final two contestants make bread pudding!  It drives me insane, because the judges want something different and original.  I just feel sorry for them because they have to eat so many bread puddings.  Meanwhile, my husband would love to be a judge with all that bread pudding!

I haven’t had many that I like.  Mostly because there are raisins and nuts in them.  Ick!  But after watching so many ‘Chopped’ episodes, I thought “hey, it looks pretty easy”.  And I was right.  I didn’t follow a recipe, but I did look at some recipes to see what actually goes into a bread pudding.  #1 ingredient bread of some sort.  Since I spent all day yesterday making homemade bread, I had plenty of yummy  rolls and a loaf.  My homemade bread is actually whole wheat and I put some flax seed in there for extra healthiness.

Jeff loves Banana’s Foster, so I thought I’d spice his up with some bananas and brown sugar.

This recipe will make two individual servings.

first, preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
