Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

Today, I wanted to make something new from something old. I'm not talking about taking old jeans and making a skirt out of them. I'm talking about Bread Pudding.

You need day old bread. Preferably not moldy.
I used the Challah/Eggbread that I made more than one day ago.

Into the baby oven.
Think Green - use less energy.

The bread was thick so we did not have any Soggy Messes.

Yeah. That's what I'm talking about.

Recipe for Bread Pudding   Printer Friendly Version
6 slices day-old bread 
2 tablespoons butter melted 

1/2 cup raisins (optional) 
4 eggs beaten 
2 cups milk 
3/4 cup white sugar 
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon 
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Break bread into small pieces into an 8 inch square baking pan. 
Drizzle melted butter or margarine over bread. If desired, sprinkle with raisins.

In a medium mixing bowl, combine eggs, milk, sugar, cinnamon, and vanilla. Beat until well mixed. Pour over bread, and lightly push down with a fork until bread is covered and soaking up the egg mixture.

Bake in the preheated oven for 45 minutes, or until the top springs back when lightly tapped.  

This was Ellen Marie's recipe from All Recipes.


  1. p.s i've also frozen left over fresh bread to make bread crumbs for future uses
