With the cost of grocery item these days, using up the last of anything is always a challenge. Bread is no exception and in most households, along with milk, is a constant staple.  Rescue bread remnants before they head to the compost pile by keeping a basket or container in the freezer where you can easily toss the bag and it’s contents.

The following is a basic recipe for bread pudding.  There are endless variations of bread pudding recipes : chocolate, apple, coconut, raisin, blueberry, pumpkin, and dried fruit;  just to name a few. Traditional bread pudding is served with a bourbon sauce.

Basic Bread Pudding

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Place 8-10 slices of bread, which have been toasted & cut into cubes, into a greased 8×8 inch oven proof dish. Set aside.

In a medium size mixing bowl, combine:

3/4 cup brown sugar

1 egg

1/4 teaspoon salt


2 cups of warm milk mixed with:

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 teaspoon maple flavoring (optional)

Pour liquid over bread cubes. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 45 minutes, covered  (uncovered will produce a crusty top layer). Serve warm with ice cream or whipped cream. Refrigerate leftovers. Makes 6 servings.
