Sometimes left over stale bread is too good to throw away, so I created our dessert on yesterday using a variety of stale breads from the pantry.

I just used all of the stale bread lying on the shelf & created a delicious tasting dessert to go with dinner. You may not have the pieces I had, but you can use what ever is left over, broken into pieces. Just couldn't bring myself to throw it all away,so this bread pudding was born. See what you can create the next time you have left over end pieces of bread. Sorry I didn't take step by step pictures. You could also make a stuffing.

Directions Step-By-Step

Mama often did this with left over biscuits, and I tend to cook the same way, using left overs to create something new and tasty.Break bread into small bite size pieces, and put in a large bowl. SHOULD HAVE ABOUT 8 CUPS. Add the eggs or egg substitute into a separate small bowl, and whisk till blended. Then add splenda, cinnamon vanilla bean paste or extract, half and half, melted butter & evaporated milk and beat to blend together. Some of the items I used to make the Bread pudding.
Sprinkle the raisins over the broken bread pieces. Then pour the milk mixture over the bread pieces. stir to mix together. Allow the mixture to set about 10 minutes to absorb the liquid.
In the mean time spray a 9X9 size dish with non stick cooking spray, and preheat oven to 350. F.
Once the time has elapsed, pour the mixture into the prepared dish and bake for 50 minutes till firm to touch. Remove from oven, allow to cool. Can Bake using a water Bath if desired for a softer texture if desired.
Can top with whipped topping and a sprinkling of cinnamon if desired. Just Enough to satisfy your sweet tooth. ENJOY
