Pecan Pie Bread Pudding
I had some hamburger buns in the freezer that needed to be used, so I substituted them for the French bread. Turned out wonderful!
It is not really like a pudding.
My family did not put on any toppings -- they loved it and quickly asked for seconds. The next day it was just as good even though it was room temperature and still no toppings!
