My dad used to work swing shift at work, so some nights he wasn't home. Mom would try to be nice and make him some bread pudding for when he got off work. I don't know how many times she made it and told him she did on the phone and by morning it would be gone. Poor guy. Hey, it wasn't me!
Put bread out on cookie sheets to get stale. Tear bread up and put in mixing bowl with milk and salt. Soak for 20 minutes. Combine eggs, sugar, vanilla,raisins and nutmeg. Beat together very well. Pour over bread mixture. Stir lightly. Cover tightly with foil and steam in a pan of water for about 45 minutes at 350. Serve with Brown sugar sauce. If you like it more brown can remove foil last 10 minutes of baking.
