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.

    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.
