    • In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, half and half, maple
    syrup, vanilla and salt.
    • Arrange 1” cubes of brioche in 9 x 9 greased baking dish.
    • Pour mixture over bread and press the bread down.
    • Let bread soak for about 10 minutes.
    • Top bread pudding with prepared streusel and then add
    bacon.
    • Place bread pudding in oven and bake for 45 – 60 minutes or
    until pudding puffs up and the custard is set.
    • Remove from oven and let cool slightly.
    • With a sieve, dust bread pudding with confectioner’s sugar
