Several years ago, my husband and I invited some musician friends over for dinner and I wanted to really wow them with every course. They loved the maple glazed salmon and ohh'd and ahh'd over the fresh asparagus bundles. But when I served the warm New Orleans Bread Pudding, they actually gave me a standing ovation! This was the first time I had even tasted bread pudding so I took their word for it that it was good. Now, I'm always asked to bring this dish to every potluck dinner! It's easy and will probably wow your guests too!
