Another recipe I made in a few restaurants I worked at. Loved by all.
I used to use the left over hot rolls at the end of day. I would chunk them up & throw them in a big flat pan & let them dry out a few days, before using.

How to Make PEGGI'S BREAD PUDDING WITH LEMON SAUCE

Step-by-Step

  1. For Bread Pudding:

    Spray Rameikins or deep casserole dish.
  2. Mix all pudding ingredients in large bowl except bread. Then add bread. May have to use more or less milk. You want enough to just cover bread after it has set for a few minutes & soaked some up.
  3. Spoon into prepared dishes. May need to add more milk.
  4. Bake @ 350° for about 20-30 minutes or until set & slightly browned on top. Remove from oven & let set about 10 minutes or so before serving.
  5. NOTE: For the best flavor, serve the pudding slightly warm & refrigerate the lemon sauce & pour it over the warm pudding while the sauce is cold.
  6. For LEMON SAUCE:
  7. *Heat butter & sugar in double boiler until sugar dissolves. Pour in food processor. With lid on, drizzle beaten egg slowly into hot mixture so egg doesn't cook or scramble. Add lemon juice. May adjust lemon juice to taste.
  8. *I have made this hundreds of times & could never get the sugar to dissolve completely. I tried this again today, at a slower pace than doing it at a restaurant and I still couldn’t get it to dissolve completely on top of the stove. I did cook it a little longer though and it seemed to dissolve more of the sugar. I then put it in the food processor & processed it for a longer time. it came out perfect.
