For years I watched the food channel on T.V. and watched as chefs made bread puddings for desserts. Every time someone made it I thought that looks too easy and you’ll never win making that.
Well I just had to try it out for myself. My girlfriend and I had a BBQ and a few packs of hotdog buns left over. Since I didn’t plan on eating hotdogs everyday for the next week I had to come up with some ideas for this bread. Why not try making a bread pudding!
After some searching online and taking a look at what I had on hand this is the recipe I made up. This recipe makes a small 8×8 pan. It was just enough for the two of us. Girlfriend tested and highly approved!
