This Best Bread Pudding is so simple, yet so easy to make. There is always time in the year for the Best Bread Pudding. It is the perfect leftover for morning breakfast, just heat it up and it will be so scrumptious. I love the flavor because it reminds me of fall.

Here are some helpful hints to make this Best Bread Pudding scrumptious.

  • Other bread you can use to make bread puddings are Texas toast, Challah bread, white bread, French bread, artisan country bread, and leftover cinnamon rolls.
  • Make sure you grease your baking dish, so you do not struggle to get any slice out.
  • When pouring egg mixture, make sure your bread is covered in the mixture. If not then take a spoon and lightly press down on the bread so that it will soak up the egg mixture.
