This Oughta' Fill Em Up!!

Normally our breakfasts' are quite simple.   Such as cream of wheat, oatmeal, toast and fruit, kefir smoothies, etc.  But this morning I thought I would try an experiment.  MOM always says that a hearty breakfast will hold a child's tummy all morning long.   So here's to MOM, lets see if my breakfast of eggs, sausage, and bread pudding will keep little tummies from growling during morning lessons.  Recipe for bread pudding under picture.


2 cups whole milk (or 2 cups half & half)
1/4 cup butter
2/3 cup sugar (white or brown, depending on taste preference)
3 eggs
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 cups bread, torn into small pieces (I used my leftover whole wheat bread)
1/2 cup raisins (optional)


1. In medium saucepan, over medium heat, heat milk (or half & half) just until film forms over top. Combine butter and milk, stirring until butter is melted. Cool to lukewarm.

2. Combine sugar, eggs, cinnamon, nutmeg, and vanilla. Beat with an electric mixer at medium speed for 1 minute. Slowly add milk mixture.

3. Place bread in a lightly greased 1 1/2 quart casserole.

4. Sprinkle with raisins if desired. Pour batter on top of bread.

5. Bake at 350 degrees F for 45 to 50 minutes or until set. Serve warm.

If you make the sauce to put on top of your bread pudding, adjust the sugar in the bread pudding recipe, change it to 1/3 cups sugar (the sauce has the other 1/3 cup in it).

Bread Pudding Sauce-(this looks really good but we have never used it.  The kids just drizzle honey over top with melted butter)


1 cup whole milk
2 Tbsp. butter
1/3 cup granulated white sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1 Tbsp. flour
dash of salt


Mix everything together and bring to a boil for 3 - 4 minutes, stirring constantly. Set aside for 5 minutes, then pour on warm bread pudding.

The recipe sounds delicious. I recently made a savory bread pudding for dinner with corn, tomatoes, and cheese. My husband loved it.
