  1. Easiest Eggnog Bread Pudding

  2. serves 6-8 8 Tbsp butter (1 stick), melted

  3. 8 c cubed, day old bread (I like using a French loaf)

  4. 4 c eggnog (homemade or store bought; with or without alcohol)

  5. 3 eggs

  6. 1 tsp freshly ground nutmeg

  7. 1/3 c sugar*, plus extra for sprinkling on top

  8. 1 tsp vanilla

  9. 1/2 c pecans, optional

  10. 1/2 c golden raisins, optional

  11. cinnamon

  12. 1. Preheat oven to 375. Pour melted butter over day old bread in a large mixing bowl. Stir to combine until the bread soaks up all of the butter.

  13. 2. Whisk together eggnog, eggs, nutmeg, sugar and vanilla. Pour mixture over buttered bread. Stir in pecans and raisins. Allow to sit for about 30 minutes.

  14. 3. In the meantime, butter an 11×7 baking pan. Pour in bread mixture. Sprinkle the top with sugar and cinnamon, and bake for about 40 minutes. Keep in mind that baking time is variable depending on the size of your baking pan. The pudding is done with the top is golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Serve warm, topped with whipped cream and freshly grated nutmeg.

  15. *Note: Store bought and many homemade eggnogs are quite sweet. But, if using a eggnog that isn't sweet, you may want to increase the sugar by half as much.
