“Very rustic, hearty and oh so comforting. You can add your own special touch to make it yours. I was looking for a bread pudding recipe but knew I had to make it mine and it was for a holiday potluck so it needed to be special. I hope you enjoy it!! I served it with a pumpkin maple sauce. NOTE- this was thrown together so not all exact measurements”
