Bread Pudding With Dried Cherries on the Grill

“I have not tired this recipe YET and am posting it so I won't misplace it. I am planning to do so this weekend b/c I love bread pudding and I love cherries and it's a three day weekend. Yea! I will toast the bread in the toaster oven and bake in the oven rather than use a grill.”
