Grandma's Eggnog Bread Pudding

Thursday, December 19, 2013
This Eggnog Bread Pudding is a delicious custard Grandma would make for us as a special treat on Christmas Morning.

It is so simple to prepare and the best part was we got to use up all the leftover eggnog and stale bread from the holidays.

I don't know about you but mom always overbought and cooked too much of everything for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.

This is always one of our favorites to make during the fall holiday menu planning and when dad would make his homemade eggnog around Thanksgiving.

We also love to make Apple Raisin Bread Pudding and Pumpkin Bread Pudding both great comfort foods.
