I've had bread pudding on the brain. I think it is because I am heading my ample self back into Weight Watcher's meetings this week. I had the pleasure of visiting New Orleans a few years ago, and loving bread pudding like I do, I made it my mission to have a bread pudding shoot out while eating my way through The Big Easy. I ordered it everywhere we went, and by far and away, the winner was Mother's. Mother's is a famous place there, and the Po' Boys and bread pudding were to die for. I had a loaf of Texas Bread from fresh & easy and cut that up into cubes last night and let it sit out to stale. This morning, using a recipe from Paula Deen, I assembled the goodies, and proceeded to satisfy my craving.
This bread pudding had a topping made with butter, brown sugar and nuts.
If you are a foodie....do go visit New Orleans! It is a fabulous city. Full of fun, and history, music, and good times! This was one of our most fun trips EVER!!! After this week, my food posts will be taking an entirely different turn. Until then....as our much loved Julia would say.......
