here's Mom's recipe:

Heat 2 cups milk to scalding

Pour over 4 cups coarse bread crumbs (this is where your stale bread comes in - note that the bread should be COARSE, i.e., torn up pieces rather than "crumbs")

Cool and add:
1/4 cup melted butter
1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs, slightly beaten
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup raisins (chopped up apple bits are good, too)
1 tsp each cinnamon and nutmeg

Pour into buttered casserole. Bake at 350 for 40 to 45 minutes. Makes six servings.

Copying and pasting! That sounds like such good comfort food!
So coarse crumbs are more like crouton-sized pieces?

No smaller than crouton size, PA. You want some heft to the bread.

I've even made this using stale, torn up hot dog buns.

crewsk, I hope you like it. Nobobdy here except me does after the first time. I can even eat it cold with some milk on it for breakfast - but that's probably an acquired taste.

If I don't , I know my mom will. She loves bread pudding. Who knows, my kids & hubby may even like it. It's more of a texture thing than a taste thing for me though. The reason that I don't like it may be because I've only ever had it room temp or cold.

Let me tempt you a little more, crewsk. Want a nice whiskey sauce to go over your HOT bread pudding? (if you say "yes", please give me time to find the recipe I used to knock out people at a Christmas party a few years ago....)

OK, OK! Remind me tomorrow (hafta go start dinner in a few).

As I remember, it's mostly egg yolks and sugar cooked over a double boiler, with some bourbon thrown in. I will try to be more specific tomorrow.
