Croissant Bread Pudding

I love bread pudding. Basically, you can take any type of bread, and add a custard to it, bake it & call it bread pudding. There are so many variations of breakfast stratas, sweet bread puddings and savory ones.

This bread pudding was made with leftover croissants.

I hosted a luncheon for Breast Cancer Awareness Month (which is in October), and had 6 women for lunch. I will save the menu for another post, however, I will show you the mini croissants with egg salad on them, which are always a big hit!

What to do with all those leftover mini croissants?
I fit them snugly into a baking dish. Poured a mixture of 4 eggs, a handful of raisins, 3/4 cup of whole milk, 1 tbsp. vanilla, 1/4 cup of brown sugar and cinnamon over the croissants and put them in the fridge overnight to soak up the custard.

The next morning, I baked them in a 350 oven for 35 minutes. They were puffed up like a souffle, but when I got my camera ready, they had deflated! Spoon out this goodness and serve with maple syrup over the top.

Croissant Bread Pudding sounds so rich and wonderful. Years ago, before my wheat-free days, we use to go out for brunch in L.A. to a cafe that had croissant french toast. It was really good. Your recipe sounds even better!
