Bread Pudding

A few weeks ago I went out to lunch with the ladies I work with. We had a wonderful lunch and for dessert we shared a bread pudding. I had never actually eaten bread pudding before and had always imagined it to mushy and not so yummy. But when it arrived at our table it was beautiful plus there were chocolate chips in it, YUMMY. I came home and searched for recipes and made a bread pudding of my own, if I don't say so myself it was very good! I got the bread pudding recipe from

2 c. whole milk (or 2 c. half & half)
1/4 c. butter
2/3 c. brown sugar
3 eggs
2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg
1 tsp. vanilla
3 c. bread, torn into pieces
1/2 c. rasins (optional)
1/2 c. chocolate chips (my own customized ingrediant, optional)

1. In medium saucepan, over medium heat, heat milk just until film forms on top. Combine butter and milk, just until butter is melted. Cook to lukewarm.

2. Combine sugar, eggs, cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla. Beat with an electric mixer on medium for 1 min. Slowly add milk mixture.

3. Place torn bread pieces in a greased 1 1/2 qt. casserole dish.

4. Sprinkle with raisins and/or chocolate chips. Pour milk mixture over top.

5. Bake at 350 degrees for 40-50 mins, or until set. Serve warm.
