    Bacon Bread Pudding! This recipe was inspired by breakfast leftovers (bagels, bacon & blueberries). I’m sure you won’t be surprised to hear that the Bacon adds a delicious salty crunch to a sweet dessert…amazing!

    Ingredients:

    4 cups bagel or bread, cubed
    2 eggs, beaten
    1/2 cup milk
    1/2 cup buttermilk
    1/2 cup sugar
    2 Tbsp Parmesan cheese
    1/2 tsp salt
    1 Tbsp Cognac (optional)
    1/2 tsp vanilla
    4-5 oz fresh blueberries or nuts (optional)
    1 lb undercooked bacon, chopped
    1-2 Tbsp light brown sugar
    1 Tbsp butter, sliced into thirds

    Preparation:

    In a large bowl mix the eggs, milks, sugar, vanilla, salt, Parmesan, and cognac together. Stir until all ingredients are combined.

    Add the cubed bagel & blueberries and 1/2 chopped bacon, carefully toss to coat all of the bread. Let sit for approx 5 minutes to let the bagel soak.

    Carefully move the soaked mixture into a greased 8 inch loaf pan.

    Sprinkle the top with the remaining chopped bacon then brown sugar.

    Top off with the three slices of butter.

    Place in the oven, cook uncovered for 30-40 minutes or until a knife inserted in center comes out clean.

    Serve each bread pudding piece warm with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream. ENJOY!
