Bread Pudding with Vanilla Bourbon Sauce
This dish is so easy to make and so delicious to eat, you'd be crazy not to serve it for desert.
- 12 slices stale firm white bread or 6 ounce loaf of French bread
- ½ cup raisins
- 4 large eggs
- 1 cup granulated sugar

- ½ teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg or ½ powdered store-bought
- 3 cups whole milk (or half and half your choice of cream)

- Set aside for 10 minutes.
- In baking dish layer 1/3rd of the bread with custard mix into the bottom of your baking dish. Sprinkle with 1/3rd of the raisins. Repeat the layering twice more.
- Bake pudding for 40-45 minutes or until golden brown and knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
