Bacon Bread Pudding?! Oh hell yeah!


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


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!
