Southern Bread Pudding

168

Soft, cozy blankets by the fire. Warm hugs and laughter with relatives around the table. Familiar songs playing in the background while you celebrate with friends over a warm pan of Southern Bread Pudding with Bourbon Sauce and slowly melting vanilla ice cream. This old-fashioned holiday dessert is warmly spiced with cinnamon and nutmeg, moist and tender thanks to a rich custard, and finished with a decadent sauce. It's an easy dessert for Thanksgiving or Christmas, and simple enough for your next Sunday supper!
