Such a wonderful theme. So many ways to go. Naturally, I chose to make a bread pudding.
Not your typical breakfast food. However, I was in the mood for a good bread pudding.
French Toast Bread Pudding with Bacon
My custard consists of...
- Whole Milk
- Heavy Cream
- Star Anise
My custard sits in the fridge for a minimum of 48 hours. Allow the flavors to mature and concentrate.
The bacon is a natural addition. Nothing better than a sweet - salty contrasting bite.
One final flourish before serving is to brulee the bread pudding with a kitchen torch. Those crispy charred bit of sugar are pretty amazing.
Check back here on April 27th for the complete round-up.
