Aunt Peggy’s Bread Pudding

Aunt Peggy's Bread Pudding was a unique and delicious treat.

When Ali told me she wanted bread pudding for her birthday, I was a little more than surprised. I had never heard of anyone who asked for bread pudding for a birthday dessert! However, knowing Ali, this bread pudding had to be special, and it is! Whoever Aunt Peggy is, she knows her bread pudding!
This bread pudding was excellent. The only criticism I have is that it was so sweet that the Blue Bell ice cream on the side was “cutting the sweet,” as my Ma Ma used to say. My suggestion would be to reduce the amount of sugar, as I have indicated below. However, diabetic coma aside, this is a treat you will not want to miss!
From start to finish, this recipe will take you about 1 hour.

5 large beaten eggs
2 cups milk

The secret's in the sauce!
