All southerners have good bread pudding recipe's..i love my moms pineapple version. Start w 4 cups croissants. Cubed. You can use any bread but believe me.. Croissants make the best tasting
Softened, 3/4 cup butter
Add a 1 1/4 cup sugar
Beat that together then add 3 eggs. Beat this until its fluffy and smooth
Next add a large, drained can of crushed pineapple and a 1 tsp vanilla. I am not a fan of canned fruit but using fresh pineapple does cause this to get watery. I find that the canned works best.
Half a lemon, juiced
Pour your mixture over the bread and stir gently
Press into a greased 9x13 dish
Bake at 350° for about 45 minutes
Now usually bread pudding has a wonderful rum sauce or caramel sauce. However i love it as a side dish. Pairs perfectly w ham or roasted chicken
Serve it warm with ice cream or with you dinner. Enjoy!
