It's becoming a holiday tradition for me to make my bread pudding for bringing to our Sonoma Christmas dinner with L's family.
- 1 loaf of Challah, stale, torn into bite-size chunks (approx 9 cups)
- 6 eggs
- 1 quart milk
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 1/2 tsp nutmeg
- 1/4 cup bourbon (I used Knob Creek)
- 1 package chocolate chips
Preheat oen to 325 degrees.
Beat eggs, milk, sugar, vanilla, nutmeg and bourbon together. Add bread chunks, stirring them into the egg mixture. Let sit for 30 minutes to allow bread to soak up the egg mixture. Pour into buttered 2 quart baking dish. Add chocolate chips and gently toss with bread chunks.
Bake 45 minutes or until set.
