New Orleans Style Bread Pudding is my kind of bread pudding. This bread pudding does not have large pieces of bread hanging out. This is creamier than other bread puddings, but not too egg-y.
It can be made with any kind of leftover bread that you have laying around. One day I would like to try this with stale cinnamon rolls. But, that would mean there were leftovers………..
I prefer making this with some dried out quick yeast rolls. I’m able to crumble them pretty quickly and these rolls absorb the liquid pretty easily. As you are mixing up this bread pudding, the consistency will look like really wet oatmeal. No worries, this will bake up and set just fine. If it needs a little extra baking time, that’s OK too. It just means crispier edges, which in my opinion is the best part.
