Croissant Bread Pudding

Here's another quickie with no recipe. I had a couple stale croissants and I wanted to make something with them. I figured bread pudding would be the way to go. I had actually never made a bread pudding before or even really eaten one to remember. I mean, I know I've had bread pudding, but I can't for the life of me remember it in detail. So I checked out a few recipes, realized that I didn't have enough of the croissants to make any of them and just kind of winged it. It came out really good, tasted pretty much like a big bowl of french toast. Next time though, I'm definitely going to make sure I have enough croissant to make a full recipe, so I can write it down and post it.

I also want to wish everyone a happy holiday, if you celebrate something around this time, since I'm going to be fairly scarce around the 'nets for the rest of the week. Have a good time and stay safe!

I like to make bread pudding with croissant too! They are richer and more flavourful!

Croissants make the *best* bread pudding ever. Ina Garten's recipe is wonderful!

one of my obsessions is the croissant. I can't find any good ones around these parts and have to resort to whole foods (which are ok). I have to bake my own and they are so labor intensive. so when I have leftovers, which is never I have wanted to make a bread pudding with them. yours came out great. and Merry Christmas to you too!!

I cannot recall ever having bread pudding-I think the name just puts me off. Pudding is thick and creamy and bread shouldn't be that way. However, when you said it tasted like a big bowl of french toast-that may be the way to get me to try it!

Merry Christmas/Happy Holidays Bob!

Bob, I love the way you cook. Who else would have thought of this? I'm going to buy some croissants and let them get stale so I can do this...

Merry Christmas!

HELLO! May I say, this looks delicious, I am a sucker for bread pudding. My husband is not. I guess I'll have to make it and eat it all myself. I am so glad I found you (randomly) through your sister on Facebook. I know you, don't know how to tell you who I am, but you know me, I'm ANNIE! You can't know too many Annies, right?
