'hey julie ford oliver - i don't even like bread pudding!' by myra anderson painter of the runway sketch . . .
so, i had a lot of bread and i decided to make a bread pudding. i didn't use a recipe. my philosophy is 'if you toss a bunch of good ingredients together - something good should happen!'
i decided to make a 'pumpkin pear' bread pudding. hey i was shocked when i tasted the pumpkin and it was not sweet. only later did i find out that pumpkin is a squash and not a fruit!
anyhoo i put together my 'squashed' pumpkin with my milk, eggs, cinnamon, butter and a little brown sugar, a pinch of salt and some pear juice. i put in the bread pieces and stirred it so that it could absorb all the goodness.
i glazed my pears in pear juice, cinnamon and brown sugar. i put the bread mixture on top of the glazed pears and baked it in the oven until it was done. and boy was it good!!! AND I DON'T EVEN LIKE BREAD PUDDING!!!
