Leftover Bagel Bread Pudding
This Bagel Bread Pudding Recipe is so easy and quick to make, it will blow your socks off.
The other day we bought a package of cheap, plain bagels that just didn’t taste very good. No matter how long we toasted them and what we topped them with. I hate to throw out food so I thought to myself, “Hey, why not make some bread pudding?”
I already had a recipe for regular bread pudding that I have made many times. I used that as the base and instead of adding 6 slices of regular bread I added my leftover bagels instead.
Here is my Bagel Bread Pudding Recipe. It is a easy to make in a pie dish with just a few simple ingredients. You can add or subtract ingredients depending on your taste and which type of bagels you have on hand.
Ingredients You Need:
- 3 Plain Bagels
- 2 Tbsp. melted Butter
- 1/4 cup Raisins
- 1/4 cup dried Cranberries
- 1/8 cup slivered Almonds
- 4 Eggs
- 3/4 cup Sugar
- 2 cups of Milk
- 1 tsp. Vanilla
- 1 tsp. ground Cinnamon
Cut up the leftover bagels into small chunks and add them to a greased baking dish.
In a medium sized mixing bowl combine the rest of the ingredients and mix until well blended.
Pour the mixture over the bagels.
Bake in a 350 ° F oven for about 45 minutes or until golden brown. Easy, right?
There is no better way to use up old bread or leftover bagels than in a bread pudding.
This leftover Bagel recipe always comes out deliciously sweet. If you don’t like dried fruits, you can omit the raisins and cranberries altogether. You can also add more almonds or other nuts if you like.
It’s fun to use different ingredients in this recipe. For instant, you could use Blueberry Bagels and add dried blueberries instead of raisins. How about using up your stale Cinnamon bagels and adding a touch of honey?
This leftover bagel bread pudding comes out delicious every time I make it. I have also made this same bread pudding recipe using leftover breads of all sorts, like white Italian bread and cinnamon toast.
