6 slices of leftover bread
1/4 cup chocolate chips, dried fruit or nuts (optional)
2 cups eggnog or milk
1/4 to 1/2 cup sugar
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp vanilla extract
Preheat to 350 degrees.
Butter and 8-inch square pan. Break bread in chunks and put in pan. If you have any chocolate chips, apricots, dried cranberries or nuts leftover from holiday baking, sprinkle on the bread.
Mix the remaining ingredients and pour on the bread. Press the bread down so all the pieces are soaked.
Bake for 45 minutes.
Let the bread pudding sit for 5 minutes. Slice and serve.
