Slicing the bread into small pieces makes it easier to soak in all the flavor of the custard and it holds well together enough to give the dessert some texture. I love the fact that this isn’t as dense as some other recipes I’ve tried. And can we talk about the cranberries! Bourbon soaked cranberries add just the right touch of flavor that you wouldn’t get from regular old raisins. And of course the creamy eggnog, adds the best flavors of the season!

 

I like to serve it with fresh whipped cream but you can certainly garnish with a dusting of confectioner’s sugar for a snowy presentation. This is obviously the best use for day old bread. And who doesn’t have that hanging around the kitchen.  Anytime I find enough bread I make this dessert. I love it, the kids love it and you will too, I promise!

Enjoy!
