"I made this on Christmas eve so Christmas day I just have to reheat for a "Santa Perfect" breakfast! I use gala apples and reduce the amount include. I also increase the amount of vanilla in the sauce!"

"I would just make a few changes to recipe. I would add a tsp of cinnamon or 1/2 tsp of allspice to bread pudding egg mixture. The vanilla sauce could be improved by adding more butter and changing the sugar to brown sugar."

"This is really good and easy. My 1 and 2 year old love it too. I prefer to cook the apples (sprinkled with cinnamon) for about 3 minutes in the microwave before putting it in the dish, otherwise they're still crunchy at the end of the baking time. I also use pancake syrup instead of the vanilla sauce (which I didn't care for). Delicious breakfast dish!"

"I had a few day-old mini cinnamon bagels and took a thin slice off the top and bottom crusts before cutting into cubes. There was only 4oz of bread, so I cut the recipe into 1/4 (used 2 eggs) and threw in a handful of raisins, then baked it ~45 minutes in a loaf pan. The pudding is tasty, but the vanilla sauce is wonderful!"

"I've made bread pudding before, but this is the best I have ever made. I did not have raisin bread, so I used some left-over Italian bread and added raisins. It turned out great. Thanks for the recipe."
