A very easy, quick to make recipe that turns stale bread into a delicious dessert!
  • 3-5 cups of diced leftover bread - stale bread is fine
  • 3 cups of milk of your choice. I've used both 2% and cashew milk with success
  • 3 eggs
  • ⅓ cup of sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • grated rind and juice of ½ a large lemon
  • ½ cup of chocolate chips (or a add-on substitute of your choice like raisins, blueberries etc)
  • ½ tsp nutmeg
  1. preheat oven to 350F
  2. in a large bowl, soak the bread in the milk for 15 minutes
  3. meanwhile, beat together the eggs, sugar, vanilla and salt in a separate bowl
  4. add the lemon juice and rind, the chocolate chips and the nutmeg to the egg mixture and whisk the ingredients together
  5. add the entire egg mixture to the bread and milk mixture and combine together
  6. pour the entire mixture into a casserole dish
  7. take a large, high rimmed baking sheet or roasting pan (that's bigger than your casserole dish) and fill it with about ½ an inch of hot water (this will be a water bath for your casserole dish!)
  8. place the casserole dish into the roasting pan and bake in the oven for about 45 minutes.
  9. serve warm and top with ice cream, heavy cream, a caramel sauce or your topping of choice!
