Chocolate Chip Bread Pudding Using Brioche Bread

Last week we made a quick trip into Aldi because a friend told me that they had a nice selection of organic baby food. We found that, but I also ended up with the ingredients to make this Chocolate Chip Bread Pudding. We can’t go into Aldi without coming out with at least one loaf of their brioche bread. My husband loves to use it to make French toast and they stock a rotating variety of flavors. During our trip they had a chocolate chip variety with a swirl of what appeared to be vanilla custard. It looked delicious and he couldn’t resist. My husband used one loaf to make French toast and he left the remaining loaf for me to make something with our son. I had planned to make French toast again, but he ended up having a 10am basketball game so labor-intensive French toast was a no-go. I needed to be able to make something that didn’t require me standing over the stove; I was parenting solo that weekend because my husband was in Korea and I had two kids to get ready for a game. My version of bread pudding is basically the same recipe that I used for this bread pudding, except it can be dumped into one casserole dish and baked in the oven. Here’s my recipe for Chocolate Chip Bread Pudding using Chocolate Chip brioche bread. I hope you’ll check it out and feel free to substitute other varieties of brioche bread in this recipe.

I’m not sure how my mother managed having four kids; I know she had a lot of help from my grandparents and great grandparents, but there are days that I struggle to manage caring for two children. I used to have more time to prepare and cook meals before my daughter arrived, but my son was 7 and he didn’t require my constant attention. My daughter will be 6 months old at the end of the month;  between breastfeeding, teething and sleep regression, I’m exhausted. I thought it would be fun to share an easy breakfast recipe that can be prepped ahead of time and baked in the oven. This Oats N Honey Baked French Toast uses ingredients that you can commonly find in your pantry (instead of specialty bread or cream), so you shouldn’t have to run out to the grocery store. I’m also explaining how this recipe can help you earn money for a local school.

Glazed Donut French Toast Recipe

August 13, 2016

Have you ever went to grab a glazed donut to discover that they’re stale? Rarely do we finish off a dozen glazed donuts before they go stale. Jeremy loves donuts from a local donut shop called Amon’s Bakery. I’m actually not crazy about glazed donuts, but I agree with him that they’re pretty awesome when they’re fresh. Once donuts start to go stale even reheating can’t salvage them, but I discovered they make tasty French Toast. This Glazed Donut French Toast recipe won’t need syrup or any other toppings, the sugar glaze on the donuts starts to caramelize in the skillet and makes them amply sweet.
