A friend served this for Christmas dinner with a huge beef roast--I thought I'd died and gone to heaven. This rich bread pudding is the ultimate comfort food. She said it comes from a William-Sonoma cookbook she has. This is truly a fabulous experience.
This is a version of a recipe that was emailed to me by Williams-Sonoma. The recipe called for their coffee and spice rub. Fortunately, I was able to develop an alternative to the purchased rub. Serve this with flour tortillas, Spanish rice and recipe #237848.
