    I saw Ina Garten prepare this on the "Barefoot Contessa" show on Food Network. It is EXCELLENT, but very rich, great for entertaining.

      I substitute semi-sweet chocolate chips for the raisins as I can't stand raisins in my bread pudding. The result was a truly decadent dessert!

      It is easy and amazingly yummy. To lessen the guilt, however, use skim milk (2 cups), two eggs, and 1/2 cup of sugar for about 4 large croissants. You can add any flavoring you want (I use vanilla and almond, and sprinkle sliced almonds on top). The taste will not suffer -- and neither will your behind (not so much, that is).

      This is THE best bread pudding recipe. I usually leave out the raisins, always add cinnamon and a dash of nutmeg and sometimes add things like sliced apples or pecans depending on my mood. I enjoy this so much more when it is drizzled with Hard Brandy Sauce. (1/2 butter melted with 1/4 cup sugar and 3/4 cup Brandy whisked constantly over medium heat.)
