Ham on the Street on the Food Network is one of my favorite shows because it is a twist on common food that we might not think of. Such the case with this recipe. Who'd have ever thought of making a peanut butter and jelly bread pudding? I mean, this is probably the one sandwich I always have the ingredients on hand, it's good raw or grilled, and you can switch the flavor of jam and it's still something that is a comfort food (even though grape is always going to be my favorite with a big glass of ice cold milk!). So, give this recipe a try and please not only your kids, but the adults too. This recipe is posted exactly as written on the Food Network website.
- 4 cups whole milk
- 6 large eggs, at room temperature
- 1 cup creamy peanut butter
- 1⁄2 cup sugar
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup of your favorite jelly, jam or 1 cup preserves
- 8 cups coarsely chopped bread, crust from 1 (20-ounce)
- unsalted butter, for greasing pan
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
- Lightly butter a 13 by-9-inch baking pan.
- Put 2 cups milk, the eggs, peanut butter, sugar, vanilla, and salt into a blender and blend until smooth, taking care that the peanut butter is thoroughly emulsified into the mixture.
- Pour into a large bowl, then whisk in the remaining 2 cups milk.
- Stir in the bread and set aside to soak for about 10 minutes.
- Pour this mixture into the prepared baking pan.
- Place spoonfuls of your favorite jelly, jam, or preserves around the bread mixture, pushing them in a bit with your spoon.
- Bake for about 45 minutes, or until the pudding is browned, puffed, and a little firm and let cool.
- Cut into squares to serve.
