If you can purchase turkey Italian sausage, purchase one or two links to equal 4 oz. This is from "Feed 4 for less than $10" and this menu cost $6.39 - they have affordable, delicious meals which are perfect for today's economy! Cooking Light Magazine, October 2009 edition. They served it with sautéed zuchini: heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add 1 T canola oil to pan; swirl to coat. Add 1 lb thinly sliced zucchini to: sauté 4 minutes or until zucchini is lightly browned, stirring occasionally. Sprinkle with 1/4 tsp MrsDash & 1/4 tsp or less of crushed red pepper flakes. Delicioso! :)

This is a very satisfying bread pudding! I used more sausage than called for to satisfy the carnivores in the family, but other than that followed the recipe. The flavor of the caramelized onions stood out more than I expected, which was great. This was also very easy and quick to prepare.
