DIRECTIONS

  • Butter a 9x9 baking dish and put bread in it. Sprinkle with pecans.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together half-and-half, milk, eggs, butter, brown sugar, bourbon, vanilla, cinnamon, salt, and nutmeg.
  • Pour the custard mixture over the bread and stir to coat evenly. Let the pudding sit for 1 hour.
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Put the dish in the oven and bake for 50 minutes, or until puffy and set. Remove from oven and let stand 10 minutes.
  • Serve with fresh whipped cream.
  • Variations: add one large chopped apple (try: Cameo, Cortland, Golden Delicious, Granny Smith, Jonagold, Jonathan, or Rome); one large sliced banana; or 1/2 cup golden raisins. I think blueberries might be good, too, but I haven't tried that yet.
  • Note: If your bread is fresh, toast it for 8-10 minutes on a baking sheet before you begin.
