DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350, and butter a 13x9 baking dish.
  • Whisk milk, heavy cream and sugar in a saucepan over medium heat.
  • Meanwhile scrape the seeds from the vanilla bean into milk mixture and add the pods.
  • Heat milk/cream mixture to just steaming, but not boiling!
  • Whisk eggs and yolks in a large bowl, and gradually add 2 cups of hot milk mixture to the eggs to temper.
  • Pour tempered egg mixture into the saucepan with the hot milk.
  • Strain mixture to remove any lumps and the vanilla pods.
  • Spread bread cubes in prepared dish and sprinkle with the chocolate chips.
  • Slowly pour custard over bread, being sure to saturate all of the bread. (If you can, it's nice to let it sit and soak evenly for 1/2 or so).
  • Bake in the center of the oven for about 1 hour or until a small knife inserted in the center of the pudding comes out clean.
