Bread Pudding with Butterscotch Sauce

I found some Lender’s cinnamon bagels on clearance for $.79 bag and grabbed four.  We had some for breakfast, but they weren’t on clearance for nothing…they were sadly stale.  Solution: bread pudding.
with Butterscotch sauce.
Bread Pudding:
3 eggs, beaten
2 cups milk
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
7 torn up cinnamon bagels (or enough bread product to fill a 2 quart casserole dish)
Tear up bread and place in a greased casserole dish.  Combine the sugar and cinnamon then sprinkle over bread and mix with hands.  Combine milk, eggs, and vanilla and pour over the bread.  Let sit for 45 minutes on the counter to soak up the liquid.  Bake 350 degrees, uncovered for 30 minutes.  If not eating immediately, let cool on the counter and then refrigerate.
Butterscotch Sauce:
1/2 stick butter
2 cups brown sugar
1/2 cup cream
1/8 tsp salt
Mix all ingredients together in a saucepan.  Cook over low heat, stirring occasionally for 25 minutes.  Refrigerate leftovers.

Seriously yum!! Breads are my 1st down fall, make them into a bread pudding with a topping and that’s my second! 🙂 I was making some cream toffee cupcakes to ink tomorrow, but alas they won’t happen until tomorrow so I will link them next week.
