Bread Pudding

Einstein Brothers Bagels Recipe

1/4 cup melted butter
4 (1/2 inch) Einstein Bros. Plain or Cinnamon Raisin Swirl Bagels, cubed
1/2 cup raisins
1/4 diced dried apple
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
4 large eggs
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
3/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1 1/2 cup sugar
4 cups milk
1 teaspoon salt

Cut bagels into cubes. Melt butter and pour into a 9 x 13 inch pan.  Tilt the pan to make sure butter coats the bottom. Place cubed bagels into the pan.  Sprinkle raisins and apples over the bagels.  Place milk in a microwave safe container and heat until hot but not boiling. Crack eggs into mixing bowl and froth with a fork (about one minute). Add other ingredients and stir until sugar is dissolved. Add hot milk to egg mixture gradually.

Do not add all at once or you may scramble eggs.  Mix thoroughly. Pour over bagels and press bagels into liquid. Let soak 30 minutes. Place on high sided sheet pan and place in oven on middle rack. Pour hot water into sheet pan. Be careful not to splash water into bread pudding. Bake at 325 degrees for 45-50 minutes or until set. Cool completely and refrigerate until serving.
