Bridget’s Bread Pudding for Breakfast

Leftover dinner rolls going stale? After running out of leftover pie to eat for breakfast, our family always turns leftover dinner rolls into a classic New Orleans bread pudding to keep our sweet tooths satiated throughout the holiday season. A warm chunk of bread pudding and a cup of hot tea keeps us all cozy inside on those rare chilly Louisiana days. This simple recipe from Mulate’s is a Rabun family favorite.



  • 6 eggs
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 2 cups half-and-half
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 6 hamburger buns
  • ½ cup raisins


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a large bowl, whip eggs, and then add vanilla, milk, and half-and-half. Mix well. Add sugar and mix well.

Grease a 9x13 pan.

Break hamburger buns into pieces and place in greased pan.

Sprinkle raisins evenly throughout the bun pieces.

Pour egg mixture over buns.

Using your fingers, make sure that all bun pieces are soaked with the mixture.

Bake for approximately 45 minutes.

If you prefer a firmer texture, chill for about 2 hours, then reheat for serving.
