Apple Pecan Bread Pudding

Apple Pecan Bread Pudding ~ We have a pecan tree in our yard. It was planted sometime before we bought our house and it now produces a fair amount of pecans. It seems that every year I end up thinking about these golden nuggets well after all of the neighborhood squirrels have attacked the tree and eaten or hidden all of these nutty gems. One of these years … I WILL out smart the squirrels and cluster-up the majority of the pecans available but until then I “gather” mine up at the farmers markets. Last week, I picked up a big bag –– some shelled and some not –– with all the intentions of making a pecan pie. Best laid plans, right? After all of the Thanksgiving cooking and cookie baking (more on that later), I was looking to feed the family an easier dish, yet a slightly sweet treat. Some how we ended up with an extra loaf of challah bread –– shocking, I know –– but I think my eyes were bigger than my stomach when I was planning what side dishes to take to our Thanksgiving Day dinner with friends. After making a double batch of this Apple Challah Stuffing, there it was … the “extra” loaf. If you don’t have any Challah handy, don’t worry you could do this Apple Pecan Bread Pudding with Brioche or any other type of slightly sweet bread that you prefer. The thing I love most about bread puddings is that they are not only easy to make but they could also be served for breakfast or dessert. Top this bad boy with some creamy vanilla ice cream — oh my! Or serve it alongside some bacon and eggs and heavenly breakfast is in the house and this was long gone before a pecan pie would ever be.
