  • 3 cups stale bread cut in ¾ inch cubes
  • 2 cups milk
  • 2 eggs
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 1 TBSP vanilla extract
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • 4 TBSP butter, melted/cooled

Bourbon sauce (SO GOOD):

  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 stick butter
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup whiskey, to taste

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place bread in a bowl with the milk and let soak while you beat eggs and sugar until thick, then stir in vanilla, cinnamon and butter. Add the soaked bread crumbs and let stand for 10 minutes. Transfer to a greased baking dish and cook about 45 minutes. Near end of baking time make your bourbon sauce by beating yolks until thick. Melt butter and sugar in saucepan and pour this mixture over the yolks, beating constantly until well thickened. Stir in bourbon by hand, and pass the hot bourbon sauce separately.
