Bread pudding with blueberries and made with Happy Eggs

For everything from winter potlucks to summer picnics, bread pudding always hits the spot! Make it with whatever ingredients you have on hand, such as berries, nuts or raisins for a heartwarming treat that everyone will love.

If you want something fancy to serve at Easter or Mother’s Day, just add a scoop of ice cream on top with a drizzle of caramel or maple syrup. So many mouthwatering possibilities…

One of the keys to delicious bread pudding is using farm-fresh eggs. We love the eggs from Happy Egg Co, whose hens forage freely on small family-owned farms in the Ozark Woodlands.

Organic Free Range Happy Eggs

Not only do you get a real homestyle flavor, but you can also feel better knowing the eggs are produced without space restrictions. The hens get 8 acres of space to roam around in unlike the typical 1-2 square feet of caged or even cage-free hens. They’re also free of pesticides, hormones and antibiotics.

Along with this bread pudding recipe, we love to use Happy Eggs make Hash Brown Egg Nests and Holiday Croissant Boats too. Happy Eggs come in either free-range and organic free-range, and I use both interchangeably. You can find a store nearby here.

How to Make Happy Bread Pudding

Bread pudding is surprisingly easy to make and there are just 6 ingredients before optional additions.

  • Happy Eggs: free-range or organic
  • Challah bread
  • Butter
  • Sugar
  • Milk
  • Vanilla extract, or almond extract
  • Berries or nuts (optional)

If you can’t find challah, then any plain white or whole wheat bread works just fine. Leftover or stale bread is great – if it’s too chewy, put it in the microwave for 30 seconds to soften.

Can bread pudding be made ahead of time?

This Happy Bread Pudding is a fabulous make-ahead dish whose flavor improves after a day or two. Simply cover the baking dish with plastic wrap and store in the fridge for up to 3 days. You can also freeze it in an airtight container or ziptop bag for up to 3 months.

To reheat, put it in the microwave on full power for 1-2 minutes, or bake for 10 minutes at 350°F (175°C). Heating in a nonstick skillet for several minutes over medium heat often works as well.
