14 Sweet & Creamy Bread Puddings for the Holidays

Bread puddings are great holiday desserts. They free form, in a way, so you can tinker with the flavor and ingredients once you get the proportions correct. For example, a plain bread pudding can be flavored with citrus zest for holiday flair. Or, you can stir in chocolate chips or dried fruit for added texture. There is no limit to what you can make! Bread pudding is great for entertaining because you can serve it up on a trivet and let people scoop up as much as they want. Along with a cup of eggnog or glass of wine it is the perfect dessert!
