I used the above Paula Deen recipe to make a bread pudding. I've never made it before. I used a tip I learned from another recipe and added rum raisins.
basically put raisins in a cup, cover with rum, and let it stand 30 minutes. I poured it over the top.

I have to say it was delish. I didn't make the sauce, I topped it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream while it was still hot. Here is a pic.

Oh, and I didn't use crusty Italian bread. I had a half a loaf of white bread and used that instead.

I bought some at Ralph's in Pelican Pointe Louisiana and at French Market Express in Natchitoches. Wonderful stuff.
