Cranberry Eggnog Bread Pudding Recipe @pinch

A holiday twist on classic bread pudding. It is creamy and the mix of flavors is perfect. The eggnog flavor is slight, not in your face. Then, you get an occasional burst of cranberry. This is quite a decadent holiday dessert and will be a delicious ending to the meal. After cooking a huge Mexican dinner tonight, my family wanted more out of me, lol. I have been trying to use all the food I already have before going shopping and this is what I came up with for dessert. Who knew this would be a hit with the family? Hmm... this one might be on the breakfast menu next Christmas. I hope you enjoy my take on an old havetime favorite!
