To some, Bread pudding is simply cubed stale bread that is soaked in a mixture of milk, sugar, and eggs, and then baked.
To others, it is so much more! When soaked in custard and mixed with your choice of sweet or savory ingredients, leftover biscuits are the rich, unexpected ingredient that brings a twist to bread pudding. Don’t have enough biscuits for a whole recipe? Consider also mixing in some bread, or cutting the recipe down to serve two.
Swap the bread with leftover biscuits, and prepare the recipe the same way. The buttermilk biscuits will add even more delicious Southern flavor. Try this easy recipe with fresh blueberries that can be served for brunch or dessert.
