Brunch Recipe – Eggnog Bread Pudding

eggnog bread pudding

We’ve had a wonderful, family filled holiday with lots of food, drink, and fun {unfortunately it’s ended with a stomach bug making it’s way through the house}. I cooked a lot of favorite recipes which allowed me to update photos on the blog of my delicious broccoli casserole, and fruit & nut wild rice, and I also developed some new recipes like hot mulled wine, and this eggnog bread pudding. Food is SUCH a big part of entertaining, and I’m so proud of how my recipe turned out.

As one of Alexia Foods Tastemaker bloggers, I created this breakfast/brunch dish using their Sweet Potato Rolls and the holiday flavors of eggnog, cinnamon, and nutmeg which make it perfect for a New Years Day brunch too! I made these in small oval baking dishes so everyone got their own portion to pick up and go. It got rave reviews and everyone kept comparing it to monkey bread. I hope you’ll give this one a try before the eggnog is off the shelves!

Eggnog Bread Pudding

  • 8 cups Alexia Sweet Potato Rolls, cooked a day ahead according to package
  • 1 stick of butter, melted
  • 2 cups commercial eggnog
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans

Cut rolls into 1 inch cubes and place in a medium size bowl. Drizzle with melted butter and toss to coat.

Combine eggnog, eggs, sugar, vanilla, & seasonings with a whisk; pour over bread and mix until all bread is coated. Let sit for about 30 minutes so bread can soak up flavors.

Add chopped pecans to bread mixture and fill individual ramekins. Place on a baking sheet and bake at 350 for 20 – 30 minutes, covering with foil when browning begins to occur {about 15 to 20 minutes}.

Serve warm. Makes 6 large ramekins, or 8-10 small ramekins.

Alternatively, you can bake in one larger baking dish for about 35 minutes.

I served these buffet style along with cheesy grits {a Southern favorite}, bacon & sausage, and a fantastic brunch punch. As I mentioned above, this is a great way to ring in the new year – host a midnight buffet or a New Years Day brunch for family and friends. Keep it open house style or small and intimate, and be sure to have some celebratory champagne to make a special toast.
