Bread Pudding

Bread pudding is something that my mom made quite a bit when we were growing up.  It is a great way to use up bread that is not so fresh, or those icky end pieces. You can serve it warm or cold, and it is also perfect for breakfast or a dessert.
Bread Pudding
6 eggs
1 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
2 cups milk
8 slices of bread
spreadable margarine or butter
Start with 6 eggs (aren't they so pretty?  They are darker blue and green than it shows in the picture.)
Crack the eggs in a 2 quart casserole dish and beat well.  Add sugar and vanilla...
Mix well and add 2 cups of farm fresh milk.

Stir together.  Spread margarine or butter on the bread and cut it into quarters.

Push the bread pieces into the egg-milk mixture one at a time.

Sprinkle the top with cinnamon.  Bake at 350 degrees for about an hour... it will get all puffed up and nearly firm.

Pretty easy, right? Enjoy!
