Here, a fantastic make-ahead Thanksgiving dessert that does double duty.
Since Thanksgiving is often just the kickoff for a weekend filled with family, friends and festivities, it's a boon to be able to maximize any cooking you've done so you don't miss out on any of the fun. Whenever I've made this awesome pumpkin-brioche bread pudding with caramel rum raisin sauce, I stash the baking dish in the back of the fridge hoping no one will find it. Then on Saturday or Sunday morning, I pull it out, cut the cold, firm pudding into squares and bake them until piping hot. With a drizzle of pure maple syrup or heated leftover caramel-raisin sauce, you've got the easiest and best breakfast to ring in the holiday season.
