Bread Pudding

Bread pudding is our favorite way to turn stale bread into a savory strata or delicious dessert. For sweet bread pudding, we love adding fruit and caramel, or for a more savory spin, leeks, spinach and mozzarella. One of our best bread pudding recipes uses croissants instead of standard bread, which is mixed with vanilla bean–infused milk and chocolate, and served with ice cream. The croissants provide a richness that go beyond basic bread pudding, and the chocolaty custard is impossibly decadent. For an easy, summery strata, toss small slices of baguette with zucchini, onion and tomatoes for a light, colorful side dish. Whether you’re looking for dinner or dessert, Food & Wine’s guide to bread pudding has a recipe for every occasion.

Achieving perfect, flaky, buttery layers that are so representative of croissants can seem like an impossible task if you don’t bake often. But the trick to a great croissant lies in a carefully calculated process of folding dough with a layer of cold butter repeatedly back onto itself. If you can fold a simple letter into thirds, then you can likely make a great croissant. Make your own pastries, or use them to create decadent chocolate, pumpkin and caramel bread puddings--or even as a flaky, toasted bun for hot dogs! Here, 5 great ways to use croissants.
