How to Make It

Step 1    

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Step 2    

In a 3-quart baking dish, place the bread cubes in an even layer, then drizzle evenly with the butter.

Step 3    

In a medium bowl, whisk together the half & half, sugar, eggs, vanilla, and 1 teaspoon salt. Pour the custard over the bread in the baking dish and press bread to soak up liquid. Let stand 10 minutes.

Step 4    

Bake the bread pudding until the filling is set and it is golden on top, about 40 minutes. Let cool to warm then serve.
