One of the great things about being a food blogger is the people you meet along your journey.  I have made fast friends with Lorie Hutson from The Spokesman Review, our local paper and she has graciously added my recipes in the Food section many a time.

I recently had coffee with her to “catch up” and in passing she asked if I had any kind of easy brunch dish that would be perfect for Easter Sunday.  I had just made a Sweet Potato Crusted Quiche, but figured I’d whip something else up that was more breakfast-y.  Is that a word?  Anyway, this recipe comes together quick and can be baked a head and reheated if necessary.

You can kick this bread pudding up a notch by tossing in chunks of diced apples, chocolate chips, raisins or dried cranberries…the possibilities are endless!  I hope you enjoy it as much as we did.  Check out all of the other great recipes that were in the recent food article here:  Simplicity of Brunch.
