Stale bread and blueberries are combined to make the dish known as blueberry bread pudding, which is then baked till golden. This comfort cuisine, like French toast casserole, is suitable for brunch or dinner. By chopping up stale bread into bite-sized pieces and letting them soak in a smooth custard made of milk, eggs, and sugar, you can make bread pudding at home. Then, bake the bread pudding until it is crunchy on the outside and tender on the inside by sprinkling the mixture with fruits, almonds, chocolate chips, or raisins. For added luxury, top the dish with cream cheese, whipped cream, vanilla ice cream, or cranberry preserves.

Basic tips

 Try to limit yourself to fresh blueberries. Before adding frozen blueberries to the bread mixture, make sure they have been completely thawed. Otherwise, instead of being roasted and crunchy, the frozen berries will melt and make the dish soggy.

 The chewiness and crispness of bread pudding might vary depending on the type of bread used. Challah, enriched French bread like brioche, or rustic loaves of sourdough or white bread are the traditional options. If you use a loaf of rye bread or any dense whole-grain bread, you will need to alter the liquid amount because they won't absorb the milk and eggs in the same way.

 3 eggs

 1 cup granulated sugar

 1/2 tsp lemon zest

 5 to 6 cups of day-old torn bread

 Add the butter and lemon juice after the lemon zest. To combine, stir.

 With the lemon sauce or another sauce or topping, serve the bread pudding. You can choose from bourbon sauce, vanilla sauce, or blueberry sauce.
