PUMPKIN PRALINE BREAD PUDDING

Posted on

Pumpkin Praline Bread Pudding is a new addition to the holiday table for us. Traditionally our Thanksgiving dinner each year includes the traditional dishes, such as turkey, green bean casserole, roast Brussels sprouts, and sweet potato casserole, as well as the same desserts: apple, pecan, and pumpkin pies.  For the most part, everyone likes them and expects them each year.

Let me know if you tweaked it to make it your own. I love how people customize recipes for their own tastes. I look forward to hearing from you.
