Chocolate Chip Bread Pudding & Whiskey Sauce

6 whole eggs

4 cups of cream

1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

pinch of salt

10 cups of cut up bread: French bread, brioches, challah, croissants, white bread – pretty much anything goes!

1/2 cups of chocolate chips

Whisk together eggs, cream, salt and vanilla in a large bowl. Add the bread and chocolate chips. Stir until everything is coated. Pour into sprayed baking dish or individual ramekins. Bake at 350 until custard has set (set = not wet or jiggly). If making in a large pan, cover with foil for 30 minutes. Then remove foil and continue baking until set. Baking time varies with size of pan and individual oven. Can be made ahead of time and refrigerated. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream and caramel or whiskey sauce.


Whiskey Sauce 

3/4 cups of brown sugar

1/4 cup of sugar

5 egg yolks

1/2 cup of whiskey

pinch of salt

6 oz. butter (unsalted)

Whisk together all ingredients except for butter in a small sauce pot. Cook over medium heat, whisking constantly until mixture is thick enough to coat a spoon or spatula. Remove from heat and add butter, using hand blender. Serve warm over ice cream. Store leftover sauce in airtight container in refrigerator.
