Karen’s Killer Fixin’s: Apple-Cheddar Bread Pudding

It’s time for Karen’s Killer Fixin’s!

Over the years, I’ve filled two 4-inch, 3-ring binders with my own creations as well as recipes my family and friends were willing to share with me. I simply love to cook and want to share that love with my readers.

So every Friday, I share one recipe I think you and your family might enjoy. It might be a main course recipe. A cookie or baked item. Candy. Salads. Whatever strikes my eye and fancy…which today is APPLE-CHEDDAR BREAD PUDDING!!

I love bread pudding. It’s one of the few desserts I’ll splurge occasionally.  Finding a good bread pudding can be a challenge, however. I don’t like mine too soggy.  This is a good one to try if you’re like me and want plenty of flavor!

I hope you enjoy today’s Killer Fixin’s. Happy eating!

    1. You’re welcome, Carol. I hope you enjoy the bread pudding. It’s a nice change from the (equally) scrumptious, sweet version we usually see. Thanks for stopping in to visit with me. Have a lovely week!
