Panettone Eggnog Bread Pudding

IMG_8486

I went searching for the perfect bread pudding and saw so many different variations I liked that I ended up creating my own.  With a little maple syrup drizzled on top it’s a decadent holiday breakfast.  Serve it with a scoop of ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream and you’ve got dessert.

Several of the recipes I saw gave directions for assembling the ingredients the night before and chilling in the fridge until morning.  I’m not sure how well the panettone would hold up.

Cranberry Sauce

IMG_6931

This is how my grandfather made his cranberry sauce.  The only change I’ve made from the original is to cut down on the sugar by replacing the water with apple cider.  The sweet and tart is nicely balanced with perhaps a slight emphasis on tart.  If you prefer your cranberries sweeter, add another 1/4 cup of sugar.  Another yummy choice would be to use orange juice in place of the apple cider.
