We love breakfast meals that can be prepped and assembled the night before. Our Homemade Cinnamon rolls are a favorite sweet recipe that can be done the evening before and finished in the morning for fresh sweet rolls. We also have a savory Sausage Breakfast Casserole and a Smokey Zucchini Casserole for a hearty, healthier start to your day.

Does Bread Pudding keep overnight?

Bread Pudding is a great make ahead dish that can be assembled and stored in the fridge the night before a busy morning. Simply prep the ingredients in your baking dish, cover and place in your fridge. Just bake it in the morning!

It also reheats well, if you have leftovers they can be stored in the fridge for 3 days. When you are ready to finish them up, simply remove and reheat for a few minutes in your microwave.

Why is my Bread Pudding mushy?

If you are finding that your Bread Pudding bakes mushy, there are a few things you can try to prevent this from happening

  • Let the bread sit out and become slightly stale. This will reduce the moisture in the bread which will help it retain its shape and texture during the baking process.
  • You can toast the bread slightly before assembling the bread pudding if you wish.
  • Be mindful of your overall liquid ratio. Too much liquid is usually the main culprit in soggy Bread Puddings.
  • Try swapping out the fruits you use. Opt for fruits with lower liquid content, and toss berries in a light dusting of flour to help absorb the juices that they release during the baking process.

Making the icing for your Bread Pudding

If you are choosing to top your Bread Pudding with a homemade icing, you can whip it together quickly while the breakfast casserole is cooling. Now, it’s ready to serve warm with a bit of pure maple syrup.

The icing is a simple combination of powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla extract. It brings a beautiful touch of sweet for those special occasions.

Do you have any ideas for us gluten free folks to modify the recipe? For instance, does a large loaf of French bread equal 1 of the smaller gf loaves commercially available?

Hi Jj, I'm sure this recipe will work fine with a gluten free bread option. I found this gluten free french bread (affiliate link) if you have trouble finding it in the grocery store. Best of luck and Happy Holidays!
