There is something to be said for the holiday season. The traditions, the food, the flavors! Do you have a food or flavor that makes you feel like smiling?
Eggnog does it for me! It is creamy and full of sweet spices like nutmeg and cinnamon. You can use dairy-free or regular eggnog in this recipe. Add a fresh homemade whipped cream, and I could live on the stuff! Even my picky one will eat this eggnog bread pudding.
What makes this gluten free bread pudding recipe even more special is that it was made with Franz Gluten Free Mountain White bread. If you haven't tried Franz gluten free bread yet, you are in for a special treat.
I have used Franz Gluten Free Breads in a few recipes now. Check out this Gluten Free Ricotta Stuffed French Toast recipe and this Roasted Acorn Soup with Homemade Pumpkin Spice Croutons recipe.

Recipe step by step directions:
Making a gluten free eggnog bread pudding is so easy! With just a few simple steps, you can put it together.
Step 1: Open the special bag that the Franz bread is in. I call it a special bag because it makes the Franz bread shelf-stable until you open it. This really came in handy when Houston was besieged by the hurricane.
Step 2: Cut the bread into cubes. Don't forget to include the crust. My kids hate crust, but when it is hidden in a casserole like this gluten free eggnog bread pudding, they love it!
Step 3: Soak the gluten free bread cubes in eggnog and sprinkle with cinnamon and other spices. I let the bread soak for 20 minutes so that it falls apart when saturated.
You can soak the bread pudding overnight in the refrigerator if you like a very soft bread pudding.
Step 4: Bake the bread pudding at 350º F for 25 minutes. Cool and top with whipped cream.
Franz Gluten Free Bread would also be delicious in this Classic Gluten Free Bread Pudding.
