Stress-free Entertaining Options:
Assemble the Night Before:
Assemble follow steps 1 - 4. ****But don't heat the cream and milk, just add it cold. It's really important to keep eggs, cream, and milk very cold while assembling this dish the night before. Then cover tightly and store in the coldest part of the refrigerator overnight. Add 15 minutes to the cooking time. Cover the bread pudding with foil and cook for the first 15 minutes. Remove foil and continue cooking until golden brown and well set. Use the skewer test to make sure it is completely cooked in the center.
Cook The Day Before:
The bread pudding can be baked one day in advance. Reduce cooking time by 10 minutes - cook it just until eggs are set. Before reheating, combine 1⁄2 cup milk and1⁄2 cup cream in a bowl and stir - you may not need a full cup. Only use as much as you need to remoisten the pudding. Drizzle it over the pudding; break up the mixture gently with a spoon so the milk mixture will run through the bread. Bake 25-30 minutes in a 300-degree oven. Serve warm.
