Blueberry Cheesecake Bread Pudding... OH MY GOODNESS!! Life just got a whole lot sweeter.

With the overwhelming response to my Basic Low Carb Yeast Bread, I really wanted to bring you some new ideas for using it not only for sandwiches and french toast, but in other ways that can help your Trim Healthy Mama journey.Disclosure Statement

 

Brenda from over at Texas Brew Salsa came up with this wonderful recipe that we tweaked and made over and over until it came out with the right texture and taste profile… Many Thanks to her for all her efforts as well as using her THM Staples to help get this right!!

(You really should check out her salsa it’s amazing!! )

I’m going to apologize in advance because this post is going to be a bit longer than most, but I took photos of “how to” put this together … it sounds much more complicated than it really is … so please give it a chance… You will be happy that you did, I promise!!

Please leave me a comment if the photos are helpful or not. I really do enjoy and appreciate your feedback.

    I absolutely love this and I do not like anything with the name bread pudding in it. I made this in a 13 by 9 pan and it works perfectly. I love this hot but oh my goodness I put it in the refrigerator overnight and when I cut it the next morning and when I cut it again this morning it’s like this wonderful cheese cake with Crispy sugar topping on it all I can say is you better go make it soon or you’ll regret it.

    OH MY GOODNESS! Cheesecake and Bread Pudding all in one? Have I died and gone to Heaven? Cause I think that in Heaven all they eat is cheesecake and Bread Pudding, right? These are 2 of my favorites, and to think that this is a healthier version? You’ve hit all the highlights! So excited by this!

    Question: has anyone tried this with almond milk instead of half/half, egg whites instead of whole eggs and fat free cream cheese? You could almost make it a fuel pull that way.
