One of the best things I have added to my kitchen this year is the Good Cook Stainless Steel Rubber Based Mixing Bowl. I have the 3 quart size, which is perfect for just about anything I need to make. The stainless steel is so easy to take care of and I love how the rubber bottom keeps the bowl from sliding all over the place while I mix. It has become my favorite go-to mixing bowl. I recently used it along with my Sweet Creations by Good Cook 8 inch Aluminum Cake Pan to transform my Thanksgiving leftovers into something a little different for my family to eat.
If you have leftover sweet potatoes or sweet potato casserole, turn it into a quick and easy bread pudding dessert. Scroll on down for the recipe.
My assignment for this year’s family Thanksgiving dinner was sweet potato casserole for twenty people. So of course, I baked enough for about 40 people just to be on the safe side. Plus I wanted to be sure there would be leftovers for anyone who wanted them.
I was able to bring home quite a bit of leftover sweet potato casserole. And although I love sweet potato casserole, there’s only so many times in a week I want to eat it. I decided to try to make a Sweet Potato Bread Pudding. Since the sweet potato casserole already has enough brown sugar, butter and other sweet goodness baked into it, you really just need to add a few more things to turn it into a bread pudding dessert.
Sweet Potato Bread Pudding with Marshmallows
- 5 cups of bread (crusts removed, cubed)
- 1 1/3 cups whole milk or half-and-half
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup sweet potato casserole
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 1/8 tsp. nutmeg
- 1/4 tsp. cinnamon
- 1.5 cups mini marshmallows
- butter (for greasing baking dish)
- Grease an 8×8 baking dish with butter. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- In a medium sized bowl, whisk together the milk, eggs, sweet potato casserole, vanilla, nutmeg and cinnamon. Add bread and let it soak in the mixture for about 10 minutes.
- Bake in 350 degree oven for 35 minutes or until pudding is set in the middle. Carefully remove from oven and top with a layer of mini marshmallows.
- Put back into oven and bake for another 10 minutes or until marshmallows start to brown. Remove and let set for a few minutes before eating.
Note: If you have leftover (cooked) sweet potatoes, just mash them up and add 1/2 cup of brown sugar to the mixture in Step 2.
