Take-out Tuesday, Bacon & Eggnog Panettone Pudding

Here’s a twist on a breakfast casserole that will also help you use up your leftover Panettone and eggnog


We enjoyed this for a festive New Year’s Day brunch watching the Rose Parade

New Years breakfast

It is so easy to make the day before and put in the oven the next morning


I always cook bacon in the oven if I don’t need the fat for sauteing something else.  I think this method really enhances the flavor, not to mention how easy it is to cook and clean up.


Drizzle the cubes with melted butter


Mix in the bacon pieces and then pour the eggnog mixture over all


Leftovers reheat beautifully in the microwave also
