Cooking with Grace....Bread Pudding

Out Of This World Bread Pudding

(3) Black Dog Bakery Muffins (or 3 cups any other stale bread) (I had 2 blueberry & 1 lemon poppy seed kicking around - thanks to a lovely housewarming gift from  my neighbor Kristen Gosselin)
1/2 c vanilla sugar
1/4 c maple syrup
2 regular eggs +1/4 c egg whites
1c Almond Milk
2 tsp vanilla

1/4c Granola
1/4c Oats
1/2c chopped pecans
1/2c brown Sugar
1/2 stick softened butter

Crumble bread/muffins into a greased baking dish, combine ingredients & pour over - let soak 10 minutes. While soaking blend ingredients for topping - drop topping over bread mix & bake 45 minutes @350 degrees or until bubbly/lightly brown. Let cool for a few minutes to set, before serving.

I topped mine with a dollop of Creme Fraiche :)

A poem by Destin Hockaday, guest of the Beach Plum Inn's 2013 American Heroes Saltwater Challenge

I am in a place...
where natives treat you like natives,
treat you like neighbors,
greet you with favors.
A place where a drive-thru means lunch at a friends house,
Can you guess where I am?
I'll give you a hint the scent of sense can not be earned with cents,
A place where one forgets about complacency needs,
start fishing with ease,
not to mention inspiration is free.
I'll tell you where I am.
People in this harbor don't harbor negative vibes,
they instead cast lines of respect and friendship...
you WILL bite!
The people of this island are veterans for veterans' hope.
And I hope it remains.
