1 loaf challah or fruit nut bread or a mix of leftover rich and flavorful breads
2 cups half-and-half
2 cups heavy cream
1 vanilla bean, split lengthwise
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup marmalade or another jam of your choice
I love making all kinds of bread pudding and I really love using leftovers so this is on of my favorite recipes. I travel a lot and so stay in hotels where I come across those cute little irresistible jars of jams. They always seem to make it into my suitcase, and into my kitchen at home. This is a great way to clear the shelf of them, only to make room for the next batch, I've noticed.
