Blueberry Banana Bread Pudding

In addition to bacon, blue cheese and pizza, blueberries also top the list of my food obsessions. I love eating the little colorful berries like they’re candy, straight out of the farmers market carton. I also love cooking with them.  I got the idea to make them into a breakfast bread pudding when my Mom was coming to visit.  She’s a very picky eater but loves french toast and blueberry muffins, so I decided to make a hybrid of the two and Blueberry Bread Pudding was born!

As I began preparing the recipe Saturday morning I saw a couple ripe bananas sitting in the pantry and thought, “well that would be a tasty addition” (yes, my thoughts get their own quotations 😉 ) so I threw a sliced up fresh banana in with the blueberries. I also decided to incorporate the brown sugar into the recipe in the form of a crumble right on top.  The result was a new sweet and delicious breakfast dish!
