    Charmed's Note:

    I got this recipe quite a few years ago, and it's still my favorite bread pudding. It's attributed to the Palace Cafe in New Orleans. I don't make it too often because it's so rich, and expensive, but once in a while for a special occasion... Warning...do not serve to weight watchers! You can freeze the leftover egg whites for future use. Sometimes I'll keep a couple out and make some meringue cookies.

      This is one of the most requested dishes around the holidays at my house. I have even learned that you can heat the filling and topping in the microwave instead of wasting all that time over a stove with a double-boiler. Yes, it is a little on the expensive side to make, but it tops off the best of a Thanksgiving or Christmas Holiday meal. Thanks for submitting.....others will enjoy.

      This made a pretty tasty end to dinner tonight. Made a half recipe to use up some egg yolks left from another recipe. Used some day old marked down French bread, so only real expense was the white chocolate chips. I also used whole milk instead of cream. I did kind of guess on the amount of chocolate since I don't have a scale and for the sauce, I just added a bit of milk to make it slightly runny. Would be good with some nuts sprinkled in to give it a textural difference. Also, next time, might cut bread thicker and cube it instead of whole slices.

      Certainly rich and tasty, but I agree with the reviewer who judged it "too eggy". Not trusting my own less-than-wowed reaction, I took several squares of this to my nail/hair salon for the 5 women there to sample and "review". They ate it up, and loved it, but what made me decide it's hardly worth the effort and expense was my manicurist's comment: "Mmm! But honestly? It tastes a LOT like warm Jell-O pudding from a box. Or banana pudding without the bananas." My faint-praise three stars, therefore. For the cost and calories (aaaagh!) it should have been a LOT more "wow"...
