  • 4 Bruegger’s Cinnamon Raisin bagels
  • 4 oz Bruegger’s Plain cream cheese, softened
  • 2 tbsp butter, softened
  • 3 medium eggs, beaten
  • 1 qt heavy cream
  • 2 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup good quality maple syrup (for Maple Syrup Sauce)
  • 2 tbsp dark brown sugar (for Maple Syrup Sauce)
  • 2 tbsp butter (for Maple Syrup Sauce)
  • 2 tbsp whole milk (for Maple Syrup Sauce)


Bread Pudding

  1. Preheat oven to 350° F.
  2. Butter a baking dish (an 8”x8”x2” foil pan will work well) and set aside.
  3. Tear the bagels into pieces with your hands and drop into a bowl.
  4. Add the milk a little at a time over the bread.
  5. Mix it with your hands and make sure the bread absorbs the milk.
  6. In a small bowl, combine the eggs and the sugar using a whisk.
  7. Pinch the cream cheese into the egg/sugar mixture and mix.
  8. Add the vanilla extract. Then pour over the bread.
  9. Pour the bread pudding into the buttered dish, spreading it evenly in the dish.
  10. Place the dish in a shallow roasting pan and fill the pan with 1” of boiling water, or halfway up the side of the baking dish.
  11. Cover roasting pan with foil and bake for 35 minutes.  Remove foil and continue baking for 15-25 minutes, until an inserted knife comes out clean.

Maple Syrup Sauce

  1. Combine all ingredients in a sauce pan.
  2. Bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer until sauce is heated through.
  3. Serve bread pudding into individual portions.  Top with sauce and enjoy!
