DRIVE BY BREAD AND BUTTER PUDDING
Then cut up some ciabatta slices, buttered the slices, sprinkle the smallest amount of sugar on the bread, slice it into little squares and toss it all in a dish.
Pour the eggy mixture over the bread and turned the oven on to 375.
Pouring a little caramel sauce on while it's puffy and hot... the more in my bowl.
I poured a river of thick and sticky warm caramel down over for it to settle into the hills and valleys of my breakfast. It's warm and crisp and soft and thick and sticky and sweet and salty. As good as you think it is - it's better. I officially don't care what happens for the rest of the day.
Put some sugar, maybe 3/4 cup? in a saucepan, I put a couple of tablespoons of water to moisten it and get it started and put it on high heat.
NO stirring, swirling is fine.
Swirl until it's the color you like then let it go one more second, take it off heat and pour in heavy cream until it's the color you like. It WILL boil up so use a BIGGER pan than the size you think you need.
Boil a minute or so then add more cream if it needs it, add a little salt and a little vanilla.
There you go, it'll thicken a bit when it sits. I like it pourable when it's cold so I added a little extra cream, oh yes I did.
