Cranberry Apple Bread Pudding

You don't need bread for this bread pudding - flavorful stuffing forms the base of this updated dish that features applesauce, cranberries and an exquisite brandied butter sauce.


Heat the oven to 350°F. Spray a 2-quart shallow baking dish with vegetable cooking spray. Place the stuffing into the dish. Sprinkle the cranberries over the stuffing. Beat the eggs, milk, sugar, applesauce and vanilla extract in a medium bowl with a fork or whisk.  Pour the milk mixture over the stuffing mixture.  Stir and press the stuffing mixture into the milk mixture to coat.  Let stand for 20 minutes.Bake for 40 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Serve warm with Brandied Butter Sauce (see recipe below).
