Every week during the school year we make and freeze PB&J crust-free sandwiches, but that leaves us with a whole loaf’s worth of bread crusts.
I hated throwing them away, and my dog could only eat so many of them, so we started repurposing them into this awesome, and super easy and tasty Peanut Butter and Jelly Bread Pudding.
This is perfect for a weekend meal, or even for a holiday brunch. We even make it sometimes, and then I potion it out for my daughter to take to school for lunch.
It’d be awesome with some pecans or walnuts thrown in for a little extra texture, too.

Use These Tools
I used my Pampered Chef classic Deep Covered Baker—the stoneware keeps it warm and sucks the moisture away from the food so instead of getting mushy the texture starts to crisp up around the edges. Plus, it looks so pretty when you serve it.
Want to make just half of this recipe with only one loaf’s worth of crust? Check out the Mini Deep Covered Baker. Just like the big one, but cute and smaller—perfect for side dishes or dinner for two.
