South Of The Border Bread Pudding Recipe

Step 1

In a small saucepan, combine the orange juice, sugar, cinnamon, and raisins. Bring to a boil, stirring. Pour over the bread and toss to mix. Add 2 cups of the cheese and the almonds, and toss. Turn into a buttered 1 1/2 quart baking dish, and sprinkle the remaining cheese on top. Bake in a preheated 375F oven 15-20 minutes, until the pudding is heated through and the cheese is melted. Serve warm, topped with cream or ice cream, if desired.
