So maybe you went and got yourself an awesome bread maker, and now you are making chemical-and-preservative-free tiny loafs of bread which you think of as raw toast, or on which to enjoy very delicious gourmet sandwiches. But maybe there is only so much toast you can eat (blasphemy?). Or instead of a sandwich, you enjoyed some leftover squash pie for your noontime meal. What do you do with the remainder of that tiny loaf, before it goes stale? Slashfood suggests that bread pudding is possibly the greatest answer to that question. The recipe is for leftover nazuki bread pudding, but any leftover bread can be used if you try to scale the wet ingredients to the amount of bread you have on hand. And in the end, you've got one of the nicest lazy-weekend breakfasts in the world, and everyone wins.
