The Easter Bunny may love carrots, but at our house, the Easter Bunny gets bread pudding. We love bread pudding on Easter Sunday not only because it’s delicious but also because it’s easy to bake and serve after Easter Sunday services. It’s also versatile — you can fill that casserole pan with savory or sweet fillings!
