Bread Pudding

This recipe came from Emma Williams, our beloved maid when we kids were very young. It seems silly for us to have had a maid in our cluttered and chaotic lives, but Emma was a real lifesaver. And she made a damn fine bread pudding. 2 cups milk 3 eggs 1/2 cup sugar 1 tsp nutmeg 1 tsp vanilla extract 1/4 tsp salt 1/4 cup butter (melted in pan) 1/2 loaf raisin bread (8 slices)

Melt butter in bottom of shallow baking dish. Cut raisin bread slices into cruton-sized cubes. Mix all ingredients and add to baking dish.

Bake @ 350 degrees for ~ 1 hour or until browned.

The lemon sauce recipe from a box of geinger bread mix makes a good topping as well but is not necesary.
