Bread Pudding for Breakfast

I love bread pudding but, I'll admit, I'm lazy about baking sometimes. For some strange reason I woke up this morning with a taste for bread pudding but did not feel up to actually making some. I knew if I made a whole pan, I'd probably end up eating most of it.  Plus, I only had one egg left in the frig.
 
You know how I love quick recipes made  in a mug -  didn't I show you a recipe for chocolate cake in a mug some time ago? I remembered that last year I also found this recipe for instant bread pudding you make in a mug and cook in the microwave. It's actually not too bad and today it hit the spot. I've tried it with egg beaters and it's okay that way too. Works in a pinch. And it's so much fun to watch it cook.

 
 
 
Ingredients:
·         1 egg, beaten
·         1/2 cup milk
·         1 tsp. sugar (optional)
·         1 slice of whole grain bread
·         optional favorites - raisins, chopped apple, cinnamon, vanilla
Directions:
Break egg into a mug, and beat with a fork. Add the milk and sugar to stir (and any optional ingredients). Tear up one piece of bread into the mug, and with a fork, press the bread pieces into the egg/milk mixture to moisten. Make sure optional ingredients are mixed well.
Microwave for one minute, and then continue cooking but check every 20 - 30 seconds until you see the bread pudding rising out of the mug.
 

 
 
Sometmes, instead of adding sugar to the egg and milk I skip it and just sprinkle a tsp of syrup on top after it's done. Yum.

I used to have a very similar recipe from Weight Watcher's that I made every morning for months! It was a good mix of protein, fruit(it called for an apple)and the bread. I think it used artificial sweetener, skim milk and a little cinnamon, also. Thanks for the reminder--I am going to start making this again!
