    I like this recipe with all types of bread. Each kind of gluten free bread creates a slightly different taste. Depends if I’m serving it for breakfast or dessert which bread I use. My favorite is day old cinnamon rolls, especially if the cinnamon rolls have nuts and raisins. Fresh peaches added are nice too. Sometimes I use half-n-half instead of milk. Delicious!

    A little touch of bourbon goes a long way in making this an extra special gluten free dessert. I learned this in New Orleans while on a photography assignment years ago.
