The secret to Razoo’s bread pudding
Get the recipe to make this delicious dessert!
This recipe and post is hosted by Razoo’s. They invited several of the media to dinner and shared their secrets for recipes. All opinions are my own.
It’s 5:30 am and my alarm goes off. I shove off the puppy who is hovering right in my face so I can find my way to the hubs who fell asleep on the sofa last night. He’s got to get going early this morning because he’s got an early breakfast meeting and he’s offered to fry a turkey at the office Thanksgiving party so he has to get there and drop it off. He spent last night prepping the bird and making sure the fryer was clean. It’s a bit of a production, you know, considering we only pull the fryer out this time of year each year.
Hands down, there is no turkey better than a fried turkey. One of the perks of marrying into a Louisiana family is that for as long as I can remember, we’ve had fried turkey for each of our winter holiday meals. Yet they ARE a lot of work, expensive, and let’s face it, a little dangerous. (Granted, the infrared friers are total game changers and we changed to that a few years ago.) So worth it though.
With life on the fast track these days, the holidays sneaks up on everyone which is completely crazy because it’s the same time, every stinking year. Like it’s some surprise or something that next week is thanksgiving, but still… I’m all about outsourcing and making things easier and more enjoyable. Let’s outsource that hassle of wrestling that big slimy raw bird – and the headache of timing it in the oven with all the sides and focus on the fun stuff, shall we?
Like, did you know Razoo’s offers 15 lb Cajun fried turkeys for only $64.95? I’ve had it, and if the hubs ever wasn’t up to frying ours, I wouldn’t trust anywhere else! They have the deep injection marinade and the rubbed spices just right. Why stop there? They also have all the sides and desserts, you literally can cater your own Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner!
But maybe you just want more room in the oven so you can make the fun stuff? Like dessert? Yes. Dessert. Let’s talk about dessert. Which is personally, is my favorite thing to make. I have zero interest in making birds. But baking, now baking is my jam so when Razoo’s asked if I’d be interested in learning the secrets of their special recipe for peach and pecan bread pudding, I was all over it because if there’s another thing that Louisiana men like for dessert, it’s bread pudding. And lucky for you, Razoo’s said we can sharing the recipe here because no one really likes pumpkin pie now, do they? This recipe is great because it’s a make-ahead so it’s one less thing you have to do on the craziness of party day.
I hope you enjoy it! And when you’re done with all that cranberry sauce and stuffing, head over to Razoo’s and try one of their new appetizers or a cold beverage and let them do the clean up!
Thank you Razoos for a fun evening of food and learning! Laissez les bons temps rouler!
