Bacon, Egg & Cheese Bread Pudding


  • 6 King's Sweet Hawaiian Dinner Rolls
  • 10 ounces Bacon, bake until crispy & crumble See recipe for Perfectly Baked Bacon, set aside 1/4 of the cooked bacon for topping
  • Olive Oil Spray
  • 5 large Eggs, whisked

  • Parsley Flakes for topping


  • Pre heat oven to 400 degrees F with the rack in the middle. Spray four 8 ounce ramekins or Mini Cocottes with olive oil cooking spray. Place ramekins on a baking tray for easy oven transfer.

Bread pudding is pretty much one of my favorite foods on earth. Savory or sweet, there’s just nothing better than egg-y, bread-y goodness. This recipe looks oh so good!

I’m the same way Maryea! Savory or sweet bread pudding is dreamy :)

This reminds me of that last sweet potato recipe that went viral nuts of yours, but made into adorable little cups and with bread, not potatoes. I love King’s Hawaiian rolls. Seriously those things are soooo good! pinned

Thanks so much Averie! I hope it goes viral like that ~ just as amazing & so versatile for any time of day :)

First you caught my attention with King’s Hawaiian bread, which is brilliant by itself. Then, the idea of a savory bread pudding pulled me in even further. And this is for breakfast?! The holy trinity of recipes has been achieved. Can’t wait to try this!

ha!! Awesome Evan ~ love it “The Holy Trinity” hopefully you can dig into this really soon :) Have a wonderful weekend!

Thanks so much Jenny! Have a great Easter weekend with your family :)

I absolutely LOVE King’s Hawaiian Bread Rolls… but with bacon, eggs and cheese? LOVE! I think my mom would enjoy this on Mother’s Day… thanks!

What a winner combo Maria. Cheese, bacon and eggs? That is when the magic happens :-) Congrats on your FB milestone.

I don’t have any ramekins. I’m assuming you could throw it all into a big casserole dish? Sounds absolutely amazing!!! I love everything bread pudding. And, Hawaiian rolls? That’s just brilliant!


12 Kevin @ Closet Cooking April 20, 2014 at 7:14 am

I could definitely go for some of these for breakfast!


13 bev @ bevcooks April 25, 2014 at 5:47 am

Um I wouldn’t mind spending the night in that.


14 Melissa August 28, 2014 at 4:35 pm

Wonder if you could make this the night before and bake in the morning? And if you made it all in one pan, not ramekins… what would be your guess on size?


15 Marla August 28, 2014 at 6:44 pm

Hi Melissa! Im thinking this recipe is best prepared at the time you need it. The eggs can be so temperamental. I’ve not tried it in a larger pan.


16 Bree A. October 2, 2014 at 2:14 pm

I think I just found what we are having Christmas morning!


17 Marla October 3, 2014 at 4:32 am

Oh yay! This savory breakfast is a winner :)
