Lookin for Pumpkin Bread Pudding Recipe

I watched ShowDown with Bobby Flay last night and he challenged this woman to thankgiving dinner.  Even though he lost, his dessert got rave reviews - it was pumpkin bread pudding made with pumpkin bread.  It looked so good!  I have been searching the web to try and find a similar recipe (he has not put his on the food network site) but can't find anything similar.  Most of the PBP recipes call for regular bread with a pumpkin custard poured on top.  But HIS was made with a pumpkin quick bread. I have neve made a bread pudding with quick bread and am not sure how to adjust for that.   I would love to serve this for thanksgiving dinner.  I have already made pumpkin pie three times already since the pumpkins hit produce section and would love to try something different.  I have also made pumpkin muffins twice so far - I just love pumpkin!

while the sauce is not there, I suspect the pumpkin bread pudding is similar or the same


 


I am hunting it down as well....as I want to make it.....I am thinking of topping it with ree's hard sauce and whipped fresh cream topped with dried cranberries

Thanks.  I just printed it out.  I think I am going to try it with a bourbon sauce.  I am going to watch the episode again to see what he does different.  This recipe is similar but I think he changed a few things on the show.  Everybody raved about this dessert, he should have won. That lady only won because of her mashed potatoes.  Anybody can make mashed potatoes and I personally have only made them once for thanksgiving because my son requested them.  Nobody else wanted any even though they WERE really good.
