Most amazing bread pudding

I don't post a lot of dessert recipes. Bread pudding is another that is so, so good, but so, so bad for you. I save this one for parties.

Ingredients:

For the pudding:
1 loaf of French Bread
1 quart of milk
3 eggs
1 1/3 cup sugar
2 cups blueberries
2 tablespoons vanilla
3 tablespoons butter

For the sauce:
1 cup sugar
1 stick butter
3 tablespoons bourbon (more to taste)

1) Tear bread into pieces and soak in milk for 1 hour.

2) Beat eggs with sugar and vanilla. Add to bread mixture. Sir in the blueberries.

3) Melt 3 tablespoons butter in oblong baking dish. Pour pudding into baking dish, cover, and bake at 350 for 1 hour.

4) While the pudding is baking, make the sauce. In a saucepan, melt the butter. Once the butter is melted, add sugar and stir until sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat and add the bourbon.

5) Remove the pudding form the oven. Cut into serving cubes and place in individual bowls. Top with whiskey sauce and serve.
