sandwich served with plantain chips / YUM!

this is the reason I eat at the Columbia House / best bread pudding I've ever eaten
garnished with shaved chocolate and fresh mint leaves

When traveling in Florida I always try to eat a meal at Columbia House in Sarasota.  They have been dishing up their infamous  lunch, "1905" Salad and Spanish Black Bean Soup with warm crusty bread, since 1905.  This soup is flavored with sausage BUT a delicious 100% vegetarian Cuban Black Bean soup is available.  The soup is served with rice but they will happily serve without at your request. 

The real reason I keep returning to the Columbia House is the White Chocolate Bread Pudding.  This dessert is absolutely THE BEST I've ever eaten.  It's dense, moist and flavorful, served warm with melty chocolate.  The ingredients include white chocolate, Cuban bread, milk and eggs.  It's topped with Don Casimiro Classic Silver Rum sauce. 

I'm on the hunt for a similar recipe.  If anyone has a GREAT bread pudding recipe, PLEASE SHARE.
