Chef Jamie Barnes with What the Fries was in the kitchen to make this twist on bread pudding.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (QC Life) - Bread pudding has been around since the 11th century.

It was initially called poor man’s pudding because it was created as a way to prevent food waste in the lower class.

Stale bread was soaked in hot water and squeezed until it was dried out, and then sugar and spices were added.

Then in England in the 13th century, it became known as bread-and-butter pudding. They would soak the bread in fat and add eggs and milk.

Luckily, bread pudding has come a long way since then. You can even get them in tot form.
