How to store bread pudding

I made bread pudding for the first time and was wondering how I'm supposed to store it. Do I keep it in the fridge? Can I freeze it?

Thank you in advance.

  1. Keep it in the fridge. Growing up, my grandmother used to make it all the time, and we used to eat it all at one time, so there was no need for storage. Now, I make it a few times a year, and refrigerate any leftovers. It is, after all, on the line of a custard, with the egss and milk. To tell the truth, I have never tried to freeze it.

    1. If you don't put it in the fridge it will get moldy pretty quickly. You can always rewarm in the microwave if you don't want to eat it cold.

      1. Because of the milk and eggs, bread pudding does not freeze well.

        1. i understand the words, but i don't think they go together. store? bread pudding? only bread pudding i've ever seen was inhaled in about 30 seconds by my family.

            Well, this was only the first try. Next time they'll jazz it up a little and there won't be any left-overs.

              Hey my bread pudding is tasty but I made enough for 6 people and there are only two of us...hubby is not a big bread pudding guy but has eaten quite a bit. I had half left when I posted this (a little less now).

                It's good for breakfast, so you won't have to store it long.

          2. I freeze my (already cooked) bread pudding all the time--freezes beautifully.
