Grilled Strawberry Bread Pudding

Happy National BBQ Day!
How are you celebrating?    
Me?  I'm having bread pudding baked in foil on the BBQ.  How easy is that?  Even those less than BBQ inclined can make this one work.

Rule of thumb:  BBQ's should be fuss-free.  The primary focus, having a great time with friends and family.  Second to which should be delicious, charcoal-y, foodie goodness, and cold beverages.  Summer Grillin' done right.  Enjoy!

Grilled Strawberry Bread Pudding

4 cups whole wheat bread cubes
1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup white sugar
1/4 tsp cinnamon
2 eggs
1 cup strawberries, sliced

confectioners' sugar for serving

Whisk together milk, sugars, cinnamon and eggs.
In large bowl add bread cubes and strawberries.  Pour milk mixture over top and allow to sit for 30 minutes.

To make foil packet:  Lay a large sheet of heavy-duty foil or a double layer of regular foil on a flat surface.  Butter sheet and add bread mixture in centre of the foil.  Bring the short ends of the foil together and fold twice to seal:  fold in sides to seal leaving room for steam.  Grill over indirect heat, turning a few times, 35-40 minutes.

Dust with confectioners' sugar before serving.

Serves 4
