Burger buns, all kinds, are perfect for grilling season. Combinations are endless and it’s up to our preferences what to prepare.

Since we usually make grilled food for big gatherings there are always some burger buns left. Banana Coconut Bread Pudding is great way to use leftovers, agree ? πŸ™‚

While shopping of Friday, I spotted green, red and black coloured burger buns and it seemed to be perfect occasion to do something for the blog to demonstrate how these colourful buns could be used with a twist. The only doubt I had was the taste. Since it is only food colour used and not basil, tomato and squid ink concentrates, the taste is perfect to make attractive Banana Coconut Bread Pudding.
Here are the buns photographed before cutting the them into cubes:

I made two twists actually : used coloured buns, coconut instant pudding and bananas, arranged a bit and the result is an attractive and inviting breakfast.

For 7 x 5 x 2.5 inch baking dish, two thirds of each burger bun is enough, soaked in one cup of milk. Also, I would like to emphasize that golden rum could be used and it is mentioned in the ingredients’ list as an option for the adult version of this popular breakfast.
