Food safety, bread pudding
Are you channeling your best self with this comment? (If you're not sure, check out our Code of Conduct.)
Nancy is a trusted home cook.
By custard, do you mean a sauce to garnish the bread pudding or (maybe) the egg-milk mixture to bake in the pudding?
Either will hold up about 3-4 days cooked in the fridge.
I would bake the pudding Thursday, hold in the fridge, serve Sunday at room temp or slightly warmed in oven.
