Slice off 6 long pieces approx.1/2"thick and then cut them in half. Spread top of each slice of bread with generous amount of butter. Fan the bread pieces around each other in a 9" round baking dish or pie pan, overlapping the pieces in one layer. Pour the egg mixture over the buttered bread, and let stand 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 400 degrees and sprinkle the pudding with the remainder of the sweetener. Bake until puffed and golden brown, and pudding has set -about 20-25 minutes. Serve warm or refrigerate leftovers and reheat if desired. Makes 5 servings. 4 net carbs per serving.
