At many cookoffs, there are tables of glazed doughnuts for the judges and cooks.

Once they become stale,they are about as worthless as day old French bread.

New Orleans chefs,in particular,resorted to making a delicious bread pudding.

Bill Nicholson,a chef with bbq promoter,Arlie Bragg,decided to use these cookoff doughnuts the same way.

Bill shared his recipe with Paula Deen,for her show on the food channel.

Paula made a couple adaptations,as Bill used Jack Black for his whiskey sauce.
