2 pounds Texas-style bread
4 cups granulated sugar
7 cups milk
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup liquid eggs
1 #10 (104 ounces) can peach pie filling
Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Set the fan speed to high.
Cut each slice of bread in half and then cut each half in thirds. Place the bread in a large mixing bowl. Pour the milk over the bread and let it soak for 10 minutes. Beat eggs in another mixing bowl. Add sugar, peaches (including juice) and vanilla and mix well. Fold the peach and bread mixtures together.
Brush the bottom of a large pan with butter. Slowly pour the mixture into the pan.
Bake for 45 minutes. Use a paring knife to check for doneness. The knife should insert easily and come out clean. If the pudding is not done, continue to cook and check in 5-minute intervals. Allow the bread pudding to cool to room temperature.
Ladle Jack Daniels Sauce over the bread pudding and serve.
Makes 15 pieces.
