*I saw a similar recipe on Sandra Lee Money Saving Meals but I modified it and added pudding. I used one large box of pudding and Ryan said it needed even more. I made it for Sunday dinner and it was a big hit, especially for Jace who loves pudding and coconut.

The Buttermilk Custard sounds like it would make this dish top notch.
