Crock Pot Bread Pudding
Bread Pudding Crock Pot Recipe
A crock pot bread pudding is the best option when you are cooking for a family or you just want to make multiple meals ahead of time. It is easy to make a large batch in a crock pot (slow cooker). While I love my Mom's recipe that you cook on the stove top and in the oven, it is intended more for a single serving.
One of my favorite aspects of a slow cooker bread pudding recipe is that you don't need to scald the milk. Standing in one spot and just stirring kind of drives me nuts. With a bigger serving it would just take even longer. So when I want to get my breakfast meals prepared ahead of time, for the mornings that I have to go to work, I prefer to use my crock pot.
When it is done cooking I can leave some serving dishes in the fridge and freeze some more for later. It is also perfect for a nice family breakfast. It is something you can do even on a busy morning. Since you can start it the night before and let it cook overnight (if your crock pot has a timer).
If you want to make it into a dessert you can serve it with ice cream or top it with some caramel sauce.

This is the perfect crock pot to cook in. It has a timer on it. So if you can't be there while it is cooking it will automatically switch to warming mode when the cooking time is up.
