bread pudding Gridiron Grub: Add A Sweet Component To The Game
Dessert often gets neglected at tailgating functions, but whip up a batch of this homemade slow cooker bread pudding and your tailgating buds will be begging you for more. This recipe is an easy, low-maintenance treat that can be quickly prepped prior to the big game. Simply combine all of the ingredients, cook it slow and low for a few hours and the tantalizing scent of cinnamon will tell you when it’s ready.

Slow Cooker Bread Pudding

Ingredients:

  • 8 cups cinnamon bread, crusts removed and cubed
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 cups milk
  • One-fourth cup sugar
  • One-fourth cup butter, melted
  • One-fourth teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • One-fourth teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • Half to 1 cup raisins or craisins

Directions:

Place cubed bread into a three-quart or larger greased slow cooker. In a bowl, whisk the eggs, milk, sugar, butter, vanilla, nutmeg and cinnamon.  Stir in the raisins or craisins. Pour the mixture over the bread and stir gently. Cover it with a lid and cook on low for three hours or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Each serving can be topped with caramel sauce and/or whipped topping, if desired.
