Pumpkin Bread Pudding in the crock pot

20131213_115909Came across a recipe during Thanksgiving that I was really wanting to try. Last night was the night. My friend had given us a loaf of a very grainy bread. It was delicious, but realistically we wouldn’t use it for our sandwiches so instead of going to waste, decided to try out the recipe. However, I fell asleep on the couch and woke up at 2 am so I had to get it ready. I ended up combining a couple of recipes (as I usually do) and throwing in my own substitutions. However, I used the exact recipe for the sauce from Simon’s Pumpkin Bread Pudding.  In the end, this was what I ended up with recipe for breakfast pumpkin bread pudding…
