My Slow Cooker Obsession: Bread Pudding and Spinach Artichoke Dip

Written by Natalie

Slow Cooker Bread Pudding Recipe

My slow cooker is a huge part of my cooking. I love the fact that I can set it in the morning, go to work and when I get home a scrumptious meal is waiting for me. But I relegated the slow cooker to main dish functions only. It turns out, it can do it all! Behold a dessert and appetizer all made easily and painlessly in the trusty slow cooker. These two dishes are PERFECT for pot lucks, or football Sunday as they can be kept warm and delicious in their slow cooker home.

This Bread Pudding (pictured above) is comfort food to the max. It’s perfectly sweet, has a soft crunch from pecans and is creamy thanks to a blend of both evaporated and condensed milks. This is now a staple of my slow cooker repertoire.
