Slow Cooker Eggnog Bread Pudding and a Thanksgiving Link Up

I know there are some of you out there who are going to be scrambling at the last minute for a Thanksgiving dish. Don't worry I've got you covered today.

Not only am a sharing a easy peasy dessert recipe that even the non baker can wow their guests with.... but I will be sharing my favorite Thanksgiving dishes as well as a link up of other bloggers and their favorite Turkey Day foods!

Bread pudding is a favorite in our house. I can't count the variations I have made over the years. This being one of the best and easiest!

All you need.... a slow cooker, some old dry bread, eggs, milk, eggnog. Seriously... that's about it folks. Just set it and forget it.

Slow Cooker Eggnog Bread Pudding


1 loaf day old bread ( I used brioche)
7 eggs
2 cups eggnog
1 cup milk
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tbs cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
Additional eggnog for serving   


Tear bread into 1 inch pieces. In a large bowl whisk eggs, eggnog, milk, sugar, vanilla and spices together. Fold in bread pieces until coated.

Pour into your slow cooker. ( I use a 5qt)

Place slow cooker on high for 3-4 hours or low for 6-8 hours. The bread pudding is done when the center has set and no longer jiggles.

Serve hot with cold eggnog poured over the top. Optional add a few dashes of cinnamon or nutmeg on top of your dished pudding.
