Serve this with a fruit salad and coffee glazed bacon or just by itself with a hot cup of coffee. YUM! It will be the hit of the morning!
1 loaf bread diced (stale works great)
2 cups milk Dairy Free Alternative can be used
1/2 tsp cinnamon
For the Topping:
1/4 cup butter or Dairy Free Margarine Softened
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup chopped pecans
Dash of nutmeg
Instructions Whisk together eggs, milk and cinnamon and pour over diced bread in a large bowl. Cover and let it soak overnight in the fridge for at least 4 hours. When ready to bake, spray the inside of the crockpot (4-6 quart sized works best) to avoid sticking. Pour in Bread Mix. In a small bowl mix together butter, brown sugar cinnamon, pecans and nutmeg. Crumble over the top of the bread mix. Cover and cook on low for 4 hours, or if you are in a hurry high for 2 hours. Let sit for 15-20 minutes and serve!
