Takes too long.

Marlene73; jsm42 2250298, Thanks for your comments. I want to make this tonight and wondered if you guys used the same ingredients and just baked after overnight refrigeration? If not, what similar ingredient did you use? I don't want to use the "slow cooker", but love the ingredients. Don't want to mess it up the first time out, with nothing else for Christmas breakfast lol. Thanks SDR

I added 1 tsp of Dijon mustard to egg mix and it elevated the flavor but you never taste the mustard.

I have seen this recipe before and cannot see the advantage to it unless you have no oven or are going to be gone for hours. We prepare something similar, put it in a pan the night before, and refrigerate. We pop it into the oven first thing in the morning, and one hour later, it is ready. No scorching or waiting for 3 1/2 hours or getting up early to fiddle with it.

My thoughts exactly.

I agree with you.

My sister and I both made the Slow Cooker Apple Bread Pudding. The directions were to cook it on high. Is that an error as both of our pudding sorched and stuck to the bottom of the cooker? Other wise we love the taste of it and its soo easy to make. Thank you. Esther
