Tips

To cube and dry bread, preheat oven to 300°F. Cut 1/2-inch bread slices into 1/2-inch cubes. Spread bread cubes in a single layer in a 15-1/2x10-1/2x1-inch baking pan. Bake, uncovered, for 10 to 15 minutes or until cubes are dry, stirring twice. Cool. (Cubes continue to dry and crisp as they cool.)

For easy cleanup:

Line your slow cooker with a disposable slow cooker liner. Add ingredients as directed in recipe. Once your pudding is finished cooking, spoon it out of your slow cooker. Once the food is out of your slow cooker liner, simply dispose of the liner. Note: Do not lift or transport the disposable liner with food inside.
