This is easy and tasty. I had this in a crock pot cookbook of mine and searched to see if it was already up and here it is. I use whole wheat bread and it still works, the kids eat it up. My variations are 1/2 cup raisins, 1 tsp cinnamon. I might try adding 1 tsp vanilla next time too. I use rice milk as I have a dairy allergy. I also will omit the sauce and sprinkle it with cinnamon sugar instead as it is easier that way. Thanks for posting!
