This was wonderful and so easy to make. I love bread pudding but the kids weren't so sure; however, they all enjoyed it. Used almost 8 cups day old French bread and 2% milk. Bought a can of organic pumpkin pie mix by mistake and was searching for a good recipe in which to use it. Glad I found this!Thanks for sharing the recipe!

Great twist on bread pudding and I love that you make it in a crock pot!

I made this for Thanksgiving and everyone loved it. The only thing I did differently was to run it in the oven, when cook time was done in the crockpot. I like it a little drier, that's why i ran it in the oven, but it is an awesome recipe. The sauce is to die for!

Perfect for a chilly autumn evening with a cup of coffee or hot cocoa!!! I made in 3 quart casserole in the oven and used my own canned pumpkin. Added 1/2 tsp. ground ginger and other than that I would not change a thing!! Hubby absolutely loves this and 2 larger servings confirmed it. Thanks for sharing!

This is an excellent recipe! I used a pumpkin that i baked for hour and a half, pureed in my food processor and then used homemade wheat bread, it turned out wonderful. The first time I overcooked it in the crockpot (3 hours is plenty on high) but it still tasted fine. Highly recommended!

DS pronounced this one of my best efforts yet !!! I served it with softly whipped cream instead of the sauce. I pureed my own pumpkin and used diced white bread - truly delicious. I cooked mine on high for 3 hours and it was puffy and fabulous when done.

This is yummy. I didn't get to the sauce, but maybe for the leftovers. Thanks. I've been looking for somewhere to use a can of pumpkin pie filling I had.

This easy recipe reminded me of pumpkin pie -- the taste was so rich and wonderful, with plenty of pumpkin flavor coming through. Like another reviewer, I used cubed French bread (actually, day-old bread from our nearby Jimmy John's sandwich shop... my fiance loves their bread!), and worked fine in terms of flavor and overall texture... BUT, I think because my bread was especially dry and I probably used a bit too much, the pudding ended up a bit dry ('ll use no more than 7 cups of cubed French bread next time); after three hours of cooking, I turned the crockpot to "warm" -- my guests were still full from dinner, so we wanted to wait for a while before dessert... but by the time I checked on it again an hour later, the pudding had burned all around the edge. The rest of it tasted great, though, especially with the sauce! :) Thanks for a wondeful autumnal recipe that I will make this again.
