Slow Cooker Bread Pudding

4 cups French bread cubes, toasted
2 1/2 cups milk, scalded, cooled slightly
2 eggs, beaten
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
dash nutmeg
dash salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons melted butter
1/2 cup raisins, optional
dessert sauce or whipped cream for garnish

Lightly butter the slow cooker then add bread cubes. In a small bowl, whisk together the scalded milk, eggs, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, vanilla, and melted butter. Pour milk mixture over the bread cubes then add raisins, if desired. Gently, using a large spoon or spatula, press bread cubes down into mixture so all bread pieces will soak up milk mixture. Do not stir. Cover and cook on LOW setting for 5 to 6 hours, until bread pudding is set. Serve with a dessert sauce or whipped cream.
