This is a yummy treat to have cook overnight for breakfast. The kitchen smells so good in the morning. It is a treat worth waking up to!

 it more like bread pudding or Bananas Foster                                                                           
  • 1/2 cup raisins (optional)

 2.In a large mixing bowl, combine the apples, cinnamon, allspice, brown sugar and salt. Add the milk and maple syrup and mix well.
 3.Pour half of the apple mixture over the bread in the slow cooker. Add in the raisins and banana at this time if using Gently press down on the apples to ensure the liquid is absorbed by the bread.
 4.Spread half of the soy sausage over the apples, followed by the remaining bread.

 5.Top the bread with the remaining sausage, followed by the     remaining apple mixture. Press on the apple to ensure the liquid is absorbed.
