I had a house full of sick peeps this past week and this Slow Cooker French Toast Recipe was a lifesaver. I love being able to toss breakfast into the crock-pot and have a hot breakfast ready with not much effort. I really liked my Slow Cooker Oatmeal and my Slow Cooker Breakfast Casserole that I shared with all of you. Both of those slow cooker recipes are now my favorites. We have been making both of those quite often. I decided it was time to try French Toast in the Crockpot and I am so glad I did. Simple and tasty. French toast has always been one of my favorite breakfast foods I think I let all of you know that when I shared my French Toast Roll-Ups Recipe with you. Trying French Toast in the slow cooker was on my “to do” list.
Slow Cooker French Toast
If you are wanting to have a yummy hot breakfast without all the effort and cleanup, grab some bread, eggs and milk. I grabbed some of the French loaves for $1 each at Remke so this was quite a inexpensive breakfast.
1 loaf French Bread
2 cup Milk
1 tsp Cinnamon
1 tsp Sugar
3/4 cup Brown Sugar
1/2 cup softened Butter
2 tsp Cinnamon
1/2 cup Pecans
Cut bread into roughly 3/4″ thick slices.
Mix together all topping ingredients in a small bowl and set aside.
Spray the inside of your 6 qt. crock with non-stick spray.
In another bowl beat together eggs, milk, cinnamon and sugar and set aside.
Place a layer of bread into your slow cooker. Then top with a layer of topping. Repeat for remaining layers.
Pour egg mixture over the bread.
Cook for 4 hours on low.
Since receiving in my new crock-pots for Christmas I really have been cooking in them a bunch. We had went quite some time without hot breakfasts as we were pressed for time. The slow cooker recipes have really been great. They have allowed us to enjoy many more hot breakfasts.
I suggest really keeping an eye on your French Toast at around the 4 hour mark and make sure it is not cooking to quickly. Four hours was perfect in my slow cooker. I know this French Toast does not look gorgeous but WOW the flavor is awesome. I had a couple pieces that were “wetter” than the rest but they still tasted great.
And, if you are like me you need to load on the maple syrup, ha ha! Next time I think I will try fresh fruit on top. There is great flavor cooked in. I think I am just so use to pouring on the syrup.
