Crock Pot French Toast

8:55:00 AM

So the other day I was trolling Pinterest looking for fun organizational ideas for the home, when I realized, I don't think organizing is fun at all...it's work, and I don't like to do it; so I quickly switched gears and started looking for things that were fun, you know, like crock pot recipes.

After searching for a short time (and admittedly playing for a long time), I found this pin, which looked very interesting, and yummy.  It intrigued me for a few reasons, 1) my kids are french toast fiends and 2) they come by it honestly because I am too.


So, here's the recipe, we used plain white bread, but I think if I made it again, I'd use a cinnamon raisin bread, or a hearty sour dough, or homemade sandwich bread, or even bagels...but for this morning, plain old wonder white did nicely.

Recipe:
1/2 loaf of bread torn into half pieces (or enough to fill your crock pot about half way)
6 eggs
2 Cups Milk
1 Tsp Cinnamon
1 tbsp light brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla 
Mix eggs, milk, cinnamon, brown sugar and vanilla together in a bowl.  One by one dip the bread pieces in the egg mixture and then lay into a pre-greased crock pot until all the bread pieces are in the crock.  Pour remaining egg/milk mixture over the bread. Cook on low for 4 - 6 hours, depending on the heat that your crock pot puts out. (Mine tends to cook a little hot, so I cooked mine for 4 1/2 hours.)  Let set for 20 minutes with the lid off before serving.

The kids really enjoyed this.  Heck, I enjoyed it.  I especially loved the outside ring of "toast" because it was crispy and delicious.  We served ours with syrup and fresh cut fruit. Nom nom nom.

If you try this, let me know what you did differently, a different bread?  Different spices?  I think I may want to add some nutmeg and leave out a good deal of the brown sugar next time around - and use raisin bread.

I must give credit where credit is due - the original pin and recipe came from this site,which I am starting to adore.  Thanks!
