I am just getting started with experimenting with breakfast recipes in the crockpot (make sure to try my crockpot breakfast casserole recipe!) and this crock pot french toast recipe is another winner! It is so sweet and moist you don’t even need to top it with syrup (although you certainly can if you want).
This would be a great recipe to throw together at night before you go to bed. If you have a timer on your crockpot, you can just set it to start 4 hours before you are ready to eat it. If you are uncomfortable letting the mixture sit out on your counter before it starts to cook (we keep our house pretty cool, so this wouldn’t bother me), you can set your crockpot to the Warm setting and let it cook for 8 hours that way (you will want to experiment with your crockpot to make sure that this method works with your model – it was fine with mine).
Hosting a brunch? Throw everything together in the morning while you are getting everything else ready. It will be one more hands-off recipe that you can have ready without making too much of a mess!
The secret to the success of this recipe is the french bread. Buy a baguette that morning and slice it up about an hour before you are ready to put everything together. You want to give the bread a little time to react with the air and get a little dry, but not too dry.
And of course, you can omit the pecans if you like – I just happen to love the combination of brown sugar and pecans!
To make this crock pot french toast recipe, you will need:
- 1 loaf French Bread
- 8 Eggs
- 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
