French Toast is probably one of my most favorite breakfast indulgences! This French Toast Casserole has everything I love about French Toast and turns it into an overnight delight. No standing over the stove, 1 piece cooking at a time. You’ll throw all the ingredients into the crock and let it do it’s magic while you’re getting your beauty rest. The smell when you wake up will make your mouth water!
Sweeten your presentation of this casserole up by adding some powdered sugar sprinkled over the top with a dollop of whipped cream and/or some maple syrup! Everyone in your house will thank you!

Prep. Time: 12 hours 10 minutes

Ideal slow-cooker size: 6-qt.
2 16-oz. loaves cinnamon swirl bread, sliced into ½-inch pieces and left out overnight to go stale
1 dozen eggs
4 cups milk
¼ cup brown sugar
2 tsp. cinnamon
2 tsp. vanilla extract
¼ tsp. salt
1. Spray the slow cooker with nonstick spray.
2. Place all the bread in the slow cooker.
3. Mix together the eggs, milk, brown sugar, cinnamon, vanilla, and salt.
4. Pour the egg mixture over the bread.
5. Cover and cook on Low for 6–8 hours.
6. The last ½ hour or so, remove the lid.

Tip: Don’t skip letting the bread dry out overnight, or you’ll have a very soggy casserole. If you’re in a pinch, put it into a 350°F oven until it’s slightly browned, then let it cool for 15–20 minutes.
