Crock pot French Toast

I have been trying all day to right a post about politics. But I just can’t do it..

I am in the process of completely shutting down my Facebook because I can’t stop fighting with friends and family about my political beliefs. I had to delete a lot of people and block a few people. Social media is supposed to be social, but as of late it just makes me feel anti social. When I get done on Facebook I am sick to my stomach and so heated I can barely see straight.

So lets talk French Toast instead!

This is a fun little recipe that is really great if you are having company for the weekend or if you want to wake up Sunday morning and not have to lift a finger (except to scoop this deliciousness out). We have made it several times with lots of different additions and I can truly say that this is an incredibly versatile dish.

The original recipe is here.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 loaf of bread
  • 6 eggs
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1tsp cinnamon
  • 1tbsp brown sugar
  • 1tsp vanilla

Recipe:
Rip the pieces of bread in half and put them into a greased crock pot. Beat the eggs, milk, cinnamon, sugar, and vanilla together and pour them over the bread. The original poster recommends to dunk your bread pieces individually if the bread is hardy or stale, I used fresh bread so I cannot vouch for whether or not this works. Turn the crock on low overnight. In the morning, remove the lid about 15-30 minutes before you are ready to eat and the top will get all crusty and toasted.

It is like a bread souffle, so yummy! We added raisins and nuts and served it with my FIL’s homemade maple syrup. It is delicious. I also think it would be great with fresh berries, or even chocolate chips! What would you add to this recipe?
