Cinnamon French Toast Casserole

Are you ready for an incredibly EASY meal that your whole family is sure to love?!  Well, here it is folks!  All 3 of us had a large helping of this yummy casserole and cleaned our plates!  A good meal for Friday during lent!  We had ours with whipped cream on top and syrup!

Did I mention how good my house smelled while this was cooking?!!!!!!!!

We made ours with cinnamon swirl bread, but any kind of bread will do!  The texture was a bit "soggy" I felt, but it tasted good!  If you have little ones who are picky about that kiund of  thing, this may not work for you.

I did not create this recipe!  I just decided to use cinnamon swirl bread.  I found the original recipe here :)  You can use any kind of bread you like!

Cinnamon French Toast Casserole

1 loaf cinnamon swirl bread, sliced into 1/4ths and left out overnight to go stale (I  used two 16 oz. loaves that I found at my grocery store.  They looked about half the size of a normal loaf of bread, so I bought 2)
1 dozen eggs
4 cups milk
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 tsp. cinnamon
2 tsp. vanilla
1/4 tsp. salt

Spray the Slow Cooker insert with non-stick spray!!!
Place all the bread in the Slow cooker.

Mix together all of the remaining ingredients.

Pour the egg mixture over the bread.

Cook on LOW for 6-8 hours.  Admire the smell while it cooks!
The last 1/2 hour or so, remove the lid to let the moisture absorb some.

Dust with powdered sugar,a dollop of whipped cream and/or drizzle with syrup when serving! Mmmmmmmm!

    1. Probably around 6....and I'm going to update this post, but make sure to leave your bread out to go stale before you put it in :)

  2. You can hurry the "go stale" process along by putting the bread in the oven set at 250. And we found that this served 6, but barely (though there are two teenage boys in that number). When we make it, we try to have ham steaks or some other sort of side dish to bolster the number served.

    1. Bread in oven set at 250 for how long? Is it supposed to be toast?

    2. It's supposed to be dried stale bread. 15-20 minutes at 350 degrees

  3. can this be frozen?

  4. At Christmas time I always purchase extra eggnog to make french toast with. I bet you could use that in this recipe too. Oh so craving this now! Can't wait until breakfast time to try it!! Thanks for sharing this recipe!
