What you will need:
- 1/2 loaf of bread
- 2c. milk
- 1tsp. cinnamon
- 1Tbsp. brown sugar
- 1tsp. vanilla
Spray the inside of the crockpot with cooking spray and cut or crumble your loaf of bread into the pot (I double the recipe because I have a large family). In a bowl, whisk eggs (I use at least a dozen), milk, cinnamon, brown sugar and vanilla. If you add extra ingredients, you can add them here or chop them up and stir them into the crockpot.
I usually add cream cheese, syrup, and a Tablespoon of instant coffee. Sometimes we add fresh or frozen fruit or preserves, and this time we added bacon and ham so it was a meaty french toast. Experiment with your family's favorite flavors and make your own variety!
Pour the mixture over the bread and stir till all the bread cubes are moistened. This works with your stale, hard bread also. Put the lid on the crockpot and cook on low for about 6 hours. Overnight for a premade breakfast, or all day for a yummy breakfast for supper treat!
