Crockpot French Toast

These days my crockpot and I have a really good relationship.
No really, we love each other.
I give, she gives, and we just understand each other.
Anyway, I recognize a good thing when I see one, and let’s be honest…
I’ve been working with her a lot.

Last weekend, Nadav’s mom made us the yummiest challah, and we all know that challah makes for the best kinda french toast.
(andd if you didn’t know that before, now you do hehe)
I found a few recipes for crockpot french toast and combined them to make my own version
(oohh look who's getting adventurous now =P)

This was the deliciousness I came up, and it was boooommmbbb

Ingredients:
1 day old loaf of challah bread
2 cups whole milk
2 cups heavy cream
6 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 pinch kosher salt
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1/4 brown sugar

Instructions:
1. Slice the challah into 1/2 inch slices and place in a large bowl.
2. Whisk together the eggs, milk, cinnamon, vanilla, and salt.  Pour over the challah, cover, and place in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours
3. Lightly coat the inside of the crockpot with cooking spray (I apparently didn’t use enough & had to scrape some of the bread off of the crockpot)
4. Arrange the challah and the mix in the crockpot.
5. Top the challah with a little bit of brown sugar and pecans
6. Put the cover on the crockpot and cook on low for 8 hours, or on high for 4 hours
7. Serve with maple syrup, fruit, and maybe some whipped cream... yuuummm

Pin It


Now can someone please explain to me why bread must taste so ridiculously good, but be so ridiculously bad???
Just sayin...

Wishing you a happy day

We'll be cleaning up Mission Beach.

Lauren said...

yup, that seals it, i need a crock pot ASAP. that french toast looks amazing. it reminds me of a baked challah french toast my mom (the brunch queen) makes!

Clare said...

ummm that looks incredible! i am drooling, even though i already ate a huge breakfast today! i know challah probably makes this french toast the best, but do you think it would work with regular bread (i live in a developing country and fancy bread doesn't exist here!)? i'll have to try it and let you know what i figure out! thanks for sharing your recipe :)

Alexa said...

Oh my goodness the most brilliant idea ever! Why have I not thought of this?

Anna Elder said...

Whyyyyyy did you have to share this?? ;) French toast is my favorite breakfast ever. I like using Hawaiian bread too. So thick and yummy. And yeah, probably the worst of the breads. Figures.

Tommy got me a crock pot for Christmas, and I love it! Most recently we made corned beef and cabbage for St.Patricks day, and it wmyas awesome. I love going about day, and thinking, "I'm cooking something delicious right now!"

That french toast looks AMAZING. I love pecans, and french toast is one of my favorite breakfast foods. Such a good idea to throw it in a crock pot!

Nicole Marie said...

holy crazy things you can do with the crock pot! i made lasagna once in it but it turned out terribly. i'm sure it was my fault though

Sam said...

I already had ice cream today but that sounds really good too! Yes please!

Katherine Toyoko from Paper Gatti said...

Zomg! My mom and grandma are coming to visit in a couple of weeks. Now I know what to make that will be delicious but keep the amount of kitchen time to a minimum -- my place is just too tiny for extra people haha.

Rach said...

I die. This looks like a melt in your mouth delicious recipe. Even that picture of the brown sugar and butter in the pan looks amazing. I didn't even know you could make stuff like this in a crockpot!

Catherine said...

Mmm... this looks delicious. I think I need to use my crock pot more. i'm just not that great at planning in advance.

XO,
Catherine
