Brunch: Crock Pot French Toast

December 5, 2010 Ella
Tags: , , ,

HEY!!!! THIS POST IS 2+ Years old— I updated it recently to help answer the questions and comments and traffic this post has received  The updated version is HERE.

From December 2010:

I love big weekend brunches!  Breakfast is a pretty big tradition in my family on the weekends.  Both my mom and I worked in diners when we were in college and nothing beats my mother’s omelettes with a side of corn beef hash or sausage.

I can also say I hate all the dishes involved after a nap worthy brunch fest.   How many pots and pans can you dirty with bacon or eggs, french toast and pancakes— and lets not even deulve into waffles. By the time you muster the energy, and actually get through a sink full, I’m keen to make another total kitchen mess with cookies, pie, or whatever recipe (holiday cookies!?!) I’m experimenting with that week. Good thing my boyfriend doesn’t mind rolling up his sleeves and lending a hand.  I think that is worth a breakfast in bed on a lazy Sunday afternoon.

I have tons of brunch recipes that until now I haven’t posted.  I’m hoping to get into a routine of posting Sunday Brunch receipe here and there on Saturday evenings perfect for a late Sunday morning Brunch, and heres a great one, with limited dishes involved.

Crock Pot French Toast:

I got a crock pot for Christmas last year after having to borrow my mom’s for last years Thanksgiving dinner extravaganza.  Sad to say I packed up and stored it away after greatly over estimating the time it would take to cook chicken tikka marsala while I as at work.  Burning curry is nothing you want to arrive home to.  My aunt gave me this recipe after raving here and there about bring her crock pot full of fluffly ready to serve french toast at work.  She brings it in a couple times a year a round holiday season and serves it to her office.  Its soooo easy to make and its wonderful to wake up on a weekend morning to the smell of ready to dive into French toast– set your coffee maker the night before and you won’t have to lift a finger before breakfast.

I made half of what her recipe calls for as my crockpot is a bit more on the petite side.

Ingredients:

1/2 loaf of bread.

I don’t recommend wheat bread generally though honey wheat is pretty good as french toast.  Cinnamon Raisin Swirl is to die for, or a challah bread works too. A loaf of day old french or italian is also best as french toast.

Break up bread in half pieces.

Combine:

6 eggs, 2 c milk, 1 tsp cinnamon, 1 tbsp light brown sugar, and 1 tsp vanilla.

Pour over bread if you’ve already placed in the crock pot.  I was worried I find out the next day that not all the bread had gotten saturated so I dunked my pieces individually and layered them. I’d recommend this if you are using a hardier or more stale bread.  Set crockpot to lowest setting.  Cooking takes at least 6 hours.

In the morning you will find a fluffly, bread pudding-souffle like breakfast.  Remove the lid about 15 minutes before its done and it will brown and toast.  Serve with warm syrup!!  Serves 4-6 depending on how hungry your guests are.

    Hi Ella – Thanks for this recipe. I’ve heard about it and can’t wait to try it. Sounds like a great addition to a Christmas morning brunch especially with authenic maple syrup from Vermont. also – thanks for the plug for the omelette queen!!

  • 2. Lissa  |  December 8, 2010 at 6:10 am

    I am definitely planning this as part of my New Year’s brunch! What a fantastic idea!

  • 3. Kristin Marie  |  December 9, 2010 at 3:11 pm

    This looks amazing. How do you serve it? Just spooned out?

    • 4. Ella  |  December 10, 2010 at 12:06 am

      yeah just spoon it out. Its like a bread pudding almost and with hot syrup its unbelievable!

    • 5. cucukachoo  |  August 22, 2012 at 1:06 am

      no honey…you use chopsticks and dental floss!!!! good luck with that!

        HaHaHaHa!!!!

  • 8. Ricki H  |  December 20, 2011 at 2:06 pm

    Do you let it set overnight? I’ve seen some recipes say to refridgerate overnight (or 4 -24 hours) before baking. Anyone have any ideas on this? I never learned how to cook so any input would be GREATLY appreciated!

    • 9. Ella  |  January 12, 2012 at 1:45 am

      Nope no refrigeration. Put in the crock pot and cook away overnight.

  • 10. Laura  |  December 26, 2011 at 4:59 pm

    My friend just told me about this recipe and she used the crock pot bags for easy clean up! Can’t wait to add this to next years Christmas brunch!

    • 11. Ella  |  January 12, 2012 at 1:45 am

      I totally agree– no fuss no muss

      • 12. Dianna  |  August 20, 2012 at 10:35 pm

        Why wait till Christmas. Why not now. Sounds scrumptious

    • 13. Sara  |  August 19, 2012 at 5:04 pm

      Do crock pot bags leach any chemicals into the food?

      • 14. Gabesboba  |  October 4, 2012 at 12:38 pm

        I’m guessing they leach out something and it’s probably chemicals, wouldn’t want that in my french toast. And besides, using liners in to a sustainable practice! How hard is it to clean a crock pot!?!?!?!?

    • 15. nina  |  August 21, 2012 at 5:33 pm

      don’t cook in plastic, it’s not safe. just spray your crock-pot and if you forget or it doesn’t work so well just let it soak.

      • 16. sue  |  October 14, 2012 at 10:16 pm

        never understand why ppl want to use those nasty plastic leaching bags in a crockpot. Probably ones that don’t realize the harm on your family’s health despite what the company tells you. Seriously I own several crockpots, the ones that lift out and they are SUPER SUPER easy to clean out.

      • 17. Joyce  |  December 22, 2012 at 12:44 pm

        stop spraying too, full of chemicals!

      • 18. Yo_momz  |  December 23, 2012 at 8:27 am

        I use the liners and have had no issues! I hate cleaning my crock pot (even if I spray!) I won’t use my crock pot without them! I even store the box of liners IN my crock so I won’t forget them! ;)

      • 19. Ann  |  May 28, 2013 at 9:00 am

        Make your own cooking spray with oil and water

      • 20. kryellan  |  July 2, 2013 at 3:35 am

        People don’t seem top understand the plastic that leeches into your food causes cancer. I know, “everything” causes cancer these days, but specifically breast cancer. If I have to spend 5 minutes washing my crock pot to avoid putting my family and myself at risk, I’ll do it.

      • 21. Jo Skidmore  |  January 12, 2014 at 11:31 pm

        No liners no spray. Rub the crock with a little butter on a paper towel should help with clean up

  • 22. Granny Enchanted  |  July 13, 2012 at 10:03 am

    I highlighted this blog post on my blog today. Thank you. http://scrapbookalphabet.blogspot.com/2012/07/fridays-guest-freebies_13.html

  • 23. Jeannette  |  July 13, 2012 at 12:36 pm

    Can it cook longer than 6 hours I don’t want to over cook to much.

  • 24. Andi  |  July 14, 2012 at 12:53 am

    Just made it! Looking forward to the morning!

  • 25. SandraStarWilliams  |  July 16, 2012 at 4:38 pm

    I sound dumb but how many pieces of bread for half a recipe?..Just cooking for two….

    • 26. Kari  |  October 8, 2012 at 5:16 pm

      Since 1/2 a loaf serves 4-6, I would make a 1/4 of a loaf for 2-3. Just half the recipe

  • 27. Ang  |  July 21, 2012 at 11:01 am

    One suggestion, make sure to grease the crockpot before putting in the bread and liquids. This can quickly turn into a stuck on mess and waste quite a bit of your dish.
    I also recommend using very thick bread, like texas toast, for this so it keeps it’s shape and doesn’t turn into a giant glob.

  • 28. BusyWorkingMama  |  July 25, 2012 at 3:05 pm

    YUM! This looks wonderful!

  • 29. karen  |  July 26, 2012 at 11:28 pm

    Have you ever tried biscuit dough? The Pillsbury ones? I wonder if that would expand too much?

    • 30. ValerieE  |  November 12, 2012 at 9:15 am

      If you put raw dough in there, it’s not going to absorb the egg mixture, it’ll just create a crust, and be regular biscuits inside.

  • 31. Tracy  |  August 2, 2012 at 8:07 pm

    If I have a larger crockpot would I just use a full loaf instead. I was thinking of doing the cinnamon swirl.

  • 32. Karen  |  August 5, 2012 at 7:07 pm

    So, if I turn in on at 9pm and wnnt to serve at 9am it won’t be overcooked? Would love more breakfast recipes!

  • 33. Ellen S  |  August 7, 2012 at 10:20 am

    Before you make this delious mixture, be sure to spray the inside of the Crock Pot for easier clean up. I do this EVERY time I use my CP, mainly because I am extremely lazy.

    • 34. Joyce  |  December 22, 2012 at 12:46 pm

      Have you read the label on that spray can as to what you are eating? Butane, like in a lighter, you want to eat this?

      • 35. Logic  |  July 2, 2013 at 3:47 pm

        Butane is a gas at room temperature, and it evaporates almost instantly. It’s a propellant, not a food additive.

        Please learn what you’re talking about before demonizing something.

      • 36. trueblueta2ood  |  November 10, 2013 at 3:45 am

        You can easily buy organic cooking spray. I’ve yet to find organic liner bags. ….

      • 37. Sugarbush  |  November 24, 2013 at 11:05 am

        I bought an oil sprayer (pampered chef sells one) and then u can add olive oil…I’m Leary if the spray cans u buy in the store too, butane yuck!!

      • 38. mumm1  |  December 7, 2013 at 10:37 pm

        You are overthinking it… It doesn’t appear that much hydrocarbon residue actually makes it into the food and the amount that does is well within the safety limits. You are probably doing more harm to your body breathing near a running cars, or using a cell phone….

  • 39. sarah  |  August 7, 2012 at 9:46 pm

    sounds awesome….do you think I could get away with using egg whites?

  • 40. Cynthia  |  August 8, 2012 at 1:31 pm

    for the full crockpot size I am assuming you would double everything…but 12 eggs seems a bit excessive doesn’t it? I am wondering if it would need longer to cook when you have more in there……my big concern is that a loaf of bread would barely cover my family, though this seems more rich than your regular french toast.

  • 41. sabrina rose  |  August 8, 2012 at 1:56 pm

    could i start this in the morning say at 11 am and let it sit till tomorrow morning in the crock pot in low heat setting

    ?

  • 42. Rosie  |  August 8, 2012 at 6:43 pm

    If you doubled this recipe and cooked in a larger crockpot, would you cook it longer? How long?

  • 43. Becky  |  August 10, 2012 at 5:56 pm

    Mine turned out bland and not good… I must have done something wrong

    • 44. shelby  |  September 5, 2013 at 10:42 pm

      Put cinnamon over each layer of bread instead of in the egg mixture. I also cooked mine with blueberries in between each bread layer

    • 45. alexa  |  October 30, 2013 at 5:10 pm

      I used Italian bread & followed this step by step. It was awful for us too.

  • 46. debbie wiese  |  August 10, 2012 at 9:14 pm

    Can I double this recipe???? If I do, Will I need to cook it longer?? Also Will it taste nasty if I use wheat bread?

  • 47. Jessica  |  August 11, 2012 at 2:39 pm

    Has anyone tried this recipe yet? I would love to know how it turns out??

  • 48. gt  |  August 14, 2012 at 2:23 pm

    When you say “lowest setting,” do you mean “Warm” or “Low?”
    Thanks!

  • 49. Alisa  |  August 15, 2012 at 6:21 pm

    If you dunk the bread, do you still pour the remaining milk mixture over the bread, also? Thanks!!

    • 50. LeslieC  |  November 13, 2012 at 1:26 pm

      I did and got scrambled eggs on the bottom. I don’t think so but maybe i did something wrong. This recipe was ok but I still prefer french toast cooked on the stovetop. This would be nice when time is an issue

  • 51. Micaela Torregrosa-Mahoney  |  August 16, 2012 at 2:27 am

    Hi! A friend pinned this recipe and I’m intrigued… so, is the recipe you’ve posted the half-recipe? I have a 6.5 Qt crockpot, so I want to know if I can double the recipe you posted or if that’s the original your aunt gave you :)

  • 52. Danica  |  August 16, 2012 at 9:40 am

    Is the recipe here the halved version? And what size is your crock pot? I have a huge crock pot, wondering if I should double this?

  • 53. pam  |  August 16, 2012 at 11:31 pm

    when you say the lowest setting, is that low, or warm? My crock has warm, low, and high,

  • 56. Lexy  |  August 17, 2012 at 6:06 pm

    What about if you have a family that isn’t a huge fan of the bread pudding consistency and likes a more toasted French toast? Is there a way to make it turn out a little bit drier? Take the lid off sooner than the last 15 min of cooking?

  • 57. karen  |  August 18, 2012 at 7:36 am

    I did not have good results with this receipe….. bread burnt on the bottom and sides and really the rest was soggy.

  • 58. Cherie z  |  August 18, 2012 at 9:44 pm

    Does this really brown in 15 minutes with the lid off??? Or did you brown it in the oven ?

  • 59. Stephanie  |  August 19, 2012 at 7:19 am

    Hi! I made this lastnight! It smells amazing! But I have two questions…How do I know when it’s done? & mine is burnt around the bottom and edges (smells like burnt sugar. Is there a trick to not burning? (the inside is edible but it’s pretty mushy so I just don’t know if it’s done! A very promising recipe though. I wanna keep trying it to get it right! Thank you.

    • 60. Trisha  |  February 8, 2013 at 10:50 pm

      I haven’t seen the bottom etc yet but I wondered the same thing. I don’t know how to tell if it’s done.

  • 61. Amy  |  August 19, 2012 at 7:56 am

    I made this last night and it was hard as rock on top and mush underneath. was left overnight, 8 hours.. maybe thats too long. had to throw it out

  • 62. sara  |  August 19, 2012 at 9:01 am

    I’m not sure what I did wrong but mine burned severely. So disappointed.

  • 63. Nellie  |  August 19, 2012 at 11:43 am

    I tried this recipe and it didnt work. :(

  • 64. Mrs K  |  August 19, 2012 at 12:11 pm

    I made this last night but with whole wheat bread. That was my first mistake, but I wanted to be healthy. Second mistake was not spraying PAM in the slow cooker before putting the bread in. Next time, it will be white or French bread and the bottom will be sprayed with non stick!
    Mahalo for the great idea!

  • 68. Dana Cox  |  August 22, 2012 at 10:04 pm

    Do you think it would cook on the warm setting if I cooked it for 8 hours? Warm it’s the lowest setting on my crock pot.

    • 69. Keeley  |  September 29, 2012 at 7:11 pm

      “Warm” is not a setting for cooking, it’s for maintaining the temperature of cooked food. You’ll want to cook this on low. I haven’t tried this recipe, so I don’t know if it works.

  • 70. susan  |  August 24, 2012 at 12:03 pm

    Can it cook longer than 6 hours? Like 8-9?

  • 71. Elsie Zimmerman-Miles  |  August 24, 2012 at 3:57 pm

    This crock pot french toast sounds great tasting and so easy! Can’t wait to try it.

    Is it ok to let it cook 8 hrs in the crockpot on low or will it dry out or burn?

    For French toast can you leave it linger than 6 hours?

  • 77. Betsy Brown  |  August 26, 2012 at 1:58 pm

    I just tried this last week and did not like it much at all. It needed something, maybe some raisins or more sugar or spices. Seemed just too mushy for me.

  • 78. Sabrina  |  August 26, 2012 at 8:00 pm

    I sleep longer than 6 hours. Would it be a problem to have it sitting on the warmer setting for a bit before eating? Will it not toast and brown that way?

  • 79. Dawn R  |  August 26, 2012 at 8:02 pm

    made this as a dessert for fantasy football draft potluck, tweeked it a little , used whole loaf of bread another 1 1/2 batch of the egg batter , drizzled with maple syrup and put 5 heaping tablespoons of vanilla frosting on top before we left. Once we go to the party the frosting was melted into it along with the syrup and it was a fantastic scoopable dessert.

  • 82. LaDonna  |  August 29, 2012 at 11:49 pm

    Question….. you said you halved the recipe, so is this recipe already halved?? I have a big slow cooker (and a big family) …do I double the recipe or is this the big one ???

    • 83. CookingEnglish  |  February 17, 2013 at 10:30 pm

      Yes the recipe is halved already. The full recipe calls for 12 eggs.

    Yum!! I currently make a French Toast Casserole, but would love to save even more time by doing it in the slow cooker. Is the recipe you posted the half recipe or the full? I have a large crock pot and a large family so I would like the full recipe :) Thanks so much!!!

  • 86. Becky Yates  |  September 1, 2012 at 11:59 am

    Tried the Crock pot French toast with Cinnamon Swirl bread. It was good, my daughter didn’t care for the consistency but everyone said the flavor was really good. I would like to try the Texas Toast bread which is what we use to always use for French toast.

  • 87. fran  |  September 1, 2012 at 5:12 pm

    Great recipe, thank you for it, can you tell me what size your crock pot is?

  • 88. melanie  |  September 2, 2012 at 3:54 am

    Hi, you said you halved it is this the half recipe or the whole.

  • 89. Adri  |  September 2, 2012 at 10:39 am

    Is that the whole recipe or a halved recipe? I have a big ol’ crockpot. Thanks :)

    • 90. Gabesboba  |  October 4, 2012 at 12:47 pm

      I have the same question. I think my crockpot is bigger than the one in the picture and am reluctant to make it without an answer. If I do make it I would probably double it, there appear to be more than 3 pieces of bread in the picture….hard to tell for sure though.

  • 91. Desiree  |  September 2, 2012 at 12:04 pm

    Sounds so good. Do you think I can replace eggs with egg whites and 1% milk?
    Love your reciepes.

    Thanks

  • 92. Anna  |  September 3, 2012 at 12:03 pm

    This did not work out for me. Don’t know if the size of the crockpot has something to do with it, but mine was overcooked on the sides and soggy on the bottom.

  • 98. April  |  September 9, 2012 at 10:52 am

    I was really excited about this recipe. I don’t know what went wrong, but when we woke this morning it was completely burned. I cooked it on the lowest setting, didn’t change anything, and……
    My only consolation is that I used a crock pot liner, so I didn’t have to scrub burnt bread.

  • 99. Amber  |  September 9, 2012 at 11:53 pm

    Do you need to grease or butter the crockpot?

  • 101. Ivy Clad  |  September 10, 2012 at 12:10 am

    I have your recipe in the crock pot right now. I just took a peek to see how it’s doing. It smells AMAZING! Thanks for sharing!

  • 102. Jeri  |  September 11, 2012 at 8:09 am

    I tried this last nite, and cooked for 8 hours over nite….they all stuck together

    • 103. Cathi  |  October 30, 2012 at 10:39 pm

      Part of the recipe instructions say that it has a bread pudding type of consistency… that means it all sticks together.

  • 111. Lyn  |  September 16, 2012 at 8:19 am

    5 hrs in lg oval crock pot was overcooked, next time maybe 3 hrs then uncover to brown. I’m using cinnamon brown sugar swirl bread, hope it tastes good!

  • 112. TAra  |  September 16, 2012 at 11:13 am

    Just a thought. I made this last night for my kids this morning. Started it around 11:30 pm and it cooked until 7 am. I tasted it and believe that it basically made yogurt out of the milk and sugar. Was very tangy. I suppose my crock pot did not get hot enough to kill the lactose bacteria in the milk. Maybe heat it on high for a while before overnight low. Or adding a bit of salt might work as well. Interesting though.

  • 113. Sharla  |  September 17, 2012 at 7:43 am

    Soooo…I tried this and I probably will NEVER do it again lol. I think my crock pot is too powerful or something because I had it on low for 4 hrs then it started to burn. I let it sit for a couple more hrs then I just put it on warm until I served it. It was crispy ha! Again…probably won’t do it again unless I know I can have some fluffy yummy French toast.

  • 114. Tim  |  September 17, 2012 at 5:29 pm

    I love this recipe, but one day i wanted to go for a New England style twist, I replace the light brown sugar with dark brown sugar which has a deep molasses flavor and I use corn bread. Try this out and I assure you, you will not be disapointed!

  • 115. Hope  |  September 17, 2012 at 5:48 pm

    Unfortunately this just didn’t work for me. It turned out burnt around the edges and mushy on the bottom : (.

  • 116. donna wester  |  September 21, 2012 at 9:34 am

    OMGosh I bet the house smells amazing early in the morning.

  • 117. Diane  |  September 21, 2012 at 6:53 pm

    Sounded like a good idea until I read that many of them are mushy. How does the one from you aunt taste? Are there some tips missing?

  • 118. Catalina  |  September 21, 2012 at 7:25 pm

    I did it today just as in the recipe. It worked! I didn’t change anything and nothing burnt, nothing mushy, just perfect!

  • 119. Samantha  |  September 21, 2012 at 10:55 pm

    So can l leave it cooking for more than 6 hours?

  • 120. Tmac  |  September 22, 2012 at 5:17 pm

    Not a lot of questions are getting answered here, which is unfortunate. Some things I can answer, tho. For those who made this and it burnt – you probably have a newer (last 5-10 years) pot. They run hotter than older ones so you have to take care with running times. I’d guess that this would be done in 2 hours in a newer pot. Yes, you have to butter/spray/grease the pot. I do every time I use the thing whether the recipe says to or not. Don’t know how leaving the top off “browns” the top, but it does. I made this in my 2 quart insert, buttered the inside, made half the recipe, added some nutmeg, and cooked it on WARM for 7.5 hours. I took the top off for 15 minutes and it was perfect. Soft and fluffy inside, a bit crusty outside and bottom. Washed up easily.

  • 121. Devin  |  September 23, 2012 at 9:42 am

    This sounds like a good idea but, trust me if you like French toast and you make this you will most likely be VERY disappointed. The bottom and the outer edges get very burned while, the middle is nothing but a soggy mess. What a waste of ingredients!!!

    I’ve been looking for a great french toast recipe that I could whip up quickly on school mornings. (We have to leave the house by 7:30 a.m., so there’s not much time to do anything fancy.) This one is nearly perfect! I’m just upset that I broke my large Slow Cooker; with four hungry mouths to feed, I may have to employ both of my smaller ones. Be sure to read the comments for some helpful tips, such as grease the crock first or use those slow cooker bags to prevent caked on goo!

  • 123. lora grant  |  September 25, 2012 at 10:28 am

    I made this last night and I set my crock pot to warm and this was delicious. It didn’t burn or was it mushy… a new family hit. Thank You for sharing recipe.

    • 124. Gabesboba  |  October 4, 2012 at 12:39 pm

      So I understand correctly, you set it on warm to cook it, or you cooked it and it was on warm until you were ready to eat it. If the former (set it on warm to cook it) how long was it cooking?

  • 125. Kat  |  September 26, 2012 at 11:33 am

    Unfortunately I tried this last night, hoping it would be an easy breakfast. It was burnt on the outside, and raw on the inside. And my house now smells like burnt french toast. I put it on low at 11:30 last night and woke up at 6:30 to check on it. So no easy breakfast, and a waste of all the ingredients. :(

  • 126. Nancy Jo  |  September 30, 2012 at 11:27 am

    This recipe did not work for me. I have a new oval crockpot and set it on low, not warm . It smelled amazing, but after six hours the bottom and sides were burnt and the center was soggy and gross – not bread pudding consistency at all. Used day old french bread and followed the recipe exactly. What the…?

  • 127. Noel  |  September 30, 2012 at 12:45 pm

    I’ve made this twice. The key is the bread to be a little stale or lightly toasted. And cooking it for 7 to 8 hours. At least 6 hrs in instruction. The. Bread it still wet and gummy. Was A HUGH hit with cinnamon raisin bread. For work function. WILL BE MAKING THIS AGAIN !

  • 128. Josephine  |  October 9, 2012 at 10:34 am

    I made this and it turned out perfectly. I doubled the recipe and cooked for 7.5 hours and it was not mushy or burned. It was just as it said it would be. I also made this as is cooked in a smaller crockpot and it was perfect after 6 hours.

  • 129. Ashley  |  October 11, 2012 at 4:44 pm

    You said you made 1/2 the recipe…so is teh recipe above 1/2 of the original? For a full recipe, would you simply double this?

    • 130. Ashley  |  October 11, 2012 at 4:51 pm

      Also, the 3 settings on my crockpot are warm, low, and high…would I cook on warm? or low?

  • 136. Dee  |  October 21, 2012 at 10:26 am

    I prepped last night. I used Texas toast and let it cook for 7hrs on low. It browned the ends did not burn. I also dipped each half in the egg mixture and placed in the crock pot and poured the remaining mixture on top . Spray your crock pot with cooking spray it slid out perfect and was easy to slice.
    My family loved the breakfast with warm maple syrup.
    Definitely will make again for our Holiday brunch.

    • 137. Ella  |  October 23, 2012 at 1:53 am

      Yeah!

  • 138. Alana  |  October 23, 2012 at 12:37 am

    This sounds amazing, but does it come out soggy?

    • 139. Ella  |  October 23, 2012 at 1:53 am

      Not in my experience. Custard like French toast

  • 140. Jennifer  |  October 23, 2012 at 3:40 pm

    I made this using a oval 6 or 6.5 qt crockpot that only has 4, 6 8 10 hour settings. 4/6 hours are high and 8/10 hours are low. I doubled the recipe 1/2 loaf of white and 1/2 loaf of cinnamon swirl on top I only dipped the top layers in the milk/egg mixture then poured the mixture over the top. After 3 hours (9-12) on the 10 hour setting it started to stick even though I did spray the sides of the crock so, I unplugged the crockpot and left the lid on I then started the crockpot again this time on high for 2 hours (5-7) unplugged and took the lid off. It was a little crunchy on the side and bottom but the rest was fine. This is something you will have to experiment with or you will have a burnt stuck mess if you leave it over night!

  • 141. Theresa  |  October 23, 2012 at 10:51 pm

    Made this 10/22/12. My cp is 15 yrs old and 5 qrt,I used 1loaf of JimmyJohns day old bread. Cut on diagonal1/2″ slices. Buttered bottom and side of cp . I used only 3 eggs 1cup milk and forgot the sugar. Dipped each piece of bread covered the bottom of cp 5 slices then stood other slices up along the side of cp and then finished staggering the remaining slices in center. Left over egg mix was poured over top. Cooked Low 6 hours. Perfection! As stated by another pinner the burning must be from the sugar…didn’t miss it since we used maple syrup on our plates Mine looked like I made them on stove top. This is a keeper for me. I put mine in the cp around 2am…insomnia has its perks! Lol

  • 142. Jill Marie  |  October 25, 2012 at 8:31 am

    I made this last night and I gotta say….it came out perfect. I followed the recipe other than adding a tsp more of cinnamon. I cooked it on low (not the warm setting my crock has) for 8 hrs (overslept) sprinkled a little cinnamon sugar on top before serving and the kids ate every last bite. I didn’t spray the crock and that’s my only regret. Lots of scrubbing tonight. I had a few burnt pieces but my son ate those right up. House smelled great too. Will make again!!!

  • 143. Jill Marie  |  October 25, 2012 at 8:33 am

    Oh, and this recipe fed my three kids and left them wanting more ( if that helps those questioning the amount of bread used)

  • 144. Kelli  |  October 26, 2012 at 10:38 am

    I tried this recipe last night using cinnamon swirl bread. In the morning it was a burnt glob stuck to my crock pot. What a bummer!

  • 145. Ruth  |  October 28, 2012 at 10:09 am

    Oh well, it’s as I expected my crock pot did not do the job of cooking my toast. It is soggy in the middle. Large family to feed. Everybody is spending a lazy day in bed so, I kicked it up a notch and took the lid off and will see what that does. In reading the posts it’s a toss up as to the brand, I believe, in crock pots. I will try it next time with out soaking my bread first. The brand name of my crock is called Crock-Pot. Most likely generic.

  • 146. Cindy  |  October 28, 2012 at 10:36 am

    we made this last night for a potluck this morning. what a mess. it was burnt and so much water in the the bottom of the crock pot. it was inedible. it had no taste what so ever. did you leave out the sugar or something? a big waste of cinnamon raisin bread and eggs. off to the donut shop for something for the potluck. disappointment…

  • 147. Ruth  |  October 28, 2012 at 2:38 pm

    Kicked it up a notch. It worked. Will try it again sometime.

    try adding an 8oz. package of cream cheese cut into chunks and mixing into the bread this a great way of making Christmas breakfast and still spending time with family. Thanks for sharing this.

    Made this the other night. It was absolutely disgusting when we woke up. I followed the exact recipe and the bread was completely burnt.

  • 153. ellen  |  November 14, 2012 at 10:22 am

    who knew one recipe would generate so many comments.. like any recipe, you get creative if it doesn’t look right, that’s the best part of cooking! BTW, can’t wait to try this on my 4 boys and husband, one loaf will almost be enough..be interested to see how it does with soymilk, as major dairy sensitivities alter anything I can make for my family, but 99% of the time, it’s totally awesome..

    • 154. Britt  |  January 24, 2013 at 5:26 am

      I was excited by this recipe but pretty disappointed. The top of the French toast came out well but the bottom was soggy. There was a mess and the taste was bland. Oh well. You live and learn. It must have been my crock pot.

  • 155. jt  |  November 18, 2012 at 8:40 am

    I make a baked french toast for Christmas morning every year and is quite easy but I like the idea of just putting in a crock pot before bed and waking up to ready made breakfast.

  • 160. Tracey  |  November 24, 2012 at 10:11 am

    I did not have good results as well, burnt on top and soggy all the way to the burnt bottom, I followed all directions carefully so I don’t really no what went wrong. I will stick to making French toast the original way, and for hectic mornings I will make French toast the day before and freeze!!! The next busy morning we can just pop a slice or so in the toaster!!! Yummy

  • 161. T Barth  |  December 1, 2012 at 11:33 pm

    I made this last night into this morning and it smelled wonderful cooking early this morning, I couldn’t sleep. I woke up before it was supposed to be ready to it stuck to the bottom, burned on the bottom and sides and soggy in the middle. I unplugged it, filled it with water and went back to bed for a few hours and cleaned up the mess. I will use the ingredients, but fry it the old fashioned way in a pan next time.

    I tried this last night for the first time. I was looking so forward to it this morning. I woke up last night to the smell of burning. I even put it on the low setting of 10hrs. It burnt to the sides of my crockpot. Plus it just wasn’t good. I’m going to try again because I used the French toast cut bread. When u make the mixture and pour it in is all the bread covered or like half way up with liquid?

  • 164. Sammi  |  December 10, 2012 at 10:57 am

    I had a problem with the French toast sticking together. Any suggestions?

  • 165. veecee  |  December 12, 2012 at 1:58 am

    Great recipe for the crock pot. No matter what size pot you use just layer the bread until it’s almost at the top of the pot. Use enough eggs and milk with some added cinnaman (can’t spell) added to the egg mix and pour over the bread. Leave to soak for at least an hour (could get away with half an hour. Then switch it on to auto and pop lid on and go to bed. Get up in time to remove lid and it’s all yours to enjoy, no hazzle and if you’ve greased the pot first, not even a lot of cleaning. Good stuff.

    • 166. veecee  |  December 12, 2012 at 2:02 am

      Forgot to say that we use buttered bread and sprinkle sultanas or currants in between the bread with some sugar. Any sugar you have at hand like demerrara or ordinary white. This makes it like old fashioned bread pudding and if you have family with different tastes they can add maple syrup on theirs or more cinnaman or whatever.

    I just made this with cranberry sauce and two teaspoons of rum essence…added ginger, cloves, cinnamon and nutmeg to the egg mix and used evaporated milk instead of normal milk. Guess I’m not so paleo yet. Ah well, I will serve it with whipped cream. And, the fact that it was dessert night tonight, and we didn’t end up making it because we were so tired (the 4 year old was most upset) won’t matter so much anymore.

  • 168. Grace Tyson  |  December 16, 2012 at 9:38 am

    I made this last night for a church event this morning. I doubled the recipe and used a large crockpot. It was very mushy when I woke up, so put it on high with the lid off for about 30 minutes or so. Turned out DELICIOUS and was a big hit. I may add a pinch of salt to the eggs next time.

  • 177. Debra  |  December 25, 2012 at 9:07 am

    We just finished eating this amazing French toast! Thank you for sharing! It was the perfect Christmas morning breakfast. I started the crockpot at 2am. By 8, it was perfect! I used thick slices of cinnamon bread from a local bakery. No burnt bread, no mushy eggs, it was perfect, delicious, and it is all gone…I will absolutely make his again!!!

  • 178. Jenny H  |  December 26, 2012 at 3:00 pm

    I tried this and woke up to a burnt mess 6 hrs later. I used an oval 7 yr old oyster black crockpot. It would have probably been done in 3 hrs. It was on low for 6 hrs. It looked yummy when I poured it all in…will try again, but a huge disappointment for Christmas morning.

  • 180. Amy Williams  |  January 1, 2013 at 8:52 pm

    I have made stuffed french toast many times and my family loves it…. so I am trying it now in my crock pot – I used day old french bread, cut into thick slices- I layered the bread in the crock pot (I sprayed the crock pot with PAM) and added 8 oz of cubed cream cheese, and 1 16 oz can of sliced peaches(drained most of the juice). Next I drizzled real maple syrup over the bread mixture. I then added my egg/milk/vanilla/ cinnamon and more syrup mixture to the bread layers. I made sure that all the bread was covered with egg mixture. Any type of fruit can be used- I have used strawberries, bananas , and raspberries. I sometimes serve with fresh whipped cream and it is very very good! I am looking forward to seeing the results f the crock pot version, in the morning- I do not use sugar in this recipe and no one misses it!

  • 183. Rachel  |  January 15, 2013 at 12:33 am

    Why not just take the 15 minutes it takes to make real French toast? Eggs, milk, melted butter, vanilla, cinnamon, sugar and nutmeg… Mix up batter, dunk in bread (I use pepperidge farm cinnamon switl) and cook on griddle?! 6+ hours for soggy bread pudding texture?! Seems silly.

  • 184. tiff  |  January 16, 2013 at 4:05 pm

    i got overly excited and started my french toast, THEN read all the reviews, so i got really nervous it would burn, get soggy, etc…

    i generously sprayed cooking spray, used honey wheat thin sliced bread, dark brown sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, eggs, almond milk, and a dash of salt. I dipped my bread individually, then sprinkled brown sugar cinnamon and a dash of salt in between each full layer. covered the top with a heavy layer of brown sugar and cut small chunks of butter to let melt down as it cooked. after all assembled, i stuck a fork in and broke up the bread pieces a bit more. i have an older hand-me-down round crock pot. and took the lid off 15 minutes before eating.

    wow, i believe this is better than french toast. it formed into a perfect loaf, not soggy, not burnt even a little bit, slid right out of the crock pot, sliced into perfect cake-like pieces and with or without the drizzle of maple syrup was absolutely delicious.
    THANK YOU for the recipe.
    i hope everyone who didn’t get proper results tries again because it is so so so worth it when its right.

    No need to worry about chemicals from crock pot bags.Your crock pot is already coated in a type of polyethylene plastic that when heated will off-gass enough to kill many types of birds. (ie, no teflon if you own a Macaw or Grey.).

    A nice, new, polypropylene bag will be much less toxic, and also can be used as fridge storage for leftovers.

    • 188. Jennifer  |  December 17, 2013 at 7:25 pm

      Actually, many of us have already sought out a crock pot that is specifically non-coated. Stoneware, clay cookers, etc. There are many resources for those of us with sensitivities to plastics.

  • 189. Susan  |  January 30, 2013 at 12:31 pm

    I use French bread. Thick slices. Dip in egg and milk mix as if you were going to put it on the stove. Top with pecans, cinnamon and sugar sprinkled on top. Bake on greased (Pam) cookie sheet in your oven for 20 minutes at 400. Turn half way through cooking time. If it’s not browned, leave it in a little while longer. This way, you can be doing the bacon eggs or whatever while your french toast bakes. Not soggy. Serve with melted butter and warm syrup. Delish!

  • 195. Becky Martin  |  March 15, 2013 at 2:24 pm

    Can I double this and have the same results?

    • 196. Ella  |  April 1, 2013 at 9:04 pm

      short answer–yes! gauge your crockpot and how much will fit

  • 197. Kristin  |  May 15, 2013 at 8:00 am

    It would probably burn in a bigger crockpot than in the four quart she used in the original recipe because its more spread out than stacked as in the four quart.

  • 198. Big Dan  |  May 29, 2013 at 7:57 am

    for those of you whose came out soggy did any one think to turn your oven on or may putting it on the stove and to try finish cooking it that way so it would not go to waste ????

  • 199. Allison  |  July 15, 2013 at 11:13 am

    I used French bread and it burned and was extremely gummy and tough. Had to drown it in syrup to make it somewhat edible. French toast is just better made the traditional way, overnight is too long.

  • 200. Rosalind Rosario Hartmann  |  August 18, 2013 at 11:03 am

    Yup, it tasted like soggy bread. You have to put a CRAP LOAD of spices in this for it to taste palatable at all. Very disappointed.

  • 201. Redfarmgirl  |  August 25, 2013 at 9:57 pm

    This doesn’t work. I had a sloppy mess when I woke up, very disappointed.

  • 202. jlbringman  |  August 31, 2013 at 5:04 pm

    This sounds like it has too many issues. Won’t be making this.

  • 203. Jennifer Richards  |  August 31, 2013 at 11:14 pm

    Staying at my daughters making this for Sunday morning. Thank you very excited to share with the family

  • 204. Mark  |  September 1, 2013 at 8:12 am

    I followed the directions exactly and at the six hour mark mine was burnt beyond repair.

  • 205. Felicia  |  September 18, 2013 at 8:06 am

    Just made this recipe this morning it really taste good. But you must defiantly need to spray, butter or use a crock pot bag.

    I should of read all the comments before trying this recipe. Not good at all. It lacked flavor & was completely burnt on one side. I would add more sugar, reduce the cooking time and add cream. Honestly, I would get a recipe elsewhere, before I try this again.

    Some of the more modern slow cookers get pretty hot. For those complaining about burnt bottoms or edges, try placing a few canning rings in the heating element lifting the crock about an inch. I do this when I make oatmeal in mine, because even the low setting will cook just a tad too hot. I’m going to try the french toast. I’ll sell it to my kids as “french toast pudding.” :)

    • 214. Ella  |  December 21, 2013 at 3:36 pm

      It for come out more like a bread pudding. And thanks for the great advice on controlling heat in a newer crock pot!

  • 215. Cindy Sherman  |  December 12, 2013 at 1:10 am

    I tried to print the recipe and cancelled after my computer printed 21 pages of comments! What a waste of paper and ink!

    • 216. Ella  |  December 12, 2013 at 2:01 am

      Sorry to hear. My site is being redesigned as we speak and is only this atrocious shade of pink because my custom design subscription ran out. More printer friendly versions to come

  • 217. Bubala80  |  December 15, 2013 at 10:40 am

    I tried it. Not impressed. I have a newer crockpot, cooked it way past 6 hours and some is still a watery mess. Used cooking spray and I still have to scrub the burnt mess. It’s also very bland.

  • 218. Kristy Moore  |  December 15, 2013 at 9:50 pm

    Wanting to try this for Christmas morning and just wondering if you can freeze the leftovers?

    • 219. Ella  |  December 16, 2013 at 3:19 pm

      I’ve never tried, I dont see why not, but I’d keep your expectations low, since I’m thinking eggs might not freeze well once cooked in french toast.

    • 220. Ella  |  December 21, 2013 at 3:34 pm

      You could try, but I haven’t done it myself. Test it before Christmas!! There are a wide variety of results if you’ve read the comments– I’ve even heard ” you’ve ruined my Christmas” by one such reader, so test it out and see if your results are the same before getting your hopes up for Christmas morning.

  • 221. Nikki  |  December 20, 2013 at 10:28 pm

    Easy solution for the spray…get a Misto put your own organic oil in and pump in air….voila…. chemical free spray:)

  • 222. cw  |  December 20, 2013 at 11:02 pm

    you can use canned cinn rolls and cut them up in pieces. Easier to serve with the small parts. Use at least two cans.

    I have to feed about 10 Christmas morning this as a side to eggs wondering if I can just double everything?? should be fine?

  • 225. Tara  |  December 24, 2013 at 2:15 pm

    I love doing this when I have a house full of kids staying the night!!!

  • 226. jayme  |  December 25, 2013 at 12:42 pm

    Mine turned out terrible as well, which is too bad since I had to smell it all night. Burned around the outside and soggy in the middle and I followed the directions to a tee. What a waste of ingredients.

  • 227. Kg  |  December 25, 2013 at 8:13 pm

    This was really bad. Used a whole loaf of cinnamon swirl bread and doubled the recipe as instructed. Soggy bread went into the trash.

  • 228. sarah  |  December 26, 2013 at 6:43 am

    By lowest setting, do you mean “warm” or “low.” May sound dumb, but I guess the lowest setting would be warm. Thanks!! Excited to make it!!

  • 229. renee  |  January 15, 2014 at 9:03 pm

    i’ve scrolled down to avoid reading any more posts about bags, sprays and cleaning….
    so sorry if its already been mentioned – but i find mostly my crock pot is easy to clean but for burnt or gooey messes i simply fill to above the mess with water, add a little detergent and set the thing to cook on high for 10 mins – then wipe clean once its cool enough to handle it.
