Slow it down Saturday: How to make Crockpot French toast

Try this slow cooker recipe for a different take on French toast.

KUSA — It’s time to slow it down, and enjoy some Saturday morning goodness.

We’re starting to introduce these slow cooker recipes during the 9NEWS weekend morning show. This one’s not-so-secret. I found the recipe on Pinterest.

Here’s what you need:

  • 1 loaf of bread (I chose brioche!)
  • 6 eggs
  • 2 cups milk
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp brown sugar cinnamon
  • ¼ cup butter
  • ½ cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • ½ cupped pecans (options)
  • Dash of nutmeg


  • Whisk eggs, milk, cinnamon…pour over diced bread in a large bowl. Cover and let soak in the fridge for at least four hours (overnight is better).
  • When ready to bake, spray the inside of a slow cooker (4-6 quart is best).
  • Ad in bread mix.
  • In a separate bowl, mix together butter, brown sugar cinnamon, pecans and nutmeg. Crumble and spread on top of bread.
  • Cover and cook on low for 4 hours (2 hours on high if you’re in a rush)

Let sit for 15-20 minutes and serve. Enjoy!

**You can also use gluten-free bread and/or dairy-free milk & margarine.
