Slow Cooker Stuffed French Toast Casserole

Slow Cooker Stuffed French Toast Casserole

Life is so cyclical. It seems like I am busiest when I have teenagers. To be honest I have had teenagers in my house since 2003. Nonstop. Feeding teenagers, especially in the summertime, is a special challenge. Between the busy schedules, the heat, and the grazing nature of teens I love pulling out my slow cooker in the summer. One of our new favorite slow cooker dishes is something I made for brunch last week, Slow Cooker Stuffed French Toast Casserole.

Although I don’t spend as much time on the road as I used to, everyone got so accustomed to Sunday that I still make it. There are definitely some dishes that make it into a semi-regular rotation, while others are one and done.

Slow cooker Stuffed French Toast Casserole is definitely one that makes the rotation. It is delicious and easy. Every single person in the family enjoyed it.

Another thing that is great about this recipe is that, just like French Toast, it can be topped in whatever fashion pleases the person eating it. D3 likes syrup on her French Toast and pancakes, so she put syrup on hers. The Hubs, D4 and I had fresh blueberries and blueberry preserves on ours. A person could put any jam or jelly, powdered sugar, nut butter, whipped cream…the list is virtually endless.

This recipe for Slow Cooker Stuffed French Toast Casserole also makes enough to feed a large group. It fed the four of us large first helpings and a couple of second helpings on Sunday. The girls have been able to eat it for breakfasts a couple of times throughout the week, and there is still some left on Thursday.

If you are looking for a brunch recipe to feed a crowd for holiday brunch or a get – together such as a Bridal Shower Brunch this would be perfect. Throw it in the slow cooker and let it cook, and serve it straight out of the slow cooker. Oh, and a toppings bar would be awesome. I hope you give this morsel a try, and love it as much as we did.
