Crockpot Eggnog French Toast Casserole
Crockpot Eggnog French Toast is the perfect breakfast for Christmas morning or New Years Day brunch. Infused with warm vanilla and cinnamon and topped with a warm maple creme syrup, this dish a perfect way to use up eggnog.
I’ve always made an overnight French toast, where you soak the bread in the custard mixture overnight and then bake it in the morning, but you can easily put your crockpot to work and make an Eggnog French Toast to celebrate the season and give your French Toast a delicious nutmeg eggnog flavor.
You could also add some cubed cream cheese to the crockpot for extra creaminess when adding the bread and custard mixture.
Cook it on low for 4 hours so that the custard soaks into every corner of the French bread and results in a delicious brunch option!
Take advantage of the great deals on butter, eggnog, cinnamon, and pecans at Safeway to make this for breakfast or brunch this weekend, or save it for Christmas morning.
- French Bread loaf, or your favorite thick brioche-style bread
- maple syrup
- vanilla extract
- toasted pecans
Hot to Make French Toast in a Crockpot
With only 10 minutes of active prep time, making French Toast in a slow cooker is the easiest thing you can make!
Prepare the crockpot by placing a sheet of aluminum foil at the bottom and spraying with non-stick cooking spray. This will help make clean-up easier because the French toast will stick to the foil, rather than your slow cooker.
Cube the French bread and place into the slow cooker.
Mix the custard by combining the eggs, eggnog, salt, maple syrup, cinnamon and vanilla extract. Mix well until combined and frothy. Pour the custard over the bread cubes and push the bread cubes down to coat entirely.
Cover and cook on low for 4 hours. Your house will smell amazing.
While the French toast is cooking, toast the pecans in a 350° oven or over a skillet for about 8-10 minutes until crisp and toasted.
When the French Toast is finished, top with the toasted pecans.
Heat 1 cup of maple syrup in a microwave-safe mug or measuring cup for one minute. Stir in 1/4 cup of eggnog to make the maple creme syrup.
Scoop out the French toast and top with the warm maple creme syrup.
What to Serve with French Toast
I like to serve up a side of bacon or sausage, an egg bake that can be assembled the night before, and fresh fruit. Here are some recipe suggestions.
