Best Bread for French Toast Casserole

This recipe is made with a Loaf of French Bread. It is best when you cut it up at least an hour before it goes in the crockpot so it can get nice and crusty before you add the eggs and milk.

After I made this, I thought of all different ways you can adjust this for different flavors. So don’t be surprised if you see some more popping up over the next few months.

  • 1 loaf of French bread cut up and cubed Bread is best if it is day old, or left on the counter for 1 day.
  • 6 large eggs
  • 2 cups of milk (I use whole but you can use 2%
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup butter softened
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar packed
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla


  • Take one loaf of French bread, cut it into cubes and place the bread cubes into a large bowl at least one hour in advance so it can get hard.
  • In another bowl, place your eggs, milk, vanilla and cinnamon and beat together until well blended.
  • Pour your egg and milk mixture over your bread cubes and toss until all the bread is coated.
  • Spray your Slow Cooker with cooking spray or use a crock pot liner.
  • Add your coated bread mixture into slow cooker and press mixture down into Crock Pot.
  • Take your butter and brown sugar and cream together with a fork until crumbles form.
  • Take your crumbles and sprinkle over bread mixture.
  • Cover and place in your refrigerator for 4 hours.
  • You can cook on high for 2 hours or low for 4 hours.


Prepare your French Toast the night before and place in the refrigerator to sit. 
Bring Crock Pot liner to Room Temp for 30 minutes before placing into the Base. 
You can then cook on high for 2 hours in the morning and have a nice brunch.  
If you have a warming feature on your Crock Pot, you can cook at night for 4 hours on low then revert to warm until breakfast. 
Options: Serve with Powdered Sugar or Fresh Berries.

  1. Love the idea of making breakfast the night before! I need to look into a slow cooker with a timer because I also enjoy sleeping more than 2-4 hours, lol.

    1. Yes, a timer is great of if you want to get up and turn it on and go back to bed or lounge around in the morning and it will stay on warm till you want it. I had mine all warm for a few hours after it was done and still delicious.

  2. Oh boy! I love this recipe but hate waiting for it to cook in the morning! I never knew you could put it in the crock pot.

  3. Just popping over from How To Get Organized At Home and wanted to say thanks for sharing, I have never thought to do this in a slow cooker before, thanks for the inspiration.

  4. I am totally sold on anything I can cook in my slow cooker!! I have yet to have anything bad come out of that bad boy 🙂 My hubby is a sucker for great french toast so I will have to let him be the judge of this one!! Can’t wait to try!!
