Print this recipe
For those who aren't morning people, waking up in the morning is hard enough, let alone having to worry about preparing breakfast for yourself or your family. Typically, a lot of people settle for just a cup of coffee or a processed breakfast bar. However, why settle for the mediocre when breakfast is supposed to be the most important meal of the day?
That's where this French toast recipe comes in. In this easy recipe, the slow cooker does the work for you! Getting its sweetness from the vanilla and cinnamon, the toast itself is great for those avoiding refined sugar, but also makes an excellent base for a healthy dose of syrup and powdered sugar for anyone who wants to indulge. 
Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 2 hours
Serves: 6-8
Bread of choice (about 3/4 of a loaf)
8 eggs
1/2 cup milk
4 tsp vanilla extract
2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
2 teaspoons orange zest instead of nutmeg
1. Fill greased 6-quart slow cooker with bread. 
2. Whisk together all other ingredients (wet mixture).
3. Pour over bread making sure all pieces are saturated. Note: Depending on the size of bread you use as well as your sweetness preference, you may want to use more or less of the wet mixture. 
4. Cover with dishtowel before covering with lid.
5. Cook on high 2 hours.
Serve with maple syrup and powdered sugar, or try it with apricot preserves on top.
