Put old bread in a slow cooker before bed & wake up to a yummy breakfast

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.

Cabbage rolls are delicious! Tender leaves of cabbage stuffed with rice and beef and cooked in tomatoes.

With the simple, yet absolutely scrumptious, combination of tender ground beef, soft corn tortillas, herbs and freshly grated cheddar cheese, it really is a wonder how you managed without this recipe for so long.
