Make your pumpkin spice dreams come true with this dreamy overnight breakfast casserole

Print this recipe
If you love a sweet, filling breakfast, this slow cooker French toast casserole is your dream come true. Pumpkin puree stirred into the custard makes it a great dish for Fall. It is flavored with pumpkin pie spice, which makes it as delicious as any dessert. But the good news is that you can totally eat this for breakfast.
Use stale bread for this dish for the best results. Challah or brioche makes an especially decadent version, but plain white bread or French bread works well, too. If you happen to have cinnamon bread, that will make it even more amazing (you can leave out the pumpkin pie spice in this case.)
