Slow Cooker Skinny French Toast

With Christmas just around the corner, I had to share with you this wonderful, Slow Cooker Skinny French Toast recipe.

It has become a family tradition of ours to make a nice breakfast on Christmas morning before we open gifts or do anything else. Each year I make something different but last year I made this Slow Cooker Skinny French Toast and it was such a hit that I will be making it again this year! One thing I love so much about this recipe is that you can put it all in the slow cooker and just let the slow cooker do all of the work. No need to get up super early and slave away in the kitchen and then have to worry about cleaning up the giant mess you made. Just toss this Slow Cooker Skinny French Toast in, set the slow cooker to cook, and enjoy the rest of the time with  your family.

When making this recipe, I like to use these Pansaver Slow Cooker Liners (affiliate link)  for easy clean up. First, spray the liner with some nonstick cooking spray. A little of the bread will still stick but that’s okay.

Now grab up some of these large, $1 French Bread loaves at your local grocer store. You could even shop the bread sale rack and get them for under $1! (Can we say budget friendly recipe?! Great for feeding a crowd!)

After I unpackage the bread (I’m only using one loaf here) I like to cut it in half before pinching it up into pieces.

Once the loaf is cut, get to pinching! I pinch up one loaf at a time since this is a layered, casserole style dish. Just tear the bread into large pieces. slow cooker skinny french toast

Once you get one of the halves of the loaf of bread pinched up and in the slow cooker, it’s time to get the brown sugar, cinnamon, vanilla mixture mixed up.

I added all of the ingredients for this mixture and then stirred with a fork to keep it from getting lumpy.

Now that you have the sugary mix ready to go, sprinkle half of it over the bread in the slow cooker.

After adding half of the sugar mix, mix together the liquid egg whites and milk in a separate bowl.

Now pour half of the egg/milk mixture over the bread and sugar mix in the slow cooker.

Now you will repeat this process again with the remaining ingredients. Take the other half of the french bread, tear into large chunks and add to what is already in the slow cooker. Top that bread with the remaining sugar mixture, then add the remaining milk and egg mixture. With all of that complete, you are finished with the prep work for this Slow Cooker Skinny French Toast! Time to put the lid on the slow cooker, sit back, and let that little gem do all of the work for you! Once this Slow Cooker Skinny French Toast is finished cooking and your house is filled with the wonderful smalls of Christmas, you will be ready to dig in!
