This Slow Cooker French Toast is what Mom dreams are made of. Simply throw the ingredients in the crockpot and set it. No more standing over the stove frying each individual piece!

From egg casseroles to French toast, new McCormick Good Morning Recipe Mixes make it easier than ever to create weekend-worthy brunch staples.
Mornings are hectic in our home. With three kids and a husband to get out of the house by 7 am, there is not much time to make a gourmet breakfast. That is until I discovered this Slow Cooker French Toast, and slow cooker breakfast meals in general. Up until now, I only pulled out the crock pot for dinners. Now, we have delicious meals, with little effort, morning and night!
Slow cookers are a great way to put easy and convenient meals together for the family. This new breakfast cooking revelation came to me after finding Good Morning Slow Cooker breakfast seasoning mixes. They add fresh and rich flavor to any egg casserole or French toast. They even have a delicious Peaches & Cream Oatmeal packet that I used in this french toast recipe. With fresh raspberries and a simple Creme Anglaise, our Sunday Morning Brunch was fork licking delicious.
Let the Slow Cooker do The Work: Ease into the morning routine with a breakfast that cooks in the slow cooker. Featuring simple recipes on the package – for everything from egg casseroles to French toast – these seasoning mixes make for warm, hearty breakfast or brunch the whole family can enjoy together. And, they’re gluten free with no artificial colors or MSG.
