crock-pot goodness

If you know me, you know I've got mad love for my crock-pot. I try and use it a couple times a week so that we can have leftovers + I don't have to scramble to figure out something for dinner. One of our Christmas traditions is to have crock-pot French toast on Christmas morning. I posted a preview of it on my Christmas post.
 
It cooks over night on low and you wake up with breakfast done and the house smells amazing! Win, win! The smell of French toast always reminds me of Christmas morning and I can't wait to share the goodness with our kids in the years to come!
 
Dying to know the recipe? Well, you came to the right place, because I still have the Holiday spirit alive inside of me, so I am willing to spill the beans.

 
-First and foremost spray your crock-pot
 
Also, I should add that my crock-pot is fairly large, so I can have more inside of mine. If yours is smaller, then try half of the recipe.
 
-Put a whole loaf of bread in the crockpot. We use Hawaiian bread and it's amazing. I tear apart the bread, so that all of the bread will get nice and French toasty.  (I wouldn't use wheat bread, but honey wheat is good or cinnamon raisin swirl is great too)
 
-Combine & Mix together well: 6 eggs, 1 tsp of cinnamon, 1 tbsp. of brown sugar, and 1 tsp of vanilla extract.
 
-Next dunk each piece of bread into the mixture and place in the crock-pot. Then pour the remaining mixture of the bread.
 
-Next put the lid on and cook on low for 6-8 hours. I cook mine on 6 hours.
 
-If you are up in time before it goes off, remove the lid for about 10-15 minutes so that the bread will toast and brown.
 
This recipe serves about 6!
 
I am drooling after writing this post. It's so easy and delicious!
