I’m a brunch kind of girl. I like to stare off for an hour while drinking my coffee before starting the day. Is that a good thing? Probably not. My husband and son are both big time morning people. They are little chatty Cathy’s.

I love being able to ease into the morning routine with a breakfast that cooks in the slow cooker. I’m not a morning person and it takes me a bit to get myself together. Throwing this together has been made easy with the The Good Morning Slow Cooker seasoning packets. The mixes make for a warm, hearty breakfast or brunch the whole family can enjoy together. Plus, they’re gluten free with no artificial colors or MSG.

I can whip up the french toast and while it’s cooking up, I can relax and get my hour of quiet time in. I like that a lot. I tend to cut up my bread and apple the night before because the bread is better a little dry and it makes the prep time so much shorter in the morning.

I also saw there are egg casserole seasoning packets. I can’t wait to give them a try. It looks like they have onion, garlic, red & green bell peppers and sun-dried tomatoes in one of the mixes. That would make a great casserole with some hash browns, bacon, and cheese thrown into it. What do you think?

This french toast recipe can feed a small army! I know a lot of people still have family around. If you still have guests in your house after the holidays, treat them to a tasty breakfast made in your slow cooker. From egg casseroles to French toast, the new McCormick Good Morning Recipe Mixes make it easier than ever to create weekend-worthy brunch staples! The best part is that you hardly have to put any effort into the recipes. WIN!

Can I prepare this slow cooker apple cinnamon french toast the night before?

Yes! I don't see why you couldn't prepare the apple cinnamon french toast the night before and throw it in the slow cooker the next morning.

Ingredients
  

  • 1 loaf of Italian bread 10 cups
  • 1 green apple peeled, cored, cubed (1 + ¼ cups)
  • 1 cup half and half
  • ½ cup apple juice
  • 8 eggs lightly beaten
  • 1 1.25 oz package McCormick Slow Cooker Breakfast Seasoning Mix for Apple Cinnamon French Toast
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • cup light brown sugar packed
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract

Instructions

  • Cube up the loaf of Italian bread into 1-inch chunks. It's not necessary, but to have the bread keep its shape better, let it dry out slightly. It can just air dry or place it into a 275 degree oven for 10-15 minutes until dry. Turn the cubes of bread every 5 minutes so nothing burns.
  • In a mixing bowl, add in the half and half, apple juice, lightly beaten eggs and whisk until combined.
  • Add in the Seasoning Mix, cinnamon, brown sugar, and vanilla extract. Whisk until combined. 
  • Add the bread and apple chunks and toss until thoroughly coated with the wet mixture. 
  • Spray the inside of the 6-quart slow cooker with non-stick cooking spray. 
  • Pour the french toast mixture into the prepared slow cooker. Place a paper towel on the top of the slow cooker insert. It should have a slight overhang on either side of the slow cooker. Place lid on top of the paper towel.
  • Cook for 4 hours on low or until the french toast no longer looks wet. 
  • Serve warm with maple syrup or caramel sauce.

    1. I would really like to know if it can be refrigerated overnight as well. I would like to make Christmas morning and just plop it into the slow cooker. While I don't eat breakfast, my family is ready to go after ripping open their gifts!!

  1. I didn’t even know McCormick made those seasoning packets! I’m on the hunt for them now! Looks yummy. Pinned!
