This Slow Cooker Eggnog French Toast is going to knock your socks off! Seriously, it is fantastic! Run, don’t walk, and grab all the ingredients as soon as possible! Or save it for something special like Christmas morning! It would be perfect to serve with my Cheesy Ham and Potato Breakfast Casserole! Talk about the dream team of holiday breakfasts.
My sister told me I just had to try this recipe. She couldn’t stop raving about it after her friend made it for her last Christmas. (Yes, I have been saving this recipe for a year.) Getting Eggnog over here in Germany isn’t easy. When the shipment that comes to the commissary is gone, it is gone…so I really did RUN to the store to try and buy some, and…I snagged the very last quart! I felt like I’d won a million bucks!
I’m not gonna lie. I had my doubts…french toast in the slow cooker? I was having a hard time thinking it wouldn’t come out weird and mushy. My sister promised me it wouldn’t, but I was still veeerrry skeptical. Jokes on me because it came out absolutely perfect. Once you drizzle that glaze on it – forget it! You’re a goner. You’re going to want to eat the whole thing!

Frequently Asked Questions about making Slow Cooker Eggnog French Toast Casserole
My family likes french toast, but not eggnog. What’s a good substitute for the eggnog?
Regular milk is a good substitute if you do not like Eggnog.
Can i use a slow cooker liner in place of the ALUMINUM foil?
I do not recommend using a slow cooker liner for this recipe. Using aluminum foil prevents the french toast from burning. Don’t skip this important step in the recipe. Also, make sure to thoroughly spray the aluminum foil with cooking spray before putting the ingredients in the slow cooker.
Do i have to use a baguette or a loaf of french bread?
No, you do not. You can use white bread, wheat bread, or even brioche. The texture of the french toast will be a little different, though. Using stale bread will give you the best texture. You can cut the bread up in advance and set it out overnight uncovered to help produce the stale texture.
How should the leftovers be stored?
Place in an airtight container or on a plate covered with aluminum foil or plastic wrap and store in the fridge for up to 5 days. Warm-up in the microwave or oven when ready to eat the leftovers.
