I am a mom of 4, add on to that a mom of special needs kids so…. mornings in my house can be hectic and down right crazy but there is one thing we need every morning, a good breakfast.
I love giving my kids a good healthy hot breakfast and this recipe fit the bill along with being easy to make. French toast casserole in the crockpot! Who would have thought. I whipped this up way after my kids were asleep so no mommy I need this or that while i’m trying to create breakfast. I did wake up several times during the night to the yummy aromas of cinnamon and nutmeg. That may have been the hardest part. Then in the morning voila, breakfast was ready as soon as we woke up.

Try it for yourself!

  1. I give you 5 stars for the job you do every day! You recipe is lovely, but the fact that you put both feet on the floor every morning and deal with whatever the day will bring, makes you a HERO in my book. Been there…done that! Thank God for people like you!!!

  2. This looks delicious! I will be delighted to try this recipe… A bit curious though. I have a can of pumpkin pie filling (not pure pumpkin) so I was wondering if I could substitute it for the milk, sugar and pumpkin?

    • I have never used the Pumpkin Pie Mix so I had to look it up to make sure what was in it. Since the mix has the sugar and spices you should be able to use it in place of the pumpkin, sugar and spices. There may be some subtle flavor differences. For instance this recipe uses brown sugar instead of white sugar which is typically used in pumpkin pie. Plus i’m not sure how “spiced” pumpkin pie filling is. I would adjust to your personal taste if needed. Milk would still be needed though.

  3. This is a FANTASTIC recipe. Waking up to this smell was pure heaven. I entertained some guests for brunch with this on a Sunday, and it was the best french toast any of us have ever had. The texture was perfect; not soggy at all but still moist. The flavor was very good; usually pumpkin recipes have a “hint” of pumpkin, but the pumpkin and spices really came through very well. Absolutely delicious!

  4. Found your recipe online tonight and it’s about ready to be put in the crock pot for breakfast tomorrow (9-18-16). I cannot wait!!!!
