Hi, guys!

Um. Is it Friday, yet?!

Oh my, yes it is! The week is wrapping up and we can finally start Fridaying! Although, I’ve been Fridaying since Wednesday because Indiana is out of commission. We’re freezing, schools are closed, snow is coming down hard and I thank GOD for Netflix, the internet, extra computer(s), and Facebook. And Pinterest.

I don’t know what’s more exciting – the fact that it’s Friday or the fact that you could have this amazing banana-loaded french toast for breakfast tomorrow morning!

Or or or! Let’s do French Toast for din din! Err. For brinner! It’s my favorite meal of the day.

Seriously, though… THIS should totally be your dinner.

I threw this in the crockpot at nearly midnight one night last week because I was feeling unprepared. With Christmas fast approaching (allow me to remind you for the umpteenth time, I celebrate on the 7th of January), I felt as though I wasn’t ready for the day OF or for the day before AND for the day after. I was all kinds of crazy. You know how it is…

Anywho…

What I’m sharing with you today is only the breakfast that I served on Christmas morning and the breakfast that I’m madly in love with. No joke, I think I have made this forty-plus times in the last year…  I basically inhale my portion the moment I remove that lid from the crock pot, singed taste buds and all.

This is good stuff. Really good. It’s creamy and sweet and all around delicious. You can make it with other things too, like um… blueberries? Or peaches!? Whatever you want. No big deal.

Must I really tell you more to convince you?

Fine.

    I was anxious about doubling this recipe but after reading others comments gave it a try and I’m happy to say it went very well and tasted great! I used two 20″ slender baguettes, and doubled all other ingredients liberall (I used 2% milk). It actually layered 3 times with the bread slices. Cooked on high for 2 and a half hours. Smelled amazing and everyone enjoyed it very much. It was not soggy but nicely firm.

  2. What would be the best way to go about doubling this recipe? Could it be done in a 9×13 pan in the oven, for example? And how many servings does the original recipe make? Thanks in advance! 🙂

    Na Zdravje!
    And OMG!! This French toast looks marvelous…actually, marvelous isn’t a good enough word and can’t think of one that appropriately indicates how much I want to “dive into” that French toast! I am so impressed with your site and your recipes. I am sure I will be back for more!

    1. Hi Kalyn! Since I have never tried making it with Texas toast, I honestly don’t know how it would turn out.
      You need stale bread, or a loaf of bread that is at least a day or two old, and it doesn’t have to be a baguette if you don’t have one. I hope that helps! Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

    Unfortunately this did not turn out at all for me. The bread was very soggy with egg chunks everywhere. The cooked bananas were grey and unappetizing. I even removed the bread and tried to fry in a pan at the end to help but it was still not great.

    1. Hi Phyllis! I am so sorry that it didn’t turn out for you. 🙁 Cooked bananas do turn brownish/gray, so that should be expected, but not sure why there was chunks of eggs. It should be creamy and not chunky at all.
      Again, very sorry you didn’t enjoy it.

  5. jen

    Amazing photos and recipe! I wa s wondering if I could make this the night before and pop then ceramic insert in the fridge overnight then put the cooker on early?

    1. Hi Jen!! I can’t say for certain, but I think it may end up too soggy if you add the egg mixture to it. I would go ahead and prepare the bread, but wait until morning to add the eggs and bananas. If you add the sliced bananas the night before, they will be dark as night by morning. 🙂

    2. I made them overnight because I mixed up the recipe with another. Turned out perfect. I served it as dessert at my brunch and it cooked while we ate other courses. This was a hit that I’m going to make again today.YUM!

    1. Hi Judy! I can’t say for certain that it would work because I haven’t tried that, but on the other hand, I don’t see why not. It’s a great idea!! Breakfast will be ready as soon as you’re up! 🙂

  6. jamie

    If I left my crock pot on warm, would it cook through the night? I would love to make this the night before and wake up to the deliciousness!

      1. angela

        Will this make the bread soggy at all? I want to make this for work and I don’t want the bread to be soggy if the bottom layer is completely covered in liquid.

          1. angela

            Yes it does, thank you. I have about 10 hungry boys at work and only a 4 qt crock pot. I’m thinking about putting a few layers in and seeing how it turns out. I hope it’s not too soggy, where they wont enjoy it. But they have yet to turn down my crock pot breakfasts. Ha! Hopefully three layers will be enough and hopefully the bottom two wont be too soggy.

      2. Heather Maehren

        Is the cook time the same as a single if you double the recipe? I will have 6 hungry adults, and 3 kiddos to feed, so doubling seems like the ticket!

  7. I’m with you sister!!! It’s cold here in WI and we had our first “cold” day/no school last week. . so yes! thank GOD for Netflix, the internet, and Facebook. And Pinterest!! 😛 love love love this banana french toast!!! and I can make this in my slow cooker?!!! love it even more!

  8. Does Indiana not usually get snow? As an European, are you questioning why things close down once there’s a lot of snow? 😉 When I tell my friends over here about that, they think it’s insane.

    And this French toast looks incredible! So, so yummy looking. 🙂

  9. I was just wondering to myself this morning if french toast could be made in the slow cooker, and behold, I see your post. How timely! This, I am totally in love with!

  10. French toast out of the slow cooker…whoa I am so super impressed; yes it does look absolutely amazing and now I will have to give it a try – with our necessary adaption – for next week Saturday when we have to get up super early. Love it!!!

  11. I am now fully convinced the art of slow cooking is magic. Or witchcraft. How else can you explain putting bread and bananas into the crockpot and coming out with this delicious French toast?! Witchcraft. Don’t try to convince me. My mind is made up.
