Slow Cooker Sweet Caramel French Toast Casserole

Servings 6

Ingredients

  • 12-14 oz loaf french bread
  • 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk (caramel flavor if you can find it)
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup Kraft Caramel Bits (or see notes)
  • 2 tablespoons heavy cream
  • 8 oz crème fraîche (optional)

Instructions

  • Cut bread into 2-3 inch cubes
  • Spray slow cooker with non-stick spray
  • Press bread down into bottom of slow cooker and compress as much as you can
  • Pour condensed milk evenly over bread
  • Whisk together eggs, milk and salt and pour evenly over bread
  • Cover and cook on high for 2 to 2 ½ hours
  • Melt caramels and cream in microwave using 30 second intervals and stirring between until smooth
  • Slice and serve french toast casserole topped with crème fraîche and melted caramel or as desired

Notes

Instead of using packaged caramels, you can make my easy homemade version.
I used my mini-casserole slow cooker for this recipe and it was the perfect size.  You can also use a regular slow cooker and press the bread into the bottom, just note that cooking time may decrease slightly due to the additional air flow in the slow cooker.
