Yields12 Servings
Prep Time8 hrsCook Time1 hrTotal Time9 hrs
 1 medium sized loaf of french bread
 8 eggs
 1 ¾ cups milk
 2 tsp cinnamon
 ½ cup brown sugar
 1 tbsp vanilla extract
 ½ tsp nutmeg
 ¼ cup maple syrup
 ¼ cup butter (melted)
 ½ cup walnuts (chopped)
1

Cut the bread into slices 3/4" - 1" thick.

2

In a large bowl, whip the eggs, and add the milk, cinnamon, 1/4 c. brown sugar, vanilla and nutmeg. Mix well.

3

Soak the slices of bread in the egg mixture overnight in a covered container in the refrigerator. All of the mixture should be absorbed into the bread by morning.

4

In the morning, spray the slow cooker pot with cooking spray (or use a liner to make your clean-up much easier!)

5

Stand the soaked bread slices on end in the pot. Keep them in a single layer: all pieces should be touching the bottom and most of them should also be touching a side of the pot.

6

Mix 1/4 c. brown sugar, syrup, butter and walnuts in a small bowl.

7

Pour the walnut mixture over the toast and cook on low for another hour or until you are happy with the toast mixture.
