WW Recipe of the Day: Slow Cooker Eggnog French Toast Casserole
(235 calories | 9 9 9 myWW *SmartPoints value per serving)
This slow cooked eggnog french toast casserole may be the best french toast I’ve ever eaten.
I’m not exaggerating.
Instead of regular bread, I used what was left of my first ever (but not my last) panettone.
Have you had panettone?
It’s a fruit-studded sweet bread that pops up in grocery and specialty stores this time of year. I can’t believe it took me 50 years to experience it!
The Skinny on Eggnog French Toast Casserole
If you don’t have panettone, I think cinnamon raisin bread would also work well in this slow cooker eggnog french toast.
One of the keys to good french toast is to use dry bread so that it will better absorb the egg mixture. I sliced the panettone and let it sit out on the counter for several hours before assembling the casserole.
If you are looking for something special to serve for breakfast or brunch on New Year’s Day, I really think you should consider this easy and delicious slow cooker eggnog french toast casserole. It makes 4 servings, but easily could be doubled.
