3 large eggs, lightly beaten
4 oz. cream cheese, room temperature
¼ c. light brown sugar

How to make Crock Pot Creamy Banana French Toast

Step 1: Using cooking spray or butter, grease a 6.5-quart or larger crockpot.

Step 2: On both sides of the bread slices, spread the cream cheese. On the bottom of the greased crockpot, arrange the slices in a single layer.

Step 3: Mash two bananas in a large mixing bowl. Then, add the beaten eggs, milk, sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Mix well until blended.

Step 4: Over the bread slices, pour the milk mixture. Gently press the bread down and allow them to stand for about 30 minutes up to 5 hours. You can add more liquid if the liquid does not come up to about three-quarters.

Step 5: Over the bread slices, arrange the slices of butter. Put the lid on and set to cook for 3 to 3 1/2 hours on low or 2 to 2 1/2 hours on high.

Step 6: Take the lid off and serve the creamy banana French toast right away garnished with some slices of fresh banana, chopped pecans, and maple syrup.

Notes:

You can serve this right away or set the dial to “Warm” to keep the French toast warm.
