Crockpot Egg Nog French Toast Bake

Here's the Dish

This egg nog French toast bake is so easy to make and full of the rich flavors of the season! It has all of the wonderful flavors of a sweet cinnamon French toast bake, but the rum extract and nutmeg bring out the egg nog flavors in this dish. This crockpot recipe can be made in advance-making it the perfect recipe for Christmas breakfast!


The estimated total time to make this recipe is 3-8 hours.


Spray crockpot with nonstick cooking spray. Place cubed bread in a large bowl and set aside. 


In a separate bowl, mix everything else together, (except for the optional toppings) until it is smooth and well combined (you may also do this in a blender). Pour egg mixture over bread and mix until bread is well coated with egg mixture. Pour bread mixture into crockpot. 


Cook on high 3-4 hours or on low 6-8 hours. (Note: If it is still too moist at this point simply, allow it to sit uncovered for up to 30 minutes before serving.) Serve with maple syrup, whipped topping, and pecans if desired!



12 Slices whole grain/high fiber bread, cut into cubes 1
1 cupPlain low fat Greek yogurt
2 Large eggs
6 eggWhites (or 3 additional whole eggs)
1 cupAlmond milk (or low fat milk or low fat egg nog)
1 cupSweetener that measures like sugar
1 tbs Rum extract 2
1/2 tspCinnamon
1/2 tspNutmeg
Optional: Pecans and Whipped Topping for Garnishing

1 I used Brownberry double protein bread which has 110 calories per slice and 7 g fiber, 18 g carbs, and 3 g fiber per slice. *Use Gluten Free bread if you are intolerant to gluten!

2 Rum extract and nutmeg are what really gives this recipe the egg nog flavor, so you can leave them out if you want it to be a simple cinnamon french toast bake!

Yum! I can only imagine how good my house would smell while this cooks up! I love a healthy breakfast that I can get ready the night before…especially if it tastes like egg nog! Perfect!

I’m not a fan off eggnog. If I just made it a basic french toast bake should I leave the cinnamon the same or what would you suggest bumping up the measurement to?

I made this recipe for Christmas morning and it turned out great! I did not have rum extract so had to use real rum (needed much more).

I am going to half this with some bread crusts I have frozen (picky kids!) is there anyway to cook this in the oven? I have a huge crockpot and I’m afraid it won’t be enough and might cook weird. Ideas?

I made this and I totally ruined my new crock pot. It burnt really bad. I only cooked it on low for 7 hours. I was so excited to try it too. It made my house smell so good while it was cooking. :’(

We loved it! Made it with egg nog and gluten free bread in a six quart crock pot. I think the gf bread burns easy ours was a little burnt on one side after three hours fifteen minutes on high. I think the gluten free bread needs a little more liquid too. I put in a cup and a quarter of the egg nog and it wasn’t too moist. For our taste next time I think we would use a little more cinnamon. Want to make it Xmas eve to have a wonderful breakfast Xmas morning! Thanks!

I’ve made this dish twice, once “egg nog” style and once with just the cinnamon. The rum extract and nutmeg really make a huge (and delicious) difference!

Also, I used 1/2 regular bread, 1/2 P28 bread for some extra protein, and it came out great!

Also forgot to add, I’ve also tried adding raisins (1/4 cup), and I love it!

Do you think this recipe could be halved and still made in the crock pot? Also, if I made the entire recipe do you think half could be frozen?
