Sometimes you are in the kitchen, and it just hits you like a ton of bricks. I wonder if I made _____ if it would work. Then you give it a whirl. It may or may not work, but every once in a while you find something that knocks your socks off! This Crockpot Strawberry French Toast Casserole is one of those dishes!
I picked up a loaf of day-old french bread at Walmart for $0.50! They work the best for this dish! I diced it up and put half of the bread in my crockpot. I used at 6 quart Crockpot for this recipe. I then topped it with 1 1/2 to 2 cups of diced strawberries. Next, I topped it with the rest of the bread and the egg-milk mix. I may have whisked in 1/4 cup strawberry preserves to get the strawberry flavor.
Cover and let that sit overnight in the fridge. If you can't wait (and I don't blame you), allow it to sit in the refrigerator for at least an hour or two. When ready cook on high for 2 hours.
It's so PERFECT!!! The strawberries run right through the middle, and the flavor is heavenly! Sprinkle it with powdered sugar or top it with a little whipped cream or a drizzle of honey! OMG! I think this Crockpot Strawberry French Toast Casserole could be my new favorite way to enjoy strawberries!
