Well I am excited I am going to be a Great Auntie again.. This will be my 13th great neice or nephew.... and I am going to have 2 more this summer.. How blessed am I.. Todays recipe is because I love Creme Brule and I thought this would be great to have Easter Morning..  watch the kids do their easter egg hunt and breakfast will be ready by the time they are done..Oh by the way big kids like easter egg hunts as well...

Creme Brulee
French Toast

2 loaves (8 to 9 inch) Challah bread, cut into 1 inch cubes (about 9 cups). Now Walmart sells a sweet braided bread that you can use. Another option is to use Raisan Bread that is unliced so that you can get the 1" cubes. Have not used a French Bread loaf as it is not sweet so might have to try that if you do let me know how it  worked out.
4 cups milk or half and half; 1% milk works well
1/2 cup of sugar
3 eggs
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon of salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
Caramel sauce, the kind you use for on ice cream
Vanilla ice cream, if you are serving as dessert
Line slow cooker with store bought plastic liner. Very important for an easy cleanup..Place bread cubes in slow cooker.
Whisk together milk, sugar, eggs, vanilla and salt.
Pour mixture over bread cubes.
Cover and refrigerate at least 4 hours and up to 24 hours.
All of the liquid will absorb into the bread cubes.
Cover and cook in slow cooker on low setting for 7 to 8 hours or until inserted knife comes out clean. Turn off slow cooker and let french toast stand for 30 minutes.
Remove plastic liner from slow cooker and carefully place on a cutting surface. Slice or spoon the french toast onto plates to serve. Drizzle with warm caramel sauce or a splash of traditional maple syrup.
This recipe serves 8  people.

If you are going to serve this for Easter Sunday how about you put it together after supper on Saturday let it sit in the fridge and then put it on when you got bed on Saturday night,.
