A quick and easy crowd pleaser. Honestly, I didn't use the slow cooker. I put everything in a buttered 9x13 and baked 1 hr at 350 degrees. I will be making this again!

We all enjoyed this. Made 1 1/3 recipes in a 7 quart slow cooker. Made 2/3 of a recipe in a 4 quart slow cooker with almond milk. It was a bit souper than the one made with 2% milk, but my son at all of it so it must have been pretty good!

So easy to assemble the night before. Loved the flavors. My only complaint was having to get up early to turn on the slow cooker so breakfast would be ready on time.

Comes together quickly and is really tasty. We really liked the taste of blueberries in the slow cooker. I do recommend greasing your slow cooker very well, as we did have a bit stick to the sides and bottom.

I used whole wheat bread in place of the French bread. This was a great change from our normal breakfast routine. Great flavor and easy to make. Definitely what I need for busy mornings.
