Ingredients

  • 1 (10-inch) stale (a day or two old bread) French baguette, cut into 1-inch slices
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
  • 2 bananas, plus more for serving
  • 3 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 to 1½ cups milk
  • ¼ cup light brown sugar
  • ½ tablespoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • pinch of nutmeg
  • 2 tablespoons butter cut into thin slices
  • ½ cup pecans, optional, for serving
  • maple syrup, optional, for serving

Instructions 

  • Grease a 6.5-quart (or larger) crock pot with cooking spray or butter.
  • Spread cream cheese on both sides of all bread slices and arrange slices in a single layer on the bottom of the crock pot.
  • In a large mixing bowl, mash two bananas; add beaten eggs, milk, sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, and nutmeg; whisk until everything is well combined.
  • Pour milk mixture over bread slices and press the bread down into the liquid; let stand 30 minutes, or up to 5 hours. 
  • The liquid should not cover the bread slices, but it should come up about three-quarters of the way up. If it’s less than that, add more liquid.
  • Arrange butter slices over bread slices.
  • Cover and cook on LOW for 3 to 3.5 hours or on HIGH for 2 to 2.5 hours.
  • Remove lid; garnish with fresh banana slices, chopped pecans, and maple syrup.
  • Set the dial to “WARM” so it stays warm, or serve immediately.
