Treat yourself to this amazing Crock Pot Blueberry French Toast I adapted from Gooseberry Patch’s Busy-Day Slow Cooking! This is the perfect dish to serve to company or as a weekend reward for yourself for making it through the week!

When Cris showed me this recipe, I knew she was a good sister! She knows that I love all things blueberries AND that I love french toast, so being the good sister that she is, she told me I might want to make it. Big sister takes care of little sister!
Crock Pot Blueberry French Toast Notes:
- While I made this in good ol’ Sir Hamilton (my 6-quart Hamilton Beach Programmable Insulated Slow Cooker), my first choice would have been Cassie (my 9×13 Casserole Crock Pot) if she hadn’t been previously engaged in a yummy recipe at the time. I could have waited to make this Crock Pot Blueberry French Toast, but I didn’t wanna. 😉
- Momma taught me the secret to her french toast (aka the best french toast ever made) a long time ago. Vanilla. Vanilla. Vanilla. While it may seem like there is a lot in this recipe, trust me. It. Is. Good.
- If your kids are anything like mine, they will be gobbling this up. So if you have kiddos running around your house, be sure to make a full batch or double batch…according to how many kids you have! Iyla was the first to try this in our house. After one bite, she was very impatient for the following ones. She did not appreciate if Mommy snuck a bite in if that meant she had to wait at all. She LOVED it! And this mommy loved that she was devouring her blueberries!
