You can ever prepare Instant Pot Orange Cranberry French Toast the night before and then put it in the Instant Pot, Mealthy MultiPot or Pressure Cooker when you wake up in the morning. Let your pressure cooker do the hard work, while you are enjoying your morning coffee and the kids are enjoying family, friends, presents.
If you have nut allergies or don't enjoy nuts, sprinkle some Grapenuts Nuggets over the top for a nice crunch! They make a great substitute in many recipes calling for nuts like my Creamy Grapes Salad and Slow Cooker Autumn’s Best Apple Crisp Dessert.
