Gluten Free French Toast Casserole Recipe
I love French toast but I don’t always love making it. Standing over the stove, watching to make sure the bread doesn’t burn, flipping it one piece at a time, and repeating for each serving. It’s fine if it’s just for you and another person, but if you want to feed a larger family or maybe even entertain for brunch, this Gluten Free French Toast Casserole recipe gives you the same flavors and texture of French toast, without the hands-on time.
Simply mix it up, then let it sit for 30 minutes while you preheat the oven, make a pot of coffee, prepare other dishes, shower, or even lay in bed a little longer! Then, while it bakes, you can get some other things done in your morning routine and before you know it, you have an extra-special breakfast that can serve a small crowd.
Recipe notes: You can use any kind of milk for this and dairy free butter, in case you or anyone you’re feeding is dairy free. The gluten free bread I used (Kinnikinnick) is also dairy free.
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, maple syrup, vanilla, cinnamon, and salt. Cut the bread into 1-inch cubes. Add the bread to the egg/milk mixture. Stir gently to combine. Let sit for 30 minutes, stirring gently occasionally.
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
Pour the bread mixture into a large cast iron skillet or 9x12-inch baking dish and gently press down with a spatula. Top with the melted butter and bake for 55 minutes or until golden brown and set. Let cool for 5 minutes before serving. Serve with extra maple syrup.
