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.

    I have not seen that brand of bread available near us . Would Udi’s or Rudy’s work just as well ? How many slices to a pound loaf are there ?? Sounds like a great idea when my son and family come for the week of Christmas.
