This Gluten-Free French Toast Casserole with Blueberries takes little prep time and makes a delicious breakfast that’s made with real food ingredients.
On the weekends, I love to make a homemade breakfast since I’m not rushing out the door to take the kids to school. It’s my time to slow down and make something nutritious (and delicious) for my family.
That’s why I love this Gluten-Free French Toast Casserole. It’s easier and tastier (in my opinion) than regular French toast – plus, I don’t have to labor over the stove to make it. WIN!
Prepping Ahead Of Time
Sometimes I even prepare it the night before and then stick it in the oven in the morning. It’s great when I have guests staying over or need to make a breakfast dish to bring to school for the kids, and want to save time.
A big thanks to my friend Mandy for introducing me to her French Toast Casserole years ago. I had no idea that was even a thing. But once I tried it, I was in love. And now I’ve created a recipe that’s both gluten-free and made with real food ingredients, so you can feel good about feeding it to your family.
Variations – Gluten-Free French Toast
- Use any berries you like, strawberries, raspberries etc
- Try adding lemon or orange zest for an extra fruity zing
