Make this french toast gluten free

You can easily make this gluten-free by choosing an appropriate bread or croissant. I’ve tested this recipe with the vegan croissants from Whole Foods and with Udi’s gluten-free bread, both with success. Use your favorite, but avoid options that are more savory than sweet.

Make this french toast casserole egg free

Just Egg vegan egg substitute worked wonderfully in this, and there was no difference in flavor or texture when compared to my tests with traditional eggs. This does work with real eggs, so feel free to use those if you’d prefer.

Dairy Free Yogurt Options

I use the unsweetened Greek-style yogurt from Kite Hill in this and it works great. I’d stick to an unsweetened, Greek-style option to avoid your casserole from becoming overly sugary and runny. I’ve also tested this successfully with traditional dairy Greek-style yogurt, so feel free to use that if you’d like.

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup bread cubes I used Whole Foods vegan croissant
