With Mother’s day quickly approaching this weekend I thought that it was a perfect time to share this recipe with you.  This French Toast Casserole is a favorite at my house on Christmas, Easter, Mother’s Day, anytime I can justify making it! I have even made it for ~shhh~ dessert!

It is super easy, delicious, and oh how I wish I could say low in calories!   This wonderful make ahead dish is thrown together the night before and just popped in the oven.  So, if you have a husband like mine, you could make it the night before, stick a post it on it with directions, and cross your fingers. 😉

I put this french toast casserole together this morning, in just a few minutes.  I have to take my Grandma to the airport in Jacksonville tomorrow and thought it would make a delicious breakfast!  So, that being said.  I don’t have the “finished product” pictures yet.  However, I have made this enough times to tell you that it comes out perfect and delicious.  I will take pictures in the morning and post them as soon as I have them.

I hope your family loves this as much as mine does.  For those of you with Gluten or Dairy issues, I have converted this recipe many times.  It turns out just as delicious with almond milk or gluten free bread (even both).  Happy Early Mother’s day to all of you Mom’s out there!

  1. If only I could figure out how to do this without egg. I LOVE french toast, but my daughter is allergic to dairy and eggs. I’ve figured out a good stove-top recipe (finally!) that tastes the same. So maybe I can see how it tastes bakes. 🙂

  2. I made this casserole to carry to a friends house for their breakfast . Their mothers funeral was todat and they had lots of company. It was a hit! I also halfed the recipe for my husband and me. We had a wonderful breakfast on this cold morning in South Georgia ! I love your blog- I will be making the peach muffins this weekend !! Have a blessed day Jane Gibbs
