Baked Buttermilk French Toast Casserole

Gluten-Free Baked Buttermilk Maple French Toast

Breakfast foods are always so good, but I hardly ever have time to make pancakes or waffles in the morning. I’m lucky if I get my greens shake and yogurt made. I had half a loaf of the Pamela’s Bread left and it was starting to become less moist. In the bread’s defense it was about 5 days old. Knowing that I’d never finish the bread, I thought I’d make something with it.

This easy to make and super delicious baked french toast casserole will make any morning feel like a vacation. Well, it did for me at least. It was a nice mid-week change from yogurt. It took about 15 minutes to get the bake french toast prepped and in the fridge the night before. And 5 minutes of prep in the morning. Not bad, right? The delicious smell that fills the air while it’s baking, will keep you checking the oven. I must have checked on it at least 10 times…waiting patiently for the buzzer to go off. It’s sweet, but not overly sweet. The brown sugar and walnuts makes a simple crunchy topping.

This Baked Buttermilk French Toast Casserole is a perfect for any special occasion, Sunday brunch or just to give your mid-week breakfast a change-up.
