Gluten Free Dairy Free French Toast Bake
Recipe type: Brunch
Cuisine: Gluten and Dairy Free
This batch of decadence was my hubby's request for Christmas morning breakfast.  It was a recipe somebody shared on Facebook (and I'm sorry, I have no idea WHOSE the original recipe was!) that he asked me to convert to something we could both eat.  Not a small order with the whole gluten AND dairy free restrictions.  But I took it on and the results were, frankly, nothing short of spectacular.  The whole family LOVED this.   I don't actually like normal French toast, but I really enjoyed this.  We had it with some fresh sausage from the butcher shop and bacon (because that's how we roll).  This recipe is for a half batch (9x9 pan).  If you're feeding a crowd, double everything and use a 9x13.
