Transform your mornings and enjoy a warm, hearty breakfast without all the work. Prep the french toast the night before, leave in the fridge overnight, and bake in the morning. Recipe adapted from Wheat-free, Gluten-free Cookbook for Kids and Busy Adults.
Recipe type: Breakfast
Cuisine: Gluten-Free, Vegetarian, dairy-free optional
Serves: 6 slices
  • 3 eggs
  • 1½ tablespoons sugar
  • heaping ½ tsp cinnamon (or more to taste)
  • ½ cup milk
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla
  • 6 slices gluten-free bread (Note: I have made this with both frozen and room temperature bread with equal success)
Prepare French Toast
  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment or aluminum foil. Spray generously with a cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, sugar, cinnamon, vanilla and milk until well combined.
  3. Place a slice of bread into the mixture, flip bread with a fork and turn to cover bread fully with the egg mixture, and let soak for 3-5 minutes. Place on baking sheet.
  4. Repeat for the remaining five slices of bread.
  5. After all bread has been dipped, soaked and placed on the baking sheet, pour any remaining liquid evenly over the bread. The liquid will absorb overnight.
  6. Cover baking sheet with wax paper, plastic wrap or foil and refrigerate overnight.
The next morning
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Remove "french toast" from refrigerator, remove wax paper, foil or plastic wrap that was covering baking sheet*. and bake for 10 minutes. (*Tips before baking: If using parchment paper and the parchment seems "wet", sometimes I will gently transfer french toast using a spatula to a new piece of parchment paper before baking)
  3. After 10 minutes, carefully turn over slices. Bake an additional 10-15 minutes or until lightly browned.
