Yummy French Toast Casserole - Egg-Free, Dairy-Free

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Mommy Needs Coffee

For the food-allergic people in your life, egg-free, dairy-free French toast casserole! Crispy on the outside, chewy on the inside, it's nice as a brunch item. This is our version of a recipe from a Food Allergy and Anaphylaxis newsletter ( http://www.foodallergy.org/ ). The original recipe called for unflavored rice milk, 1/4 tsp vanilla extract, and milk-free, soy-free margarine, so it can be converted to a soy-free dish as well, though we haven't tried it. I think the critical thing is using bread with a nice, crisp texture; it wouldn't be as good with bread that was soft and squishy!

This casserole was good. I think I used too crispy of French bread (it was marked down because it had to be sold by the day I bought it, so it was a little harder than normal). Still, it turned out fine, and my boys devoured it. I love French Toast Casserole, and because my son is allergic to eggs, I have not had the pleasure of making it in almost 5 years! This totally satisfied my craving! Thanks for sharing such a wonderful treasure!
