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!
