A few reasons why this recipe ROCKS. First off you can make it in a Big Batch. Second, it’s simple to prepare. Thirdly, this breakfast is gluten free. If you use GF ingredients that is.

By the way you need to enter my giveaway for Canyon Bakehouse Gluten Free Bread + Muffins.

For this french toast I used their 7-Grain and Mountain White varieties.

Bake this french toast for 15-20 minutes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit, all depends on how runny you like your eggs.

Don’t forget to serve with some sticky, sweet maple syrup.
