Egg Free French Toast Casserole is the perfect alternative to those with egg allergies! It tastes like a traditional French toast casserole - nobody can tell the difference!
We have a long time tradition of french toast casserole for breakfast on Christmas morning. I usually prep it the night before and have it ready to go so when I turn the coffee pot on, I can pop this in the oven and by the time we are finished opening part of the gifts, we can take a break and have breakfast.
Our recipes have always included eggs until this year. I was terrified thinking about Christmas morning without our annual french toast casserole. I started frantically searching the internet over for egg free french toasts and found lots of different ideas that I took and compiled, crossed my fingers as I prepped it the night before, and said a prayer that Christmas morning breakfast would not end in disaster. I did buy sausage, bacon, and the fixings to make biscuits if it did end in failure. Lucky for me, prayers were answered and this turned out delicious and nobody even missed the eggs. So folks, french toast casserole IS possible without eggs!
