If anyone in the family suffers from celiac disease, or any kind of wheat allergy, this French Toast Casserole is gluten-free, too. Small hands can pinch cubes of bread, while Mom or Dad mixes the other ingredients. Put in the fridge overnight, and in the morning, easy, delicious breakfast. (Courtesy of French Meadow Bakery)
