I have been listening to Michele Buble Christmas.

I absolutely love his voice. My husband and I saw him in concert several years ago, and we had a blast. He was so entertaining and told stories about his life and family. He was very relatable and seems like a real good guy. Fame has not gone to his head and it seems like his feet are firmly on the ground, which makes him all the more likable.

But when you hear him sing he seems bigger than life. That voice!

Music really gets me in the mood for the holidays.

When I was younger my Mom would put on records in the living room, because the big fancy record player was in the living room, and we would wrap presents and eat Christmas cookies.

I still like to listen to Christmas music when wrapping presents, and I like eating Christmas cookies… pretty much all the time, but defintiely while listening to music.

This French Toast casserole is the perfect way to wake up Christmas morning or New Years Day. You can prep the day before and throw together and bake in the morning, and no one will know that this is gluten-free, or will they care, because all they will be doing is asking for seconds.

Typically french toast casseroles are assembled into a baking pan in layers and set overnight. The problem that I find is that the center of the casserole always ends up soft and sloppy. I believe this happens because the bread along the edges does not soak up as much of the egg-milk mixture as the bread in the center. Which leaves you with a crust edged soggy center french toast casserole.

Ain’t nobody wants that!

I decided to let the bread soak in a single layer on a baking sheet overnight and then assemble into the baking pan right before I needed to bake and serve.

This ensures that every piece of bread gets an even soak in the egg-milk mix and then you get an evenly cooked french toast casserole. Meaning even the center gets gobbled up and you are left with nothing but an empty pan and a few scraps.

I highly recommend letting this sit in the fridge for as long as you can. I always let it go over night. Letting it sit for an extended time guarantees that your bread has enough time to soak up as much egg-milk mixture as possible. For any mixture, that is not absorbed, pour this over top of the bread after you place it into the baking sheet to ensure all that yummy goodness gets baked into the casserole.

Know that the Coconut Sugar and butter mix likes to try and separate. Just continue whisking and do you best to spread evenly on the bottom of the pan and again on the top of the bread mix. I used an offset spatula to spread the mix on top if you do not own an offset spatula just use the back of a spoon or a butter knife to help spread it evenly.

    Steps 5 says to pour half the mix into the pan and press it into the bottom then 6 says to pour the rest over the top. These steps don’t really make sense. 🤔

    Make ahead breakfasts are the best for Christmas morning! And I always need Christmas music and cookies while wrapping presents too – that’s actually my whole plan for tomorrow while the kids are at school! 🙂
