Gluten-Free French Toast Apple Strata is a layered breakfast casserole dish made with gluten-free bread, eggs and layers of sweet apples flavoured with cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger. I have also included candied pecans in this strata recipe, giving this casserole a sweet and nutty crunchy topping.

This stunning dish tastes like a buttery French toast with layers of delicious cinnamon apples baked in a light custard and topped with candied pecans. Doesn’t this sound amazing? And, this gluten-free breakfast casserole can be made a day in advance. Special occasions like Mother’s Day or Father’s Day are perfect for serving this tasty French dish.

This simple to make Gluten-Free French Toast Apple Strata makes a delicious breakfast, brunch, or a late afternoon snack. What I love about this recipe the most, the preparation takes only minutes. Once the casserole is ready, you can keep it in the refrigerator until you are ready to bake it. 




Now, all you have to do is pop it in the oven, and brunch is ready. I made this recipe for four, but if you are feeding a crowd, double the recipe and use a 10-inch cast-iron skillet. And, allow about 5 – 8 more minutes of cooking time. The apple strata should have a golden brown colour.

Yes Donna, you can freeze it. When ready, thaw the apple strata in the fridge overnight, then cover it with foil and reheat in the oven.


Once baked could this be frozen? Thanks.
