Sweet Potato French Toast Casserole

French Toast Fever
French toast is currently one of my favorite things to make so tonight I tried yet another variation. This one is different from the traditional french toast since the bread is cut into cubes, layered with a sweet egg mixture, and then baked until toasty and tasty (similar to a bread pudding). If you want to make this yummy dish for a crowd, simply multiply the ingredients and use a bigger baking dish (4 people = approximately an 8x8 dish). It would be the perfect recipe to serve for a brunch.

Sweet Potato French Toast Casserole
Serves 1

1.5 tsp. Promise spread
3 oz. roasted sweet potatoes, cubed
2 slices light gluten free bread, cubed
1/3 cup unsweetened Silk Almond Milk
1/4 cup liquid egg substitute
1/8 tsp. cinnamon
1 Truvia packet
1 tbsp. sugar-free pancake syrup + more for dipping

1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2. In a small dish, microwave Promise spread for about 20 seconds, or until melted.

3. Spray a small baking dish or loaf pan (approximately 5x2) with nonstick spray.

4. Place bread cubes evenly along the bottom of the dish. Sprinkle sweet potatoes over the bread.

5. In a small bowl, combine melted butter, milk, egg substitute, syrup, cinnamon, and Truvia. Stir until smooth and well-mixed.

6. Pour mixture over bread and sweet potatoes. Make sure the bread is thoroughly coated in liquid, stir gently if necessary.

7. Bake in the oven for about 30 minutes, until the egg mixture is set and cooked through.

8. Let cool slightly before eating.
