Gluten Free Italian Crouton Casserole

With baked goods and traditional dishes, the holidays can be tough when you are on a gluten free diet. Thanks to my partnership with Little Northern Bakehouse, I’m finding more ways to “Eat for Me” by making my favorite Italian Crouton Casserole recipe gluten free!

This time of year, I love to make non-traditional foods that still have a vibrant festive flair. Gluten Free Italian Crouton Casserole is chock full of red and green and a whole lot of delicious good-for-you ingredients and flavor.

It’s an easy to make, one dish recipe that serves as both side and vegetable accompaniment to any Italian-inspired dinner. Gluten Free Italian Crouton Casserole also make a great lunch dish, too. Or you can pair it with your favorite soup for a hearty meal.

The breads are non-GMO, plant-based, certified Gyphosate Residue Free and they are absolutely delicious!  Sourced from gluten-free and whole-food ingredients, you’ll find great texture chock full of grains and goodness.
