Sheet Pan Meal Prep Breakfast
Does breakfast food count as a food group? No, but we totally wish it did! Truly, we love it that much. Almost any way you prepare it, you can’t go wrong with breakfast classics, especially ones like this French toast sticks and sausage sheet pan meal prep breakfast recipe. All this breakfast love aside though, what’s to be said about the obscene amounts of unhealthy fats? Cholesterol? Sodium and sugars? The truth is if you’re trying to follow a healthy meal plan, traditional breakfast comfort food won’t serve you well. In the case of French Toast Sticks and Sausage, this is especially true for people with gluten sensitivities.

And so we say to our fellow breakfast-loving readers, today’s meal prep idea goes out especially to you! A sheet pan meal prep breakfast that features delicious gluten-free French toast and hearty sausage to get your morning started in a deliciously nutritious way! Plus, we love this recipe not only because it’s so yummy, but because it follows the tradition of French toast being relatively easy to make!

Can French Toast Stick & Sausage Breakfast be frozen?

How do you make French Toast Stick & Sausage Sheet Pan Meal Prep Breakfast?
As we mentioned earlier, one of the truly great aspects of this meal prep idea is how easily it comes together! Begin its preparation by preheating your oven to 400° F. While you wait for the oven to fully head up, slice your bread into about 20 individual pieces. To prevent the bread from sticking, coat the sheet pan in coconut oil or parchment paper. Next, create the batter by combining eggs, milk, cinnamon, and vanilla, then thoroughly whisk all ingredients together. Take your breadsticks and coat them in the batter, then place on the sheet pan. Add sausage links to tray and bake for 15 minutes. And now you’re already finished! Serve optionally with maple syrup and/or fruit of your choice.
How to portion French Toast Stick & Sausage Sheet Pan Meal Prep Breakfast?
We used a two-compartment meal prep container to portion this meal prep idea, as it has both the French toast sticks and fruit. However, you could even use a three-compartment container if you so desired, as one of the sides is sausage links.
