Pumpkin Pie French Toast

Try this scrumptious seasonal treat for a little something special.

Or, go ahead and break all the rules and have this breakfast for dinner!

Ingredients

  • 14 slices whole wheat sandwich bread
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 3/4 cup canned pumpkin
  • 1 tsp homemade pumpkin pie spice
  • Butter and syrup for serving
  • Fresh fruit or smoothie as side

Directions

  1. Set out the bread for dipping.
  2. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, pumpkin and pie spice until smooth.
  3. Dip each side of the bread in the mixture and cook on a hot, greased griddle or skillet. Flip after 1 – 2 minutes.
  4. Once all are cooked, serve with butter and maple. And a side of fresh fruit.
  5. If freezing, let cool completely to reduce freezer burn.

I also love to use sweet potatoes for something like this. After trying Sweet Potato Pancakes on a summer getaway a couple of years ago, I can hardly settle for plain-old-buttermilk. To make sweet potato pancakes, I add either leftover sweet potatoes mashed with a fork to my pancake batter (no other adjustments needed), or in a pinch you can add some instant sweet potato flakes. Sweet potato pancakes are a little circle of heaven to me - and they're great with just a smidge of butter, if you don't want to pour on the syrup. Kinda wish I was having them for breakfast RIGHT NOW!

I love this recipe. I love your site. I'd love to see recipes with minimum ingredients, that don't take much time. There are days I'm in a rush, my refrigerator isn't stocked, I have places I need to be in minimal time... Those would be wonderful!
