Pumpkin Pie French Toast
Recipe type: Breakfast
  • ½ cup Pumpkin Puree (not pumpkin pie filling!)
  • heaping ½ teaspoon Pumpkin Pie Spice (or dashes of cinnamon, nutmeg & cloves to your liking)
  • ½ cup Milk (I used Grace's whole milk which made the batter rich and creamy but you could use any type of milk)
  • ½ teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 1 teaspoon White Sugar
  • 2 large Eggs
  • 6 slices of Hearty Wheat Bread (to hold up under the thick batter)
  • Butter and maple syrup for serving
  1. In a rectangular dish or wide-mouthed bowl large enough to accommodate the bread slices, mix together the pumpkin puree, pumpkin pie spice, milk, vanilla and sugar.
  2. Add the two eggs and mix thoroughly until smooth and fully incorporated.
  3. Heat your griddle over medium heat and coat lightly with butter. When the butter starts to sizzle, it's time to add your dipped bread.
  4. Be sure to dip both sides of each slice of bread evenly into the pumpkin mixture. The mixture is thick, but it'll be great as long as you give it enough time to cook.
  5. Cook the french toast for about 3 minutes on each side or until the outsides are golden brown and the centers don't feel mushy.
  6. Top with butter and pure maple syrup and enjoy!
