PUMPKIN PIE FRENCH TOAST

French toast is known by numerous names: eggy bread, pain perdu, German toast, gypsy toast, poor knights, torrija, etc.
Regardless of what you call it, French toast is essentially bread soaked in egg-milk mixture and cooked until golden brown.  It is usually served with maple syrup and a side of fruit.

HOW TO MAKE PUMPKIN PIE FRENCH TOAST

It’s really simple…you just add some pumpkin puree and spices to the egg-milk mixture.

Then make French toast as you would.

See….

The eggs, milk, pumpkin and spices.

Whisked.

It will be thick. (don’t worry, they will cook just fine.)

Cook in skillet or on griddle.

Greased. Well greased. Grease in between batches too.

The flipped side with some drizzles of maple syrup.

They freeze beautifully and the kids got to enjoy them for lunch a few days later!

See….easy, peasy…

Tip :  Make sure you use butter on the skillet when cooking the pumpkin french toast, and in between batches too) The pumpkin mixture is very sticky,  and the butter adds flavor and keeps the french toast from sticking.
