|Spiced Pumpkin Pie French Toast ~ Super simple to make and super tasty. The bread really soaks up the orange color from the pumpkin. I'm loving the flavors of fall!|
I've been thinking of ideas for using canned ~ Pumpkin Pie Filling ~ in ways other than the traditional pumpkin pie recipe that comes on the back of the can. Today, I came up with this simple pumpkin infused version of the classic French Toast. I'm calling it my ~ Spiced Pumpkin Pie French Toast. I tweaked my Cinnamon Vanilla French Toast recipe a bit, and it delivered. My son went nuts for this meal and begged for a second plateful. Good thing the recipe makes 8 slices, otherwise Momma would have had to make another batch! :)
Spiced Pumpkin Pie French Toast
6-8 slices, depending on the size of your bread
* you can use pure pumpkin puree, just add some pumpkin pie spice, a little sugar and a splash more milk
- 3 large eggs
- 1/2 cup canned pumpkin pie filling*
- 3 Tbsp milk
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 6-8 slices of your favorite bread
- cooking spray/Pam
- favorite syrup
- butter or margarine
Preheat large skillet over medium-low heat.
In a blender, place eggs, pumpkin pie filling, cinnamon & milk ~ blend until combined. It'll take just a few seconds. Pour mixture into container large enough for a slice of bread to lie in it flat.
Place one slice of bread in container, flip over ~ make sure both sides of bread are covered in egg/pumpkin mixture ~ only dip as many pieces of bread as will fit in the skillet at one time.
Spray preheated skillet with Pam & put as many egg-dipped slices of bread as will fit.
Cook for approx. 2 minutes per side or until both sides are golden brown.
Dip & cook remaining slices of bread. Keep all slices warm until finished cooking. When ready to serve, top with butter & syrup. Enjoy!
