Pumpkin spice. Pumpkin lattes. Pumpkin bread. Toasted pumpkin seeds. Pumpkin pancakes. Pumpkin pie. Pumpkin French toast. Pumpkin. All the pumpkin. Give it to me. Now.
If I could live in a pumpkin I would. Where everything was pumpkin flavored, every coffee had pumpkin and nutmeg, and there was a crisp fall breeze every afternoon. I would wear chunky sweaters, knee high boots, and Taylor Swift would be envious of my Fall game. Living in a pumpkin would be great.
And when I invited friends over for a meal, I would make this: pumpkin French toast. French toast is really an easy dish and you can flavor it any which way. Try this same recipe, just with apple butter. Nom accordingly.
- A nice thick bread, slightly stale
- Pumpkin Spice
- Pumpkin Butter
Just like your traditional French toast, mix the spice, butter, eggs, milk, and vanilla. Wait to add the bread until your skillet (spray with canola oil) is piping hot. Then, toss the bread in the mix and lay in the pan. Cook evenly on both sides. Add more butter and plenty of syrup.
This dish is perfect for a brinner (breakfast for dinner) or Fall brunch. When would you enjoy your French toast?
