PUMPKIN FRENCH TOAST
So we still havent unpacked everything so I was looking for something that was easy to make but that wasnt just pasta or Annies mac n’cheese- thats all we have been eating lately. Now I am not one who loves breakfast. It has to be the right situation for me to enjoy it. Usually it just comes down to time which I dont have in the morning and that means I have to eat something quick and I hate ceral. I like it dry and sugary but thats not good for you. I love bagels but I dont want to eat a bagel every morning either. I usually just end up making some kashi shake and take it in the car and have a luna bar when I get to school. Blah!
I do however love wonderfully made huge breakfasts on the weekend when time isn’t an option or even better BREAKFAST FOR DINNER!! (or Brinner:Breakfast+Dinner). Since we are coming up on Thanksgiving I thought I would try this Pumpkin French Toast recipe I had found a little while ago. Lets just say it was the tastey breakfast ever!! The flavor was delicious with the pumpkin and all the spices!! Mmmm with real maple syrup and some fresh berries- most perfect dinner!!
1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup pumpkin puree
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ginger
1/8 teaspoon cloves
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
2 tablespoons brown sugar
8 slices of bread
A little Olive Oil
1. Mix the eggs, milk, pumpkin puree, vanilla, cinnamon, ginger, cloves, mutmeg and brown sugar in low flat bowl for easy dipping.
2. Dip the bread into the egg mixture on both sides and grill in a frying pan (preheated with some oil) until lightly golden brown, about 2-3 minute per side.
3. Serve with maple syrup (REAL!!) and fresh berries.
Todays Style File Post will be up around 3:00pm
I’m a big fan of breakfast for dinner, and I feel that I don’t do it often enough. Maybe this week we’ll have to have waffles for dinner…yum.
Oh my god, that looks sooo good! I’m definitely going to have to try this out! I too am a lover of brinner 🙂
That’s some of the best looking french toast I’ve ever seen! and pumpkin? ah, I think I might have to make this!
its so easy and so good! Go make it now everyone!!
I’m totally making this! I LOVE french toast. In fact, I’m making some for dinner sometime this week. Trader Joes sells this amazing almond & berry toast. I can’t wait to try it as french toast.
Thank you for this idea, so unique. Excited to make it on the weekend while I’m report card writing, it will be a lovely treat. I love that you mentioned real maple syrup too! Being your continental neighbour up here in Canada where we respect our maples and all their goodness, it is good to know that Aunt Jemimah hasn’t won over everyone down south. :0)
Your blog is wonderful! MÃ©rci.
I’m totally making this recipe on Thanksgiving morning! Can’t wait, I’m drooling over your photos!
Yum! Looks excellent, Jen! Great idea.
I made this recipe for Sunday brunch this past weekend, and it was a major hit! I tried using Challah bread, which was a very delicious (and Hanukkah-appropriate) choice.
