If you really wanted to get a bit more fancy, you are more than welcome to make a baked pumpkin french toast casserole by alternating this same recipe. Simply just preheat the oven to 350. Lay out your bread slices into your casserole however way you like. Then, in a large bowl, whip up the same ingredients from below, and add an additional, 1 cup milk, and 1 cup sugar. Once all of the ingredients are fully incorporated, slowly pour the mixture over you arranged bread slices and allow it to soak up the milk mixture for at least 1 hour, or overnight in the refrigerator. Bake for about 30 minutes and serve with a side of maple syrup. Enjoy~ 🙂
Pumpkin French Toast
- 3 large eggs
- 3/4 cup Silk Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk
- 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
- 2 tablespoons light brown sugar, packed
- 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- butter, for griddle or pan and for serving
- 8 slices Texas toast or thick-sliced French toast bread
- maple syrup for serving, or your favorite topping
- Preheat electric griddle (takes about 10 minutes) or preheat a non-stick skillet over medium heat a minute or two before you’ll need it; set aside.
- In a large mixing bowl, combine eggs, milk, pumpkin, sugars, vanilla, pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon, nutmeg, and whisk until combined.
- Butter the griddle or skillet.
- Dip 1 slice of bread into the coating mixture for about 10 seconds, flipping over once, and making sure it’s well-coated before adding to griddle. Repeat with all slices of bread until coating mixture is gone.
- Cook for about 3 to 4 minutes per side, or until as done and browned as desired. Add more butter to griddle or skillet as necessary and wipe griddle with paper towel as necessary to remove black bits. Serve immediately with butter and maple syrup or your favorite topping. French toast is best warm and fresh, but will keep airtight in the refrigerator for up to 5 days or in the freezer for up to 6 months and can be gently reheated in the micro or toaster.
