Frenchy Pumpkin Toast Recipe

I think pumpkin week just might be my favorite week. My kids like it better than spinach week, or bean week, or even carrot week.  Imagine that.

Frenchy Pumpkin Toast. Here's a way to pumpkin french toast in 5 minutes

Adding pumpkin to our French Toast was not a stretch for my kids. They already LOVE French Toast.  So here is how we made this recipe:


5 slices whole wheat bread
3 eggs
1/3 cup pumpkin puree
1 TBL milk
1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice (see yesterday’s post for recipe on this)
1 tsp vanilla

Mix all ingredients together except the bread.  Soak both sides of bread in egg mixture.  Heat skillet.  Cook bread on hot skillet until both sides no longer show wet eggs.   Top with a cinnamon syrup or real maple syrup.

Thank you!! I still have canned pumpkin that we canned from last year. Making pumpkin cinnamon rolls today for a Scout meeting…. this recipe will be used for breakfast as soon as those are gone. (Which shouldn’t take too long!)

Hope-That is awesome that you canned pumpkin last year! I may have to try that.
Thanks for commenting Jamie. Not only was it yummy, it wasn’t any harder than regular French Toast!

Mmm… We are so trying these this week!

Colleen says:

That’s so funny, because I was already planning on making your orange french toast (and putting it on sticks with sausage and fruit) for supper tonight!! I’m SO going to change to pumpkin now though!! Do you think it’ll still work in the oven? What about using parchment paper in the oven instead of the melted butter?

We tried these this morning, and they were a HIT! My 6-year-old, in particular, couldn’t get enough! In fact, he said, “I want these for breakfast tomorrow.” Thanx for a great recipe! We will definitely be adding these to our future holiday breakfast traditions!
