Pumpkin pie french toast

Now that autumn is in full swing many people are enjoying the fun harvest activities and flavors of the season.  It’s a time to bring families together. Some of our favorite activities include picking apples and pumpkins and building a leaf man (aka scarecrow). The little ones love to jump in a newly raked pile of leafs. We also enjoy the flavors of fall. Mmmmm fresh apple pie right out of the oven with a scoop of ice cream or how about some pumpkin pie french toast?  I came across a recipe for this last year and had to try it since my sons favorite pie is pumpkin. It did not disappoint us.  We had such an overwhelming response for this recipe that we decided to share it with you all. I hope you enjoy!

Pumpkin Pie French Toast recipe

3 eggs (or egg whites)                      2 Tbsp milk

1/8 tsp salt                                           1/4 tsp pumpkin pie spice

1/2 cup pumpkin                               3 Tbsp sugar

1/4 tsp cinammon                             6 slices firm bread

Mix all ingredients (except for the bread) until smooth.  Pour in to  a shallow dish. Dip each slice of bread in mixture. Grill on a hot skillet until golden brown on each side. Serve hot with syrup (add a spray of whipped cream for an extra treat ) Left over toast can be refrigerated or frozen for later use. You can all make the egg mixture the night before, refrigerate it and use it the next morning.

For me I use egg whites, sugar substitute and gluten free bread.   I would love to hear your feedback.

Enjoy your breakfast with a great story from Barefoot books!!!!
