Pumpkin Pie French Toast

Do you have some pumpkin leftover after Halloween? How about using it to make a pumpkin pie? Before you set into making that pumpkin pie, how about some pumpkin pie french toast for a nice relaxing brunch after all of that Halloween partying last night? When I came across the concept of pumpkin french toast on Recipe Girl recently I knew that I would have to make it while I had some fresh in season pumpkin on hand and the morning after Halloween seemed like the perfect time. French toast is pretty easy to make and always good! It is a really nice weekend breakfast or brunch treat when you have a bit more time in the morning. This french toast of course includes some pumpkin puree and pumpkin pie spices in the batter to give it the pumpkin pie flavours. I served my pumpkin pie french drenched in maple syrup with a side of crumbs of the gingersnap crust that I used in my pumpkin pie for a topping. (You can just make the crust, bake it until golden brown, let it cool and crumble it.)

Darn, I just ate the last of my pumpkin bread. I wish I had some left to make french toast.

I've made pumpkin pancakes but never french toast. The picture is fabulous!

Ninette said...

Great idea. I like the cute little pumpkin in the back.

Choosy Beggar Tina said...

Great way to use up leftover pumpkin puree! I loathe pancakes, but French toast is always a nice Sunday morning treat. And it's also totally okay to spike your maple syrup with Grand Marnier and say to hell with the fact that it's only 10 am.....just saying...

Matron said...

How absolutely wonderful! I must try that, especially the bit about serving it with maple syrup! mmm

The DeL Sisters said...

YUM! I love anything pumpkin!

sweetbird said...

Oh man Kevin. I hope my husband doesn't hear about pumpkin French toast or I'll have to make it for breakfast every single day.

This does look amazing, though. I've tried a similar technique using bananas. I definitely have to try pumpkin now.

Jessica said...

Yum, Yum, Yum!!!!! I made this for breakfast today and this has become my new favorite fall breakfast. It tastes just like pumpkin pie, and that, to me, is perfection.

Kat White said...

Made it this morning. Definite win!

Anne said...

Pure genius! I just made them & they were fantastic!

Shauna said...

It was a big hit with the whole family. I made a double batch and some of the batter left over. I added a little more egg and baked it in a water bath in the oven. Delicious. This was very sweet french toast, so instead of syrup, I ate it with a schmeer of greek yogurt on top.

Patty said...

Found this recipe on your blog through Pinterest. Looks amazing!

Pretty soon the pumpkins will be here and I will enjoy making these again!

What a long line of pumpkin lovers we are. Thanks so much for what looks to be an outrageous French Toast.Will make it this weekend !!!!!

Barbie Thorn said...

Looks to be an outrageous recipie. Will have to make it this weekend. Hope all of you pumpkin lovers enjoy as well.

Tina Florey said...

I make home made pumpkin pies every year, but the thing to remember when using a Halloween pumpkin is that if you burn a candle in it..you will taste that in your recipe. I just buy an extra pumpkin for cooking purposes or put one of those little fake tea lights inside.

Erica said...

I made this last weekend with homemade pumpkin bread and it was amazing! The pumpkin bread itself didn't really have a strong pumpkin flavour, but the flavour of the french toast was very pumpkin pie! I'm sure it would have been just as great with regular bread.

Anonymous said...

This looks AWESOME. I would like to make this for a brunch party of about 25 people. Do you think it will be just as good made an hour or so earlier and put in a chafing dish heated by sterno? I'm worried that it will get "soggy"???

Kevin Lynch said...

Anonymous: I have not tried it but that should work. It will not be as good as fresh but it should not be soggy.

Anonymous said...

is this receipe for 4 pieces of bread?

Kevin Lynch said...

Anonymous: The recipe calls for 8, 1 inch thick, slices of bread but you can cut it down to 4 if you prefer.
