It's okay to put pumpkin in everything, right??? I think so! First of all, if you're not using a brioche loaf for French Toast, boy are you missing out! I highly recommend the loaf by St. Pierre Bakery found in grocery stores, but maybe you have your own favorite brand? Make the French toast custard by mixing up your eggs, milk, pumpkin puree, brown sugar, vanilla, cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice, then dunk in those pillowy slices of brioche. I like a quick flip to each side of the bread, then into a hot, buttery pan, and I like mine WELL DONE! Brown and crispy is the way to go! Top with syrup or even some cinnamon whipped cream! You can do this!

  • 12 slices (about 1 loaf) brioche bread
  • 2 beaten eggs
  • 1/2 c milk
  • 1/4 c pumpkin puree
  • 2 tsp brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • Pinch of salt
  • Butter for frying
  • Syrup or whipped cream for serving

Combine all ingredients except bread to make the custard. Be sure to combine thoroughly!
Prepare a hot, nonstick pan with butter. When butter is sizzling, dip in one piece of bread then quickly flip to dip the other side, then place in hot pan. Repeat with bread, only dipping as you have space in the pan so the slices don't get too saturated.
Brown both sides of French toast in the pan, adding more butter into pan as needed.
Serve with syrup or cinnamon whipped cream.
  • If not using brioche bread, you may want to up the brown sugar to 1 TBSP.

    How long will the dipping sauce last?

      Are you referring to the custard that you dip the bread in?

      I would say 2-3 days, but you can also halve the recipe.

      Another option would be to make all 12 slices, then allow to cool, wrap individually, and freeze. They will reheat nicely in a toaster!
