Pumpkin French Toast

This is a recipe that I found on a blog last week called “With Style and Grace”. We tweaked it to our liking (her recipe had gluten-free bread & almond milk) and tried it. It was two thumbs up at our breakfast table!




Pumpkin French Toast
Ingredients:
6 eggs
1/2 cup pumpkin puree
2 Tbsp soy milk (or 2 %)
2 tsp ground cinnamon
pinch of nutmeg (or two)
2 tsp vanilla extract
8 slices of artisan (crusty, dense) bread
optional- add1-2 tbsp of brown sugar
Toppings:
Chopped pecans, maple syrup, powdered sugar and of course, butter
Directions:
In a large shallow bowl (we use a pie plate), whisk together the eggs, pumpkin puree, milk, cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla.
Place the slices of bread into the egg mixture and let soak while the pan heats up (3-5 minutes). *We did not do this, because we had more bread than the original recipe, so we added more milk and soaked them for a shorter time.*
Spray griddle with non-stick cooking spray, that is heated over medium high heat. Place slices on the griddle and cook until golden brown, about 2-3 minutes. Turn the slices over and cook another 2-3 minutes. Remove slices to plates, and serve with toppings. 
Serves 4-6 people.
Hope your family likes it too!
