Good morning! I had a fabulous weekend, what about you? The weather here was crazy, it was 90 but I guess the good news is that we did not get any snow like the Dakota’s. I think that we are in for a crazy winter but for now I am going to wait for Fall to come back and enjoy it.
Fall is my favorite season as it is for many and I am busy trying many new and old pumpkin and apples recipes. This weekend was no exception, I made Pumpkin Pie French Toast. Apple Almond Pie, Pumpkin Cake and a few more things I will share with you this week.
French toast is tasty weekend treat and this weekend I decided to use up a little pumpkin that I had left over from another recipe. The recipe is your standard toast recipe with the addition of pumpkin puree and a host of spices. This recipe is so easy, and delicious.
Pumpkin Pie French Toast with Pecans
1/4 cup of milk or cream
3 or 4 tablespoons of pumpkin puree
dash of cinnamon
dash of cloves
dash of nutmeg
splash of vanilla
4 slices of day old french bread
Garnish with pecans and maple syrup
Whisk all ingredients, except the bread in a shallow bowl. Once well mixed, place bread into mixture and let sit for a few minutes then turn over and do the same.
Heat pan to medium heat and grill the bread until golden brown.
Serve with pecans and maple syrup.
This recipe is a keeper and one that I cannot wait to enjoy again. The addition of the pumpkin puree and the spices makes this a delectable treat for the weekend and for the upcoming holidays!
What did you make or do this weekend? Share your recipes or travels, I would love to hear about them!
Have a great day!
