I had some left over challah bread from my Pumpkin Spice Bread Pudding, so I whipped up a quick pumpkin, egg and milk mixture and surprised my husband with two slices of happiness!

The toast has a subtle pumpkin flavor and is bursting with cinnamon and nutmeg flavor! I used 2% milk and only 1 tablespoon of brown sugar in the egg mixture, so it is leaning towards healthy.

While you could make this healthier by using whole wheat bread, that would be sad, because there is something so magical about thick cut Challah French toast. The eggy bread flavor combined with the spiced pumpkin is not to be missed.

The egg dip calls for a drop of vanilla extract. I have shockingly steady hands, so I drip the extract straight from the bottle, but if you worry about accidentally dumping in too much (a distinct possibility), you could pour 1/8 teaspoon and then add about half.

Add a pat of butter like my husband and pour on the pure maple syrup! This is one warming, Fall breakfast that you will crave all year long!!

Yield: 4 Piece of Toast

Pumpkin Spice French Toast for Two

The Pumpkin Spice French Toast has a subtle pumpkin flavor and is bursting with cinnamon and nutmeg flavor! Serve with butter, maple syrup or apple sauce for the perfect indulgent breakfast for two!

Ingredients

  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup 2% milk
  • 1 tablespoon dark brown sugar, unpacked
  • ¼ teaspoon Saigon cinnamon
  • pinch freshly ground nutmeg
  • 2 tablespoons pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie mix)
  • 4 slices Challah bread, cut ¾ inch thick.
  • 1 tablespoon butter

Instructions

  1. Preheat a cast iron skillet over medium-low heat until hot but not smoking. Add the tablespoon of butter to the skillet. It should melt immediately but not begin to burn or smoke.
  2. Whisk together egg, milk, sugar, spices, and pumpkin in a medium shallow bowl.
  3. Place the first slice of bread into the egg mixture and press down with a fork for several seconds, flip and press down allowing the bread to absorb the egg mixture for several seconds. Place in skillet and immediately repeat the process with the remaining bread slices. Let cook for 2 minutes or until it is nicely browned; flip and cook on the second side an additional 2-4 minutes or until it is brown and the toast gives a bit of resistance when pressed lightly with the back of a fork. I use a 14 inch cast iron skillet. You can work in batches if you don’t have a large skillet. If you are multiplying the recipe, you can keep the cooked slices warm covered in a slow oven.
  4. Serve immediately with butter and maple syrup! Or even apple sauce.
