pumpkin french toast


i have a confession to make this halloween: i am not one for the all-things-pumpkin craze. i know. i know. don't get me wrong, i love a good pumpkin cake, pie, etc., but at some point in the fall every year EVERYTHING starts to taste like a pumpkin, and it's just a little much for me. all that to say, i may be changing my stance - because this pumpkin french toast was oh so delicious. look at me growing.

this is an indulgent, comforting breakfast... but i think it would be even better as a midnight snack!

here's what you'll need:
2 eggs
1/4 cup buttermilk (regular milk is fine, but i had this on hand)
1/4 cup canned pumpkin
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp cinnamon
dash of nutmeg
2 tblspn brown sugar
8 slices of bread

heat a pan over medium heat. 

whisk all of the ingredients (except the bread, silly) together in a bowl until completely combined. a shallow bowl will make dipping the bread easier.

it will be THICK. don't fret.

dip each piece of bread into the mixture on both sides, then grill pan until lightly browned on both sides (mine took about 3 minutes per side). 

how festive are these colors?

serve hot with a dusting of powdered sugar and cinnamon and some good syrup. 

and have a happy halloween!!! xx
