Using Fresh and Homemade Ingredients!
I personally like to use homemade ingredients as much as possible. For this easy french toast recipe I like to use homemade pumpkin puree along with homemade pumpkin spice. You can use homemade or store bought when you are making this french toast recipe.
As much as I love to use texas toast when I am making french toast, like with my french toast sticks, it seems we have a shortage all the time in the store near me. It is like impossible to find it and it drives me crazy but I have learned to live. Instead I look for a whole wheat bread that is thicker cut. If you have white bread on hand it will work for this pumpkin french toast recipe too.
How to Freeze French Toast
I like to make a large batch and double or triple this recipe and freeze it for easy breakfasts. Freezing french toast is super easy to do.
Once you are done making all of your french toast allow it to cool completely. Lay the french toast as a single layer on a baking sheet. Place the baking sheet in the freezer for 1-2 hours. Once all of the french toast is frozen remove from the baking sheet and place in a gallon size freezer bag. Seal the freezer bag and store the frozen french toast in the freezer.
How to reheat Frozen French Toast
I find the best way to reheat this pumpkin french toast after I have frozen it is to pop it in the toaster for a few minutes. Then I top it with butter and syrup just like I would normally do if I had made them fresh.
Pumpkin French Toast Ingredients
- 12 slices whole wheat sandwich bread
- 3 eggs
- 1/2 cup milk
- 3/4 cup pumpkin purée
- 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
How to Make Pumpkin French Toast
Heat a griddle or skillet on medium high heat.
In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, pumpkin and pie spice until smooth.
Dip each side of the bread in the pumpkin spice french toast mixture.
Add a little butter or non stick cooking spray to your griddle or pan.
Place the french toast on the griddle or pan and cook until golden brown (1-2 minutes) and then flip to cook the other side until golden brown. Continue this with all pieces of french toast until they are all cooked.
Serve with butter and real maple syrup. Sometimes I also add a sprinkle of powdered sugar.
