Sweet and spicy pumpkin french toast is made the night before for an easy, early-morning preparation.
Serves: 10
Pumpkin French Toast Bake

Ingredients
  • 3 1/2 cups 1-inch bread cubes
  • 7 large eggs
  • 2 cups milk (any kind)*
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin butter (or pumpkin puree)*
  • 3-4 tablespoons brown sugar for topping
  • nuts, like pecan or walnuts (optional)
Instructions
  1. Cut any kind of bread into 1-inch cubes – I recommend a crusty, whole grain variety. If using sandwich bread, use 5-7 thick slices. Then, spread into a lightly greased 9×13 baking dish.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, vanilla and pumpkin butter until well combined. Pour over bread and push down with a spoon or your hands until it’s all soaked and mostly covered. Cover with saran wrap or lid and refrigerate overnight.
  3. In the morning, preheat oven to 350 degrees, uncover and top with brown sugar and nuts (optional). Bake for 35-45 minutes.
  4. Serve immediately with maple syrup, honey or agave nectar. Store leftovers in the refrigerator covered for up to a couple days.
Notes
* I used 2%, but use skim or low-fat for a lighter recipe. Alternatively, use non-dairy such as soy or almond. * If using pumpkin puree instead of butter, compensate the flavor by adding a bit more puree, pumpkin pie spice, and adding a little agave nectar or maple syrup to the batter.
