How to Add a Little Fall Into Your Breakfast!

How to Add a Little Fall Into Your Breakfast!

As you can tell by my other blogs, I’m on a big all recipe kick right now. I’ve shared dessert recipes, bread recipes and now it’s time for a breakfast recipe!

I found this recipe while cruising through Pinterest and the title caught my eye: Pumpkin French Toast Sticks!

To make these yummy little breakfast sticks all you need is:

  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp pumpkin spice
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 loaf of bread (depending on how many slices you want)
  • 2/3 cups milk

Instructions:

  1. Set a large non-stick skillet set over medium heat, add a small amount of butter and melt.
  2. In a small rectangular baking dish, whisk together the eggs, milk, pumpkin puree, vanilla, cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice.
  3. Dip the bread into the mixture, flip sides and then place on the hot skillet. Cook until each side is golden brown, about 2 minutes on each side.
  4. Meanwhile, in a small rectangular baking dish, combine the sugar and cinnamon, set aside.
  5. Remove the fully cooked french toast sticks from the skillet and immediately roll in the cinnamon sugar mixture. Serve hot with maple syrup or buttered pecan syrup.
