Pumpkin French Toast

November 01, 2010

We make French toast every weekend at my house for the kids, and this Pumpkin French Toast is my latest hit. I love to start with Challah bread which is my secret ingredient to this wonderful breakfast. If you can’t find Challah, use Brioche or the closest thing you can find. This recipe even works great lightened up a bit using egg whites and skim milk. Sprinkle Pumpkin Pie Spice over the top for a delicious taste of the season. This is great to serve for the kids, for company or on Thanksgiving or Christmas.

Pumpkin French Toast

Prep: 15 minutes
Cook: 4 minutes
Yield: 4 to 6 servings
2 egg whites
1 egg
1/4 cup skim milk
2 tablespoons butter, divided
6 slices Challah bread (1/2-inch-thick)
2 tablespoons butter
1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1 Maple Syrup
1. In a shallow bowl whisk egg whites, egg and milk until blended.

2. Heat a large nonstick frying pan over medium heat. Melt 1 tablespoon butter in skillet, tipping pan to coat. Quickly dip bread, 1 piece at a time, into egg batter, coating both sides but not drenching. Lay bread in skillet and repeat with remaining bread. Cook until golden brown, 1 1/2 to 2 minutes; then flip, add remaining butter, and cook until second side is golden brown, 1 1/2 to 2 minutes more.

3. Transfer French toast to plates. Sprinkle with pumpkin pie spice and serve with maple syrup.

My family loves French toast. I will definitely have to try this version. I agree that Challah bread is the best for French toast.

This looks like a perfect fall weekend breakfast. Now I'm wishing I'd picked up some Challah bread.
