Greetings, fellow pumpkin lovers, I'm back with more delicious Autumn for you with this recipe I recently came up with for my crew.
Using a basic French Toast recipe, I spiced it up a bit by topping it with a Pumpkin Spice Glaze.
Do I have the attention of your taste buds? Read on.
I started with this Nature's Pride Nutty Oat bread, which turned out to be a great choice for this recipe.
Just like the many other varieties of Nature's Pride Bread, it's 100% natural, with no artificial flavors, colors, preservatives, or high fructose corn syrup. It's also a great source of fiber with 14 grams of whole grains per slice.
To make the French toast, you'll need:
1 1/2 cups milk
1 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla
12-14 slices of bread
Whisk the first 5 ingredients together in a medium bowl.
Place the bread slices in a 9x13 or similar-sized dish, and pour the egg mixture over the top. Leave the bread to soak up the liquid for around 10 minutes, rearranging slices half-way through to ensure each piece is covered.
While the bread soaks, prepare the Pumpkin Spice Glaze.
For this, you'll need:
2 cups powdered sugar
4 Tbsp milk
3 Tbsp pumpkin puree
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
Whisk together the sugar and milk, then add in pumpkin and spice. (So easy!)
By this time, the bread should be ready to cook. Brown the slices in a non-stick skillet with a little butter or cooking spray, until you have golden brown French toast.
Just before serving, warm the Pumpkin Spice Glaze in the microwave for a minute or so. Resist the temptation to drink this glaze straight from the bowl. You'll need to reserve some to drizzle over the French toast.
And since this bread is so healthy, you won't feel bad having 2 slices. Twenty-eight grams of fiber never tasted so good.
