I so wish I’d doubled this recipe while I was making it. Tripled, or quadrupled even!

These were so delicious…perfect for the fall season.

It’s really simple…you just add some pumpkin and spices to the egg-milk mixture.

Then make French toast as you would.

Le photos…

The eggs, milk, pumpkin and spices.

Whisked.

It will be thick.

Don’t fret.

They will cook just fine.

Cook in skillet or on griddle.

Greased.

Well greased.

Grease in between batches too.

The flipped side.

With the leftovers, I cut them into “french toast sticks” and froze them. They freeze beautifully and the kids got to enjoy them for lunch a few days later!
