This pumpkin pie French toast recipe is a great twist on the classic holiday flavor. It also happens to be a really simple recipe and is perfect to do with the kids around. One thing I’d like to mention, make sure to keep the stove temperature set to medium when you heat your skillet up. If the skillet is too hot, it’ll cook the outside too much before the inside gets done. Then you’d just be left with a soggy inside, which isn’t nearly as appetizing. Every stove is a bit different but try to go for a low-medium or medium heat setting.
I really love to top these with some whipped cream. It goes perfectly with the original pumpkin pie theme. Plus there are a bit fewer calories in whipped cream compared to maple syrup. If you’re looking to make these a bit creamier tasting, use heavy cream in place of the milk. Also try experimenting with different types of bread.
These are great to make any time during the year. Have them in the morning to get yourself pumped for the holidays, even if it happens to be in the middle of summer. It’s a nice way to eat something a bit indulgent without a ton of calories. It’s healthier than eating a slice of real pumpkin pie anyway!
