I have to apologize for this post in advance. On the one hand, this idea is just too good not to share, and I feel confident that anyone who has made French toast can do it. On the other hand, I have no recipe.
For one thing, I made the dish before I got bronchitis, and as everyone knows sick time is basically twice as long as regular time–i.e., there is no way I can remember what I did back then and shame on me for not writing it down. For another thing, even if I had written it down I would have had to guess. Because I did not measure anything, instead I started with how much leftover canned pumpkin I had (about 3/4 – 1 cup) and kept adding eggs and milk until the consistency looked right. I think I used 4 eggs, not sure about the milk, and I know I added a drizzle of maple syrup, a little vanilla and a lot of cinnamon. Soak each piece of preferably stale bread for at least 5 minutes, hopefully a little longer. Fry in a pat of butter on medium to low heat. Serve with maple syrup. Helpful? Well anyway, try it, I promise you will like it! It made about 6 fairly thick slices of French toast from leftover homemade sandwich bread.
I think most of us can catch the jist of your recipe. ;o). It looks YUMMY!
with ample maply syrup and cinnamon, i do believe i could begin to enjoy a little pumpkin-flavored bread. now get back to normal health already! 🙂

You will never find a recipe for French Toast in my blog because I am just like you. It's one of those foods I can't even begin to recipize. I just go by look as I'm cracking eggs and pouring milk and adding flavors.
I have a feeling this is the kind of recipe that would taste good no matter what! As long as we've made French toast before, I think we can handle it. Amazing concept though!
Look absolutely yummy!! gloria
I am so glad you made these! Thanks for trying them, and convincing me to make them!
Hang in there! I am also sick and know the feeling! Nice pic though!

It seems like everyone is getting sick these days, I know the feeling!
Yum. I'll experiment with this over the weekend 🙂
