This is a family favorite that we have enjoyed for years.  My husband and I had a weekend getaway for our five year anniversary.  We had a great time visiting the San Diego Beaches, enjoying live music at Balboa Park and dinner in the Gaslamp Quarter.  Before we headed home, we had to find a great spot.  We love a great breakfast. We ended up going to a restaurant called the Breakfast Republic.  They served these huge French toast topped with fresh strawberries.  It was divine.

Once we were home, we reminisced about the crazy french toast.  I decided to recreate it for our kiddos.

This French Toast is one of the renditions of the recipe we have enjoyed for years. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do.


Ingredients

2 loaves of Hawaiian (or bread of your choice)

6 eggs

1/2 cup pumpkin puree

1 tablespoon flaxseed meal

1 tablespoon whole wheat flour

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

1/4 teaspoon clove

dash of salt

1 cup coconut milk

juice of 1/2 lemon

 

Directions

Pre-heat oven to 200 degrees F.

Place all ingredients in a blender and blend well.  Pour into a bowl.

Slice bread into 4 thick slices and quickly dip both sides of bread and place on griddle.  Bake each side for 2-3 min.

******Make sure not to let the bread sit in the egg mixture.  It will get soggy and ruin the finished product.  You simply need to quickly dip and flip the bread and dip again.*******

    • Heidi, you can take the pumpkin out if you don’t like pumpkin. The pumpkin isn’t overwhelming in the recipe though. You just get a hint of it. Thank you for visiting and commenting.

    • I am so glad Shaylee. We love pumpkin and normally cannot get enough of it. However, I have been baking and cooking with pumpkin for the last , soooooooo I will not be making anything pumpkin for the remainder of the year. Except for the pumpkin latte that I have every morning this time of year 😉
