Pumpkin French Toast {and Nature Pride’s Giveaway!}


pumpkin french toast

A few weeks ago, I saw a recipe for Pumpkin Pie French Toast on Pinterest that I just had to try.  I love pumpkin, and I love French toast, so I thought it would be a winning combination.

I want to share this recipe with you today. {Here is the original source.}

I bought some Nature’s Pride bread for this recipe.

nature's pride bread




  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ginger
  • 1/8 teaspoon cloves
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 8 slices of bread

Mix the eggs, milk, pumpkin puree, vanilla, cinnamon, ginger, cloves, nutmeg and brown sugar in low flat bowl for easy dipping.

Heat a pan over medium heat.

Dip the bread into the egg mixture on both sides and grill in a pan until lightly golden brown, about 2-3 minute per side. {Makes 4 servings.  Serving size: 2 slices}

I doubled the recipe since I needed to feed 4 hungry boys and 1 hungry man.  Smile

I always sprinkle confectioner’s sugar on my french toast, just like Mom always did.

The boys ate it all up and asked me to make it again sometime, so I give this recipe a “thumbs up.”

    • I use good bread — good bread is like cake to me and the more natural the better — I also am picky about the cheese — no processed for me.

  4. Taylor Horan says:

    Add avocados and sprouts!

  5. I like adding sprouts, too. But I love adding potato chips to my sandwich, too, so I’m not the best person to ask:)

  6. I add sauteed onions and cheese, then either grill on stove or put into panini press.

  7. I add cheese like provolone,sharp cheddar to my sandwich

  8. Bread HAS to be toasted, lightly buttered and lots of mayo! I know…SO not good for you!

  9. I made pumpkin french toast last Sunday after church and my husband thought it was delicious. He has requested it again this weekend. I may have to try making it with Natures Pride bread instead of french bread.

    I use lots of baby spinach, mushrooms and a panini press when I make a sandwich. Oh and lots of cheese.

  10. I bake my own 100% WW bread, WW multi-grain, and a delicious high protein soy bread, so that’s usually enough to make a sandwich special for me. With store bought bread I really like to toast it, especially with crunchy Peanut butter sprinkled with toasted wheat germ. It melts…Yum It was my mom’s favourite and the sandwich that got me through many a swim team practice. CTD

  11. Donna Tanner says:

    I buy pesto and add it to my mayo to make an easy pesto mayo….just the right touch for that plain turkey sandwich.

  12. i will have to try this version of french toast.
    Gotta be great!
    God bless and hope your Autumn is going well,

  13. Kristina A says:

    Home made bread always takes a sandwich up a notch but I don’ t make it often enough!

  14. I put everything but the kitchen sink on it. Love wheat bread. Thanks for the opportunity

  15. Avacado! YUMMY!

  16. Avacado, aoili, pesto, chipoltle mayo- so many fun topping choices, plus, I like to load my sandwiches with lots of veggies, it bulks up the sandwich, and makes me feel full longer!

  17. I add veggies and cheese. Thin cucumbers, tomato, lettuce, thin zucchini – and any kind of cheese!

  18. Add roasted red peppers and grill in a pannini press!

  19. I love a sandwich with lots of crunchy veggies! think grated carrots, and cabbage and thin sliced apples and cucumbers. MM good

  20. To make a sandwich less basic I use really good cheese and grill it.
    Or, if it is peanut butter and jelly, I always use homemade jelly.

    i am the queen of basic! pb&j at least 4 nights a week! i don’t do anything that’s not basic!! plain tuna, plain grilled cheese.. very basic! :)

  22. Love adding a slice of avocado …makes it yummy!

  23. I always like the bread for my sandwich to be lightly toasted. I like to add things that are in season like: sliced tomatoes, avocado, and cucumber. Cheese and lettuce are must haves for me and I sometimes add fresh salsa.

  24. I love adding fresh veggies – especially fresh garden tomato. They are just so much better than store bought ones! Also, some good, fresh, bakery bread cut thick. Yummy stuff!

  25. We like to toast (grilled cheese style) ours with some sesame seeds. I LOVE Nature’s Pride bread! :D

  26. Jessie C. says:

    I add sprouts and kale

  27. Bridgett Junkin says:

    Horseradish spread and avocado. I like my sandwich to kick back a little.

  28. [email protected] says:

    I add avacodo, bacon, olive taponade and Havarti cheese on lightly toasted wheat bread…delish!

  29. Andrea D. says:

    I like to toast the bread up under the broiler and melt some cheese on half. I then top it with whatever we have around. Thanks for the chance to enter.

  30. I add tomatoes, avocado and/or bean sprouts along with a couple different kinds of cheese.

  31. I add some really good horseradish pickles, ripe tomato, lettuce, good quality mustard, cheese. Then spray with butter flavored spray and grill both sides in pan until golden crispy.

  32. stephanie L. says:

    I like to add a spicy mayo or I will grill it up and cut it into little squares and they always end up being a hit with the kids:)

  33. I use Nature’s Pride bread and suddenly my basic sandwich is not so basic any more!

  34. I LOVE french toast. This recipe has my mouth watering. Lots of mayo, tomato and bacon OR toast it grilled cheese style. Southern Living has an awesome grilled cheese recipe that is not yo ordinary grilled cheese. They mix dijon, mayo and add chives…..YUM.

  35. What a tasty recipe! I use this bread all the time. I love to either grill or toast the bread to make a sandwich extra tasty. Using garlic butter adds an extra zip!

  36. Ashleigh H says:

    We add as many veggies to our sandwiches as possible and sliced avocados. And we don’t forget a sprinkle of salt, garlic, and pepper, then a splash of a yummy dressing to compliment the toppings. My favorite dressing is my homemade fig balsamic and cilantro olive oil. Yummo!!

  37. erin meerzaman says:

    I always spruce up a basic sandwich with some yummy veggies whatever is in season and some dijon mustard and alfalfa sprouts!!

  38. The secret is in the bread.

  39. We have sandwiches pretty often in our household since we have four kiddos. I try to jazz them up by adding deli meat with sliced cheddar cheese and fresh romaine lettuce. My kiddos prefer the simple PB&J sandwich.

  40. Of course cheese, lettuce, tomato and mayo are go to condiments that can make any basic sandwich good, but adding my homemade pickles from my Meemaw’s recipe that take me 8 days to make is what makes a good sandwich great!!

  41. I like to add garlic Hummus to a veggie sandwich, on homemade bread.. Mmm

  42. Wow! I’m feeling pretty plain after reading all the delicious ideas. I toast my bread, smash some avacado, bacon and tomato on top. Simple, crunchy, and tasty. :)

  43. Waco Bayless says:

    A good sandwich is all about the bread for me. One of my favorites is Italian fresh from the bakery.

  44. Andrea Rivers says:

    I love a good BLAT… Bacon, Lettuce , Avocado and Tomato… Avocado just steps it up a notch and adds a little somethin’ somethin’…

    But for the Pumpkin French toast- I am sOOOOO making this in the morning! I have everything…. um… hopefully . :) TFS

  45. Carri Hewitt says:

    DORITOS of course! Pop some good ole fashioned Doritos in there right between the meat and the cheese:) The perfect crunch! My kiddies love it!

  46. Jamie Martin says:


  47. Jerri C. TN says:

    I added broccoli slaw or alfalfa sprouts to all of my sandwiches………yum!

  48. Grilled cheese is a go to basic sandwich for us in the Fall. I recently found a way to send it over the top: A hearty bread, mozzarella cheese, sliced tomatoes and pesto – yummy!

  49. very light mayo and swiss cheese!

  50. I add lots of ketchup.!

  51. I use hummus or mashed avocado for added protein.

  52. Load it up with lots of lettuce and turkey and add some avocado!!!!

  53. flavored mayo or mustard

  54. I love to add veggies like red pepper strips,cucumbers and use hummus instead of mayo.

  55. Add cucumber for crunch!

  56. mmm. bread. :) We just love bread and all things consisting of bready, cheesy goodness. We like a nice Caprese sandwich with fresh buffalo mozzarella, vine ripened tomatoes and fresh basil leaves drizzled with some balsamic vinegar. Just yum.
    Or, since we have been on this kick lately – steam some brats with one can of beer , split in half and slather with yummy mustard and fresh sauerkraut. Ahhh.
    I love sandwiches. Thanks for this post!! :)
