I subscribe to Kraft's What's Cooking magazine and generally I don't really like their recipes even if I know they are crowd favorites.
TOO MUCH CHEESE! TOO MUCH PROCESSED FOOD!
But I have to admit that in their quest to make us buy their products they come up with pretty interesting recipes.
Like this one
Make-ahead pumpkin french toast
Of course i had to bend the recipe to my specs! First, I didn't have any canned pumpkin in the house, nor cream cheese...but I think it would've been overkill
My bread was pre-sliced and way to thin so I didn't soak it overnight,I made the liquid part the night before with 3 eggs, 1/2 cup of milk, 2 TBSP of sugar, a good glug of maple syrup, some vanilla and pumpkin pie spice.
Which I did not have, but I was so sure I had some from my last trip to Maine. Well anyways....I made my own! I had the ingredients, so no money spent there.
I dipped the bread maybe 45 minutes before then browned it in a pan.
Here's the link for the recipe Pumpkin pie spice
Here's the result
I made enough that we were able to bring some the next day for breakfast!
