As a rule of thumb, when Autumn hits all things Pumpkin are pretty much necessary! We love Crockpot French Toast for a special breakfast, but we decided to spice things up a bit with this Crockpot Pumpkin French Toast and boy am I glad we did!
It all started when I ran up to the store for a couple things and found this loaf of Cuban bread on sale for $0.30. YES, thirty cents! I couldn’t pass that up! It was screaming to become french toast casserole.
When I got home I cubed the bread and put it in the crockpot. Then in a bowl I mixed the pumpkin, egg, milk, pumpkin spice, and vanilla. I poured that over the top and placed the entire crock in the fridge overnight.
PS: If you have left over canned pumpkin, here is a fun trick so it doesn’t go to waste!
Early the next morning I pulled the crock out and placed it in the crockpot. Turned it on high for 2 hours and before I knew it the whole house smelled like Fall!
Served up with a bit of maple syrup and it was perfection!
