Of course cooking with Pumpkin is part of Halloween too.
Pumpkin French Toast
6 slices of Challah, or other Egg Bread
3 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup of half and half or heavy cream
1/2 cup of canned pumpkin
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp ginger
1/4 tsp ground cloves
3 tbsp of butter
1 tbsp or less of vegetable oil
Combine the eggs, half and half or heavy cream, canned pumpkin, and spices in a shallow bowl or pyrex dish. Soak the slices of bread in the mixture for about 3 minutes per side.
Heat a skillet or griddle over medium high heat and melt about 1 tbsp of butter and a drop of vegetable oil for every 2 slices of bread. Fry the bred for about 2 minutes per side and keep warm in the oven as you make batches of french toast. Serve with maple syrup.
