Ingredients

  • 6 ounces 1/3-less-fat cream cheese softened
  • 3/4 cup pumpkin puree not pumpkin pie mix
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
  • 16 slices French country-style bread
  • 1 3/4 cups 1% milk
  • 8 eggs
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
  • 3 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup chopped pecans toasted

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 200 degrees F.
  • In a medium bowl, mix together cream cheese, pumpkin puree, 1 tablespoon maple syrup, cinnamon and nutmeg until fairly smooth (it's okay if there are a few lumps).
  • Divide the pumpkin mixture across 6 pieces of bread. Place the pieces of bread on top to form sandwiches.
  • Preheat a nonstick griddle to 375 degrees or a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. With a nonstick griddle, it's not necessary to use any butter, but you may find you need to coat a nonstick skillet with some butter or cooking spray.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together milk, eggs, maple syrup, vanilla and salt. Transfer to a shallow dish.
  • Place sandwiches in the egg batter, working with 2 at a time. Let the mixture soak into the bread, about 1 minute per side.
  • Transfer the sandwiches to the prepared griddle or skillet and cook until the bread is golden brown, about 3 minutes per side.
  • Transfer to the oven to keep warm, laying the French toast in a single layer on a wire rack set over a large baking sheet.
  • Repeat with remaining sandwiches.
  • Serve with toasted pecans and maple syrup.
