Fall Inspired French Toast

Whoever came up with pumpkin pie spice is a genius. I don’t care what you say. . . I love it. In my coffee, my latte, in muffins, popovers, cakes, waffles, banana breads, cookies and everything. So, naturally I had to reach for it for this Fall inspired french toast! It actually makes perfect sense because most recipes use cinnamon and nutmeg and those are two key ingredients for French toast. Click here to read about the history of french toast.

This recipe is extremely easy to make and very hard to mess up. The biggest question I get? What kind of bread should I use? I would recommend challah, brioche, or a thick white bread. I’m using a farmhouse white bread from my grocery store’s bakery. Try this recipe and let me know what you think!

*You can also cook the french toast in olive oil if desired
How to FREEZE:
Place the French toast in a single layer on a cookie sheet and put them in the freezer until partly frozen for about 1 to 2 hours. After frozen solid put the frozen French toast into a freezer bag. You can also wrap each piece of toast in a sheet of plastic food wrap, parchment paper or plastic wrap and place the wrapped toast in a freezer bag or tin foil. To re-heat, simply reheat in your toaster oven.
I would try to eat the frozen french toast slices within 1-2 weeks.
