Ingredients

  • 1 French bread or baguette
  • 2-3 tbs unsalted butter

Custard:

  • 3 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice

Filling:

  • 8 oz cream cheese softened
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 3 tbs brown sugar
  • 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla

Instructions

  • Cut the French bread into 1-inch/2.5 cm slices.
  • Beat together all the filling ingredients.
  • Spread about 2-3 tablespoons of the filling on HALF the bread slices. Place a plain slice on top of the one with the filling making a “sandwich.”
  • Whisk together the eggs, milk and pumpkin pie spice. Pour into a large (13 x 9 is good) deep pan.
  • Place the “sandwiches” in the egg mixture and let it soak in for about 3 minutes; turn and soak the other side.
  • Melt half the butter in a large non-stick skillet over medium-low heat. When the butter starts foaming, place the french toast in the pan but do not overcrowd the pan. Fry for 3-4 minutes or until golden brown. Turn, add the remaining butter and brown on the other side for the same time.
  • To keep warm, place on a cookie sheet in a 200F/100C oven.

Notes

For UK folks--mixed spice is a good substitute for pumpkin pie spice.
