OK, I have another pumpkin recipe for you guys! I just can’t get enough this Fall. This holiday season, Tetra Pak and Pacific Foods sent me a few items to sample in environment-friendly packaging: pumpkin puree, jellied cranberry sauce, and chicken stock. Now, you all know how much I am loving pumpkin recipes this fall, so I decided to try out the pumpkin puree first! I made some delicious pumpkin french toast, which was just the perfect thing to warm me up on a chilly morning.
Here are the products I received:
The pumpkin french toast recipe is very simple – no baking required! Enjoy :)!
Whip up eggs, milk, cinnamon, sugar and pumpkin puree, then soak each slice of bread before cooking on a heated skillet.

Love the idea of pumpkin French Toast – not something I’ve made before. Love the idea of this way of packaging things, too. Thanks for putting it on my radar screen.
Sounds like a great twist on French toast!
That pumpkin toast looks really delicious and what a great way to start the day. We don’t eat pumpkin in all the various ways you do in the US so I’m enjoying seeing all these recipes xx
Yum, such a creative way to serve french toast!
That is a beautiful and yum look toast.
Can’t wait to try out some of the products.
Perfect breakfast for Thanksgiving weekend!
Thanks Cathy, I agree!
