Pumpkin Pie French Toast

I really enjoy making breakfast food. It is definitely my favorite meal to cook for. I am always looking for different versions of waffles and french toast. I found this recipe on the Closet Cooking blog. I really like Kevin's blog because he has a lot of recipes that are similar to my style of cooking. I found this recipe in his 25 outstanding pumpkin recipes post. This is going to be the first of many pumpkin recipes to come I think because I have been printing out so many pumpkin recipes recently.

I definitely do not have the patience to scoop out the pulp in a pumpkin so I used can pumpkin for this recipe. All the spices in this recipe make the french toast really savory. I really liked this one a lot. For the small amount of pumpkin that is in this recipe it is packed full of flavor.
