- 4 large eggs
- 2/3 cup milk
- 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
- 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
For the Coating
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
Set a large non-stick skillet set over medium heat, add a small amount of butter and melt. Or use a large griddle and butter once hot.
In a small rectangular baking dish, whisk together the eggs, milk, pumpkin puree, vanilla, cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice.
Dip the bread into the mixture, flip sides and then place on the hot skillet (or griddle). Cook until each side is golden brown, about 2 minutes on each side.

Remove the fully cooked french toast sticks from the skillet and immediately roll in the cinnamon sugar mixture. Serve hot with maple syrup or buttered pecan syrup.
