Recipe Notes

  • You could use honey instead of maple syrup.
  • You can use pumpkin pie spice instead of the individual spices listed. 
  • Instead of brioche, you can use your bread of choice.
  • Instead of pecans, you could try almonds or walnuts.
  • Serve with butter and maple syrup, and garnish with candied nuts and powdered sugar, if desired.
  • Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Reheat in the microwave.

Here's how to make it: 

  1. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together eggs, half and half or milk, pumpkin puree, spices, salt, brown sugar and vanilla. Working one or two slices at a time, dip bread into the egg mixture, allowing it to bathe for at least 10 to 20 seconds to soak up the egg mixture.
  2. In a large sauté pan, melt 1 to 2 tablespoons of butter over medium heat. Working in batches, add the egg-soaked bread slices to the pan and cook until evenly golden brown and caramelized, about 2 to 3 minutes on each side. Continue with the remaining slices. 
  3. Serve immediately with maple syrup, and garnish with crushed candied pecans and powdered sugar, if desired.
