Pumpkin Bread French Toast Bake

Pumpkin Bread French Toast Casserole
So, you know the whole “mix and match” thing comes from me using tried and true recipes and just tweaking them a bit to give them a fresh new taste.  Well, the other day, I needed to take something to church for breakfast and I “mixed and matched” a version of my French Toast Casserole  and made it a little more fall by using pumpkin bread as the base.  Same recipe, new FALL flavor.  Whether you make your pumpkin bread from scratch or buy a loaf from the bakery, you will love this breakfast recipe!
(And pssssst: I have several versions of a French Toast Casserole on here: Cranberry Orange, Red, White & Blueberry, Blueberry, Peanut Butter & Banana…you should check them all out!)
This serves 6 adults.
  
Shopping List
1 loaf of pumpkin bread (about 4 cups of cubed pieces), either store bought or home made
6 eggs
1½ cups milk
1½ cups half-and-half
2 tablespoons pumpkin pie spice
Powdered sugar for dusting, optional
Maple syrup to drizzle on top, optional
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Arrange bread in a lightly greased 13 x 9 inch baking pan; set aside.  Beat with a whisk your eggs, milk, half and half and pumpkin pie spice in a mixing bowl; pour over bread.   Cover and refrigerate overnight or pop in the oven immediately.The next morning, remove from fridge, pop in the oven and bake 45 to 55 minutes.

Remove from oven let stand 5 minutes before serving.  You can dust the top with powdered sugar and/or drizzle maple syrup down over it.

All the flavors of fall in one little breakfast recipe!
