Pumpkin French Toast Casserole

Don’t you love fall with the cooler weather, the leaves changing colors and the pumpkin recipes from coffee drinks to bread pudding. And then someone came up with this Pumpkin French Toast Casserole with a praline could something be so perfect on a cool fall morning. This would be a Sunday morning treat as this recipe takes 1 hour and 15 minutes to make and well worth it. Serves 8


French Toast:
1 16 oz loaf of French bread
4 tablespoons butter, melted
1 1/2 cup milk
5 large eggs
3/4 cup pumpkin purée
2 tablespoons pumpkin pie spice

Praline topping:
1 cup butter, melted
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup chopped pecans
2 tablespoons light corn syrup or honey
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg


French Toast: cut bread into 1/2” pieces and place in a 9x13 backing dish. In a medium bowl beat together the remaining French Toast ingredients until well combined. Pour over bread, press bread down so each piece soaks up egg mixture. Cover with foil and refrigerate for 8-12 hours.

Preheat oven 350F

Praline topping: melt butter in a medium bowl in the microwave. Pour the rest of the ingredients into the melted butter and stir until combined. Pour over the French Toast Casserole. Bake uncovered 50-60 minutes. Let cool 10 minutes before serving. Yum Yum!
