Pumpkin French Toast with Whipped Pumpkin Butter


It is pumpkin week this week here at RMK! This is seriously one of the weeks that I look forward to the most each year!

Oh man, and do I have some good pumpkin recipes lined up for this week. We are starting off the week with a breakfast recipe that incorporates pumpkin in 2 ways – first in the batter for the french toast and then in the butter that you top the french toast with. It really is a great way to enjoy pumpkin for your breakfast.

It is just like regular french toast but with a dose of fall flavor. The butter is amazing with it also. It just adds in even more fall flavor to it. I have a orange walnut butter I have shared before that would also be wonderful to serve this with.
