Servings : 10
Prep Time 5 mins
Cook Time 20 mins
Total Time 25 mins


  • 4 large eggs
  • cup milk, I use 2%
  • ½ cup pumpkin puree, NOT pumpkin pie filling
  • 1 tablespoon light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 10 to 12 slices brioche bread, you can also use Texas toast or sliced challah bread
  • 2 tablespoons butter, for the skillet
  • powdered sugar, optional, for serving
  • finely chopped pecans, optional, for serving
  • maple syrup, optional, for serving


  • Preheat a griddle or a nonstick skillet over medium heat.
  • Meanwhile, in a large mixing bowl lightly whisk the eggs just to break up the yolks.
  • To the eggs, add the milk, pumpkin puree, brown sugar, vanilla, pumpkin pie spice, ground cinnamon, and nutmeg; whisk until thoroughly combined.
  • Butter the skillet.
  • Dip the bread into the egg mixture and rotate to coat all sides. Let the pumpkin mixture soak into the bread. Allow excess to drip off.
  • Transfer the bread slices to the skillet or griddle and cook for about 2 minutes per side, or until golden brown.
  • Remove from skillet and transfer to a plate; keep covered while working with the remaining bread slices. Do not forget to add more butter to the skillet, as needed.
  • Top with powdered sugar and chopped pecans, if using, and serve with maple syrup.
