FRENCH TOAST FROM LEFTOVER PUMPKIN PIE!!! Yep- It's true!

Well, I already KNOW you all
think I am crazy..
so I might as well add to my legend!

I wasn't going to post this weekend
but this is too good not to share
while you still have leftover
PUMPKIN PIE!

WHAT do you do with 
LEFTOVER PUMPKIN PIE?
Well, if you live with ME
you might just get a piece of
THIS!
Well. you will notice that I didn't
POLISH the silverware for you!
Shhh..close your eyes and only look at the toast, m'kay?

Do you have some of THIS around your house?
You know the crust gets kinda 'soggy'
and it loses a bit of its appeal, right?
Well, cheer up!
I have a FIX IT for you!

Here is what you will need:
Scrape a few tablespoons of pumpkin pie
off the crust and spread it on
one slice of 
WHITE BREAD.
(It does NOT taste nearly as good 
on whole grain bread-sorry)
Spread some softened CREAM CHEESE
on the another slice of white bread.
Whip 2 eggs with about 1/2 cup of 
half and half and 
a teaspoon (or more) of GOOD VANILLA!
Put the two slices of bread together and
DIP THEM into the EGG MIXTURE.

They should be saturated but not too soggy.
Place it in a preheated buttered frying pan
and cook over medium to medium-high heat.
Oh! Yeah! Baby!
Wait til ol' bj over at Sweet Nothings 
sees this-
She is gonna think she died and went to
BREAKFAST HEAVEN!
She is my
"recipe tester"!

Now, I also made another one but forgot to 
take pictures.
Same thing EXCEPT-
Spread one side with Cream Cheese,
Add 2 Tablespoons leftover Cranberry Sauce,
Put a few thin slices of turkey breast 
on the other side.
Dip in egg and fry just like regular french toast.
Different and OH SO GOOD!

Easiest way to start a fight at the 
DESSERT TABLE!
You all have a great rest of the weekend.
I am recovering from a 
FRENCH TOAST COMA!

Your French toast ideas sound soooo good! I'm not crazy picky about everything needing to be "just so", but that last picture of the pie is seriously disturbing!! :) -Jenn

Cozy Little House said...

Oh, I just can't! I'm so sick of pumpkin pie. I ate the whole pie but it took Sunday through Friday.

Simply LKJ said...

Oh my, that sounds and looks deadly!! And yes, I can so see BJ loving this one. Her recipes always make me hungry.

Pom Pom said...

What a great idea! I don't have any pumpkin pie but next time I do, I'm making that!

Debra She Who Seeks said...

Oh man, that DOES sound good! I'm going to try this sometime!

Linda @ Itsy Bits And Pieces said...

Oh wow...that does sound delicious!

Karen said...

You should sell your recipes to IHOP!!

Kelly said...

Yum! I love french toast so this looks like a good way to make it! We will have to do this after we cook our pumpkin pie though. We only cooked our pecan pie this time. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

Kathy said...

This sounds incredible!

Vee said...

Okay...it just so happens... You can be sure that I will be back to let you know what I think.

bj said...

GREAT BALLS OF FIRE...and I ate the very last slice of our Pumpkin Cheese Cake at noon today..I did, however, remember to take a pic of it.....but, I have some left over pumpkin puree...surely I can figure out how to use it with your recipe...it sounds and looks soooo good. You have never steered me wrong yet...everything you make and I copy you tastes good...it's getting where (after the hit of your Choc. Gravy) everyone wants to know if my new creation is a Nana Thang...I say, taste it, if it's good, it's Nana's.....hahhaa Thanks for giving my name a shout out...love you, sweet lady

cards4ubylouise and other treasures said...

Great idea....if I could get the pumpkin pie to last longer. Husband would eat the whole thing if given the chance!!!

Donna said...

Holy cow, that is outstanding! Have to show this to the hubster, only thing is, he finished off the pumpkin pie today. However, I think Fresh Thyme still has their pies on sale and they are actually pretty good. xoxo

Merlesworld said...

We never have pumpkin pie but I'm very fond of french toast.

Chatty Crone said...

I have never ever seen anything like that - and would never ever have thought of it - but I have to say this - it looks really great!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Joy of Home with Martha Ellen said...

My goodness, Diana, this looks so good! No pumpkin pie leftover---boo hoo... Have a great evening. xo ♥

Gypsy Heart said...

Only you, girlfriend! :) Seriously, what a creative treat! Amazingly, I haven't had a single piece of pumpkin pie this season. Obviously, if I don't make it, there is none! Lol

Gingi Freeman said...

OMG!!!!!! I have to try this first thing in the morning!!! Not even joking! We have so much leftover pie!! - http://www.domesticgeekgirl.com

amazingsusan said...

And the best thing is that it's LOW CAL! ;)

Cecilia Bramhall said...

Oh darn! All the pumpkin pie is gone. But the cranberry and turkey...hmmm!

Jettie said...

oh, I know, I'll buy a day old pumpkin pie at Kroger and make this. We don't get pumpkin pies because the man of the house prefers apple, or cherry, but no sweet tater or punkin.

Cathy @ My 1929 Charmer said...

Don't know what happened to the comment I was writing...do you have ghosts on your blog? I wanted to thank you for the luscious looking little treat. OMG I don't have any pumpkin and your making me so hungry!!!!

Junkchiccottage said...

This looks soooo good but all of us piggies ate all the pumpkin pie so no fun french toast for us!!!
Hugs,
Kris

Adam said...

My wife really looked forward to pumpkin pie this year

FlowerLady Lorraine said...

Oh yum!!! I'll be right over. I'll bring my own coffee!

Katie Clooney said...

Oh yum!!! I'll be right over. I'll bring my own coffee!

Susie said...

Diana, I had to laugh about BJ...that is one cooking gal. Everything she cooks looks pretty tasty too. I think your toast sounds over the top , lol, no wonder your in a French toast coma girl. But I sure would like a bite of that toast. Blessings, love, xoxo, Susie

Lesley UK said...

Thank you so much for your last pic. It gave me a real giggle. I'm afraid I would probably be the culprit!
Blessings

Wild Oak Designs said...

Oh my gosh!! Looks divine....I gained enough at Thanksgiving...didn't need to know about this! Ok, well, the pie is gone....probably a good thing....

Lisa @ Texas Decor said...

Oh my word, this looks good! Would you believe we didn't have pumpkin pie on Thanksgiving??? We opted for apple and pecan instead. But don't worry, I had plenty of pumpkin spice coffee. :)

Red Rose Alley said...

That looks interesting, Diana. I love French toast and haven't had it in awhile. No more pumpkin pie, it doesn't last long in this family. :) I hope you had a nice Thanksgiving, and thank you for the e-card. I loved all the Autumn leaves swirling around.

love, ~Sheri

Launna said...

Diana, that is a really unique way of making French toast... I would love to try that out... now that I am working from home I will be able to make interesting breakfasts like this for Valentina... she will love it xox

AnnMarie aka Vintage Junkie aka NaNa said...

Wow that looks and sounds so good! Hmmm, wonder if it will work for leftover pumpkin cheesecake?! Why not?

FABBY'S LIVING said...

Oh wow sweetie, it looks fabulous! Deli, deli left over idea dear friend.
Next time I will do this cause I love making pumpkin pie. Now we went to a friends home for Tksgiving as she is American too.
I'm sure you had a great Day of Thanks, sweet friend. We so have so much to thank our Lord for.
Have a lovely week ahead.
FABBY

Missy George said...

What's leftover Pumpkin pie??? Looks good though...;)

Richella Parham said...

You might be crazy, but crazy like a fox! :)

Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Bless you and yours, Diana!

Bohemian said...

Well from one Crazy Gal to another this is absolute Brilliance! Nom-Nom!!! Thank You for Sharing this delish Breakfast Treat... alas, in our Home the Pumpkin Pie never quite gets to Leftover Status... so I will have to wait to try this when I secretly buy another one and don't tell the Fam until AFTER I've made this Inventive Breakfast! *Shhhhh... winks* ... Blessings from the Arizona Desert... Dawn... The Bohemian

Debby Ray said...

Excuse me...did you say "left over" pumpkin pie?? That doesn't happen in my house! But MAN, does this look AMAZING! I am so excited to tell you though that there is tiny sliver wrapped in foil (that hubby did not find) that I am going to try this! Thanks for the great tip!

Katie Isabella said...

Ain't NO leftover pumpkin pie here girlfriend! We eat it up. I feel as though I would love to just lay my face down in the pie and start eatin'!! That recipe looks and has to be good. I will remember the one with turkey! xoxo

Kim said...

Oh my gosh...that sounds amazing. Too bad I am a day late. That pie finally disappeared yesterday!! Rats!

Art @ Home said...

You are an evil genius. Seriously???? I wonder if sweet potato pie would work. That's all we have left!

God's Grace Overflows said...

Can you say Yummy?! Oh my...this sounds so good. I no longer have pumpkin pie and I don't think pecan pie will do this French toast any justice, so if one happens to get made, I'll definitely be trying this! ;)
Enjoy your week Diana!
Hugs!

Jann Olson said...

Yum, Yum! I really don't care for pumpkin pie, but boy does this French toast look delicious!! I've been eating a piece of left over coconut cream pie a day, :)
hugs,
Jann

Lori said...

Now that is brilliant! Last night I made potato cakes, but mixed in the left over bread stuffing to the potatoes!!! Poured gravy over the top and done, yum.

Musings from Kim K. said...

This is brilliant. I could even use pie filling with cream cheese with our pie being all gone. Love this!

At Rivercrest Cottage said...

you are BAAAADDDD as usual! I am still snickering about poor BJ being your tester. That girl needs another recipe like your poor husband needs another piece of fruit on his head while he's sleeping.

Amy at Ms. Toody Goo Shoes said...

Well, your title surely got my attention! And I can't wait to try this! I don't have any pumpkin pie on hand at the moment, so this is getting pinned!
