pumpkin spiced french toast bake

Ah, ’tis the season for pumpkin spice. From lattes to linguini, the options are endless. This year I attempted homemade pumpkin spice so I always have some on hand! And odds are, you already have the ingredients in your pantry.

The first recipe? A twist on our family favorite french toast. The original recipe came from an inn in Cape Cod years ago but with a few small changes is transformed into an autumn masterpiece. It’s such a prefect brunch bake since you make it the night before and just pop it in the oven in the morning! 30 minutes later you have this Pumpkin Spiced French Toast Bake.

After almost two weeks of chest colds, head colds, and stomach bugs running rampant in our house, I am fiiiiiinally back in the kitchen! Oh, how I have missed my usual post and sharing my goodies with you all! Here in Connecticut, we are being buried by loads of snow, so what a perfect day to try out these tasty breakfast treats. While it may be easy and convenient to buy the pre-packaged buns, these are well worth the effort if you have a little extra time on one of those weekend mornings. The layers of simple dough, salty bacon, crunchy hazelnuts, and sweet, sugary bourbon icing make for the perfect dipping companion for that early cup of coffee! Here are the steps for Bacon Bourbon Cinnamon Nut Rolls.

A savory snowy day breakfast!
