Make-Ahead Pumpkin Pie French Toast
This recipe was shared by Jennifer Yandle of Indian Trail, North Carolina...thanks, Jennifer! She writes, "I combined several different French toast recipes to suit my family’s tastes. They love anything with pumpkin, so the pumpkin pie spice was a must. It’s a great Sunday morning breakfast…it can bake while you get ready for church. It’s also super-easy for husbands to whip up so Mom can sleep in just a bit on Saturday morning!"
