I have a little secret to share.. It might change our relationship.. If so I totally understand..

Are you ready? 

I'm not very good about making breakfast. I'm sure you are all totally in shock.. I know say what? That's not to say I can't do it. Mornings just take me forever to get going, so Colt usually steps up to the plate taking one for the team when it comes to making breakfast on the weekends.

It's why I love this Pumpkin French Toast Casserole so much! All the prep work can be done the night before so all I have to do is heat the oven, while making crumb topping, and sip coffee while it bakes! It also helps it makes the house smell absolutely AMAZING! 

Did I tell you it has a crunchy crumb topping similar to coffeecake that puts it over the edge? The combination is like heaven for a pumpkin crumb topping lover like myself!  

Pumpkin French Toast Casseroles one of those secret recipes in my arsenal I use around the holidays when we need time in the morning to be fixing other food or spending time with the family. It makes the perfect start to Thanksgiving, Christmas morning, or a lazy weekend breakfast.

  1. This looks delicious. If I wanted to use pumpkin pie spice instead of the other spices, how much would I use?
