An easy entertaining breakfast or brunchrecipe for Pumpkin Cheesecake French Toast Casserole. Assemble the night before and just bake the next morning!
I’m not what you would call a manly man. It’s okay, no need for sympathetic comments below to make me feel better. I’m proud and content with my ownership of just an IKEA tool set. It get the job done… most of the time.
Who am I kidding. I need to rely on my awesome friends for a heck of a lot when it comes to house projects. This past weekend my man Tommy, who also happens to be an electrician, came over to help us out big time. We installed (he installed, I pathetically tried to help) high hat lights in our master bedroom and our music studio/office.
You have no idea how unbelievably hot and gross it is to crawl around an attic. Holy crap if that’s what hot yoga is like, I’m out. I have a way new appreciation for you electricians out there.
And we are SO happy to finally have some lights upstairs. Before this, there was nothing except a hall light and the bathroom lights. But then Tommy said, let there be light. And there was light. And it was good.
You know what I made right before Tommy came over? This Pumpkin Cheesecake French Toast Casserole. Tommy works best on a fully stomach 😉
And so folks, here we go. My 2nd ever pumpkin recipe.
Youz guyz seems to like my Baked Pumpkin Pie Donuts, so I figured aw heck, let’s try another pumpkin breakfast on for size. Especially since I bought one of those big ole cans of pumpkin puree and I didn’t want it to go to waste.
So let’s talk about this pumpkin cheesecake breakfast goodness.
You’ve got 2 layers of pumpkin french toast with sweetened cream cheese slam packed in the middle. A little brown sugar pumpkin-spiced struesel on top.
And then, just because we’re worth it come breakfast time, a litle maple pumpkin spice glaze.
This is not your average weekday type of breakfast. It’s a treat yourself with something special weekend type of goodness. And it really perfect for easy entertaining. Assemble everything the night before, then just pop it in the oven to bake up the next morning. Boom.
Did you catch all that goodness? That’s like a movie starring ScarlettJohansson, Mila Kunis, Kaley Cuoco, and Kate Upton.
Oh sorry, for all you ladies… a movie starring Bradley Cooper, George Clooney, Channing Tatum, Ryan Renyolds, and Ryan Gosling… with a sountrack by Adam Levine.
