Fall is in the air and pumpkins are everywhere! Pumpkin decor is lining the store shelves, and pumpkin-flavored foods and drinks are in every aisle of the grocery store and in every restaurant. It’s a booming business, and consumers are loving it!

I am not one of those people who obsess over all things pumpkin flavored. I prefer just a hint of pumpkin flavoring with minimal spice, but it seems like most things are more heavily flavored. When I can’t find what I want, sometimes it’s just easier to make it myself!
French Toast is one of our favorite breakfast foods, so I came up with a delicious pumpkin french toast bake with a pumpkin cream cheese glaze, inspired by the pumpkin bagels and pumpkin cream cheese that Bruegger’s Bagels is currently offering through Thanksgiving. Both are lightly flavored, which is exactly what I like. The end result is delicious pumpkin french toast that tastes just like a freshly baked pumpkin roll!
