Hi everyone!

It’s been a fun week so far.  My first house guest has been helping me get ready for Thanksgiving and we’ve been doing a little exploring of Asheville as well.  I’m hoping we make it over to the Biltmore today.  Most of the rest of the clan arrives tomorrow or Thursday.  Thanksgiving has turned into a week long event in my house!

Because family is in town for several days I need to feed everyone for more than just Thanksgiving.  I make my Crock Pot Vegetarian Breakfast Casserole every year but I thought it would be fun to add another one to the mix.  After some testing I came up with this Healthier Crock Pot Pumpkin French Toast.

It’s syrup drizzled, pumpkin-y breakfast goodness.

My version is a bit healthier because it uses whole wheat bread, coconut sugar and 1% milk instead of cream.

The pumpkin added to the custard not only tastes good but has all kinds of health benefits and antioxidants.

The casserole cooks while you sleep and you wake up to an amazing pumpkin-y smelling house and one super tasty breakfast everyone will rave about.

Bonus points because you will not have to wake up super early and scramble to get it together.   Anyone who’s has house guest is nodding their head right now… RIGHT?

Serve this with your favorite syrup and a side of fruit!  Just expect it to disappear super fast.  That smell will tempt anyone and everyone in the house.

Enjoy.

    WOAH. Julie, this is such a blessing. I’m thinking, breakfast for tomorrow. I wanted to make something special for Mama’s Birthday tomorrow, but I’m kind of tired, but this is SO PERFECT. <3

    Mmm can I come over for breakfast? This is the first year I’m planning a breakfast for Thanksgiving, actually. It’s nothing crazy, just hash brown casserole, some eggs, and homemade cinnamon rols. I figure I should fancy it up rather than a bowl of cereal, haha!

    Um, yes. I bet this smells and tastes incredible! If I prep it before we leave, do you think it will be cooked when we return? It’ll have 5 days, lol
