Pumpkin French Toast with Maple Apple Sausage

Today we are having a glorious Fall morning with crisp temps in the low 40's and I see that Colorado has their first snow.  I made my family a good Fall breakfast.
 For the pumpkin French toast, crack 2 eggs into a large bowl.  Add 1/4 cup of milk.

 Add 1 tsp. of vanilla extract, 1/2 tsp. cinnamon, 1/4 tsp. nutmeg and 2 T. of brown sugar.  Whisk this together.

 Add 1/3 C. of pumpkin puree.

 Whisk until smooth.

 I used cinnamon bread which I baked the other day.  You can use any kind of bread you like.

 Dip the bread in the pumpkin mix for a minute or two.  Then place in a skillet with some melted butter and cook over medium heat until the toast begins to brown.

 This recipe makes about 8 pieces.

 This time of year, our local stores all offer their maple, apple sausages for sale.  Everyone has their own recipe. You can only get these for a few months but they are wonderful.  The are made with chunks of apple and local maple syrup.

Sorry for all the glare that is on my photos.  This is the culprit.  I have horrible lighting in my kitchen for photography.  I hope you are having good Fall weather if it is Fall where you live!
