Stuffed Pumpkin French Toast with Buttery Pumpkin Syrup

I made this recipe for dinner the other night . . . It felt more like dessert! I loved it . . I especially loved how buttery the syrup was and the rich-nuttiness that the pumpkin added to it! So good! A great recipe for fall!Stuffed Pumpkin French Toast with Buttery Pumpkin Syrup
Recipe by: Emily
1 loaf of bread, sliced (wheat or white)
6 eggs
2 cups of milk
8 oz Cream Cheese, room temperature
1/4 cup Pumpkin Puree
1/2 tsp Pumpkin Spice
1/2 tsp Vanilla
5-6 Tbsp Brown Sugar

1. Beat the eggs and 2 cups of milk together in a bowl with 1/4 tsp salt. Set aside.
2. Combine the cream cheese, pumpkin puree, brown sugar, pumpkin spice, vanilla, and a pinch of salt together. Spread a generous layer of cream cheese/pumpkin filling on one piece of bread and top it with another slice. Continue until all of the cream cheese mixture is gone.
3. Heat a griddle and butter lightly. Dip the stuffed bread in the egg mixture and soak on both sides. Place egg dipped bread on a hot griddle and cook until golden brown and cooked through on both sides. Serve french toast with pumpkin syrup and enjoy!

Buttery Pumpkin Syrup

1/2 cup Butter (use the real deal)
1/2 cup Heavy Cream
1/3 cup Pumpkin Puree
1 tsp Pumpkin Spice
1 tsp Vanilla
1 cup Sugar
2 Tbsp Brown Sugar
1/4 tsp Salt
1 Tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar
1/2 tsp Baking Soda

Melt the butter in a sauce pan over medium heat. Add all the remaining ingredients and bring syrup to a boil. Simmer syrup for 5-10 minutes stirring often to keep from scorching. Enjoy!

-I only cooked 1/2 of my stuffed french toast and froze the rest before it was dipped in the egg mixture. . . a decadent brunch waiting for another day . . .
