Pumpkin Bread French Toast

This is a three day recipe.  You make the pumpkin bread and let it get a  little stale; I thought that will make better french toast.  This is perfect for a Sunday Brunch.  I will be honest; I had leftover pumpkin from the pumpkin snickerdoodle cookies and didn’t know what I wanted to do with this and then I thought  pumpkin bread.  That is too plain and traditional so I said French toast.  You got to do this one with bacon.  Hope you  like it.

I bought some pumpkin bread from Gina’s Kitchen from the Manassas Farmers Markets  www.fromginaskitchen.com
