If you have leftover pumpkin pie filling, but you don’t have any pie crust left or you used it to make this turkey pot pie don’t worry. You can use the filling in french toast.
This is a quick and ingenious way to use leftover pumpkin pie filling. Just dip some bread, cook it in a pan and you’re ready to serve. Your pie filling already includes milk, eggs and cinnamon – the ingredients needs for delicious French toast.
What you need to get started:
• Leftover pumpkin pie filling
• Sliced Bread
• Icing Sugar and Syrup, both optional
Also, keep on hand flat dish for the filling, fork, large non-stick skillet and spatula for flipping. If your skillet isn’t non-stick, you will need to put some oil in it before cooking.
How much French toast you’ll be able to make will depend on the amount of pie filling you have left. You can probably get about 4 slices out of each half cup of filling you have.
Dip the Toast
First, preheat your skillet to medium heat. The warmer it is when you start cooking, the better.
Now dip both sides of your bread slices into the pie filling. Because it’s thick, you may need to use a spoon to place it on some of the slices of bread.
Place on the Skillet
Cook until lightly browned on both sides of your bread.
Sprinkle with icing sugar, top with syrup and serve.
It smells and tastes heavenly!
