Pumpkin Brioche French Toast

It’s the weekend, let’s have some fun!  French toast is easy, fast and a tasty treat for a weekend morning.  Pumpkin Brioche bread makes it perfect for a fall weekend!!  Can’t find any pumpkin bread?  No worries.  Regular brioche or challah bread works just fine.  Lay your bread out the night before and this comes together quickly the next morning.  No time to lay out the night before?  Toss the bread in a 275 degree oven for 10 minutes to harden up and then start recipe.  A kid and adult pleaser!⁣
