Fall is my favorite time of year, the weather gets more mild, Halloween is approaching and Trader Joe’s gets tons of pumpkin goodies! Every year I love trying out all the Trader Joe’s pumpkin products, and one of  my favorite items is the Pumpkin Brioche Twist, it’s amazing for French Toast – I wanted to give my French Toast an upgrade today by making a crunchy version, so I used Trader Joe’s Maple Pecan Clusters Cereal as the coating.  Not only does the cereal give it a great crunchy texture, it also adds a wonderful flavor.  This Crunchy Pumpkin French Toast so delicious and such a treat, you could even serve it as a dessert.

Trader Joe’s Crunchy Pumpkin French Toast Recipe

  • Prep time: 10 minutes
  • Cook time: 15 minutes
  • Serves: 6

Ingredients

  • 6 Slices Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Brioche Twist
  • 2 Cups Trader Joe’s Maple Pecan Clusters Cereal, crushed into coarse crumbs
  • 3 Large Eggs
  • ½ Cup Half & Half or Cream
  • 2 Tablespoons Salted Butter, divided
  • 1 Tablespoon Sugar
  • Pinch of Salt

Method

  • 1)

    Pre-heat your oven to 375°F and have a baking sheet covered with parchment or a silpat. Put the crushed cereal into a large bowl or plate. In a large bowl, add 3 Large Eggs, ½ Cup Half & Half, 1 Tablespoon Granulated Sugar, Pinch of Salt and whisk very well until eggs are completely combined (you shouldn’t see any egg whites).

  • 2)

    Dip each piece of brioche into the egg mixture for 2 seconds on each side, then coat well with crushed cereal, gently press the cereal into the brioche to get it to adhere.

  • 3)

    Use medium-high heat and large non-stick skillet. Add 1 Tablespoon of Salted Butter, once the pan is hot cook 3 slices at once, about 1-2 minutes per side or until it’s lightly golden, place onto the baking sheet. Add the another 1 Tablespoon of Butter to pan again and cook the last 3 slices, these may brown quicker since the pan will be hotter, place them onto the baking sheet. Put the pan into the pre-heated oven for 5 minutes. Drizzle on some warm Trader Joe’s Fleur de Sel Caramel Sauce or Maple, top with whipped cream and a sprinkle of Pumpkin Pie Spice. Enjoy!
