Savory Pumpkin French Toast
Yield 8 servings
Perfect for the Holiday and Fall Season! The recipe is from Chef Mitch Michelle Peace at the Brewery Gulch Inn. We did not try this at the BG Inn and wish we had. It's a guest favorite! Everything on the menu looked incredible and it was hard to choose. The dishes we did try were exceptional and we believe this will be nothing short of that. We just received this from Chef Peace and will make it soon. We'll keep you posted on how it goes. Until then, feel free to try this recipe out and let us know your thoughts.
