Baked Pumpkin Cream Cheese French Toast

Posted on
 Fall? Hello, Fall? Where are you?! Why are you torturing me with 90 degrees still? It’s not very nice when I want to bake all of these lezat fall dishes. So I bake them anyway:)
 This casserole will change breakfast for you. Making breakfast before bed and then just popping it in the panggangan in the morning…YES PLEASE! I’m always worried that these overnight casseroles will be to wet and gooey for me. Not the case AT ALL. This bakes up so firm and delicious.
And aren’t pumpkin and cream cheese married? They are in my book. They belong together. And they’re so happy together. If you’re looking for the perfect Fall breakfast look no further!
3/4 cup milk
1/2 cup pumpkin puree
3 eggs
2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup brown sugar, packed
1 (12-count) package Kings Hawaiian Sweet Dinner Rolls, cubed
  
For the crumb topping
1/4 cup flour
1/4 cup brown sugar, packed
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 cup butter, cut into cubes
1/4 cup chopped pecans (Optional. I didn’t have them this time so I left them out)
2 tablespoons powdered sugar
  
For the cream cheese filling
8 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
1/3 cup powdered sugar
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
 In bowl of an electric mixer fitted with paddle attachment, beat cream cheese, sugar and cinnamon on medium speed until light and fluffy, approximately 2-3 minutes; set aside.
In a large glass measuring cup or another bowl, whisk together milk, pumpkin puree, eggs, pumpkin pie spice, brown sugar and vanilla. Lightly coat a 9×13 baking dish with nonstick spray. Place a layer of bread cubes evenly into the baking dish. Pour half of the pumpkin puree mixture evenly over the top. Spread cream cheese filling in an even layer. Top with remaining bread cubes and pumpkin puree mixture to completely cover the filling. Cover and place in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours or overnight.
To make the crumb topping, combine flour, sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl. Add cold butter and toss to coat, using your fingers to work the butter into the dry ingredients until it resembles coarse crumbs. You can also do this in a food processor or with a fork or pastry cutter. Place the crumb topping in the fridge until ready to bake NOT on top of the casserole, but in a separate bowl. Sprinkle the crumb topping evenly over casserole right before putting into the oven.
Preheat panggangan to 350 degrees. Place into panggangan and bake for 35-45 minutes, or until golden brown and cooked all the way through. Serve immediately, sprinkled with pecans and powdered sugar, if desired.
Enjoy!!

Best Restaurants in America If you eat out in the U.S.A. and want the best dining experiences possible, this guide is for you What makes a good restaurant a “best”? Food that’s better than just good, of course. A dining room and a level of service that suit the quality of what’s on the plate. A good wine list (which doesn’t always mean an encyclopedic one), good beers and/or cocktails where appropriate. And then the less easily quantifiable stuff: personality, imagination (or intelligent commitment to a lack of same), consistency. 101 Best Restaurants in America (Gallery) When we were a young website, way back in 2011, we drew up our first 101 ranking ourselves, making a list of the places where we, The Daily Meal’s editors, liked to eat. Taking into consideration our mood, our budget, and where we happened to be when we get hungry, how would we vote, we asked ourselves — not only with our critical faculties but with our mouths and our wallets? Where would we send friends? Where would we want to dine if we had one night in this city or that? By this method, we ended up with a shortlist of 150 places. Then we argued, advocated, and cajoled each other on behalf of restaurants ranging from old-fashioned to avant-garde, ultra-casual to super-fancy. Finally, we invited an illustrious panel of judges (restaurant critics, food and lifestyle writers, and bloggers) from across America to help order restaurants via an anonymous survey and tallied results to assemble a ranked list. Upstairs, the simple Scandinavian-style dining room is kitted out with tables that look like tangled tree trunks, carved by Tom senior. The ingredient-led 12-course tasting menu is constantly changing (you might spot one of the chefs picking a final herb flourish outside minutes before it hits your plate). Starters could include a mouthful of smoked eel and apple, or an exploding dumpling of ox cheek and lovage. A crapaudine beetroot slow-cooked in beef fat is meaty in texture as well as flavour, and local lamb is paired with turnip and mint. Even the bread with sour butter is sensational. Afterwards you’ll be grateful for the walk through the village to a pretty rose-covered house where some of the nine bedrooms have antique oak four-posters and copper bateau baths. Wake to the sound of cows mooing in the next field and head back to the inn for a simple breakfast of sheep’s yogurt with fresh berry compote and house granola or toasted brioche heaped with mushrooms and a duck egg. Unsurprisingly, the most talked about restaurant in Yorkshire is often full, so book it quick. By Tabitha Joyce.
