If you have a picky eater like my Munchkin, then you probably understand how hard it is to convince his/her strong willed mind to try new fruits/veggies. We have tried just about EVERYTHING to get Munchkin to try 1-2 bites of foods, but so far Munchkin has not expanded the list of “likes” very much. The short list of fruits/veggies on the “like” list include: Bananas, Applesauce, and Carrots. Which means that we are now “hiding” fruit/veggies in foods. I first got the idea from a cookbook that my cousin gave me called Deceptively Delicious.

I modified the recipe in this cookbook for French Toast to fit my family’s preferences and came up with this. 🙂

1. First, you will need a place a griddle (or frying pan) on the stovetop on medium heat. Then, I use 4 tablespoons of pumpkin puree that I buy and freeze in 2 Tbsp servings (shown above). If using frozen pumpkin puree, place in microwave to soften.

2. Once softened, smash the pumpkin puree. Now you are ready for the other ingredients!

3. Add six eggs and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon to the pumpkin puree and whisk until smooth. Dip bread (I use Homemade Bread) in the mixture for about 5 seconds on each side and place on griddle.

4. Let cook 2-3 minutes, then flip!

5. Let cook 2-3 minutes on the other side.

6. Add butter, powdered sugar, fruit, syrup, honey — whatever you like! Doesn’t this look delicious?!?

So….like many of you out there, I have fallen in LOVE with Pinterest! One day while browsing I found this recipe and finally got a chance to try to out this week! (For the recipe, go to Quick-Dish)

If you have ever tried ideas that you found on Pinterest, you may be like me and find that sometimes you end up with a completely different outcome than what you saw! LOL 😄 That was not the case with this recipe! Here is what mine looked like (I think it’s almost identical to the original!):

It was delicious and was entirely devoured in one evening by just 4 adults and 4 kids. Next time I make it, I am going to make a few changes so be sure to stop back for my updated version!!
