Butternut Squash French Toast

1 loaf of Brioche

6 eggs, beaten

1 cup of cooked butternut squash, pureed

1/4 cup heavy cream

1/3 cup orange juice

1 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp nutmeg

2 Tbs maple syrup

2 Tbs brown sugar

Butter as needed

Cut bread into 1 inch slices and set aside. In a large bowl whisk together all remaining ingredients except for the butter.

Heat a griddle or non stick pan over medium heat.

Place sliced bread into egg mixture one or two pieces at a time and allow bread to soak up some of the mixture.

Once pan is hot, add a small amount of butter to insure that the soaked bread does not stick. Place prepared slices of bread onto the griddle or pan and allow to brown on both sides.

*Pureed pumpkin can be substituted for butternut squash!
