Pumpkin French Toast Bake

Pumpkin French Toast Bake

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup Heinen’s Milk
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
  • 3 large Heinen’s Eggs
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 (12-count) package King’s Hawaiian Original Hawaiian Sweet Dinner Rolls, cubed

For the cream cheese filling:

  • 8 ounces Heinen’s Cream Cheese, at room temperature
  • 1/3 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

For the crumb topping:

  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 cup Heinen’s Unsalted Butter, cut into cubes
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans
  • 2 tablespoons confectioners' sugar

Instructions

In the 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 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.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

To make the crumb topping, combine flour, sugar and nutmeg 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. Sprinkle the crumb topping evenly over the bread cubes.

Place into oven and bake for 35-45 minutes, or until golden brown.

Serve immediately, sprinkled with pecans and confectioners’ sugar, if desired.

By Heinen's Grocery Store
In 1929, Joe Heinen opened the doors of a small butcher shop on the east side of Cleveland, Ohio, aiming to establish himself as the city’s purveyor of quality meats. As customers came into Heinen’s new shop for their meat purchases, they began asking him to carry groceries as well. Joe added homemade peanut butter, pickles and donuts and by 1933, business had grown enough to include a line of produce and canned goods. Heinen’s Grocery Store was born.
