Before we jump head first into the land of all things peppermint, gingerbread, and eggnog flavored, I have one last pumpkin recipe to share with you all for the fall season. (I swear, this is the last one!) And this one is perfect if you happen to have a couple of leftover rolls or some bread from that Thanksgiving dinner. ;) It is a super quick and easy to make Pumpkin Pecan French Toast for One! 

Maybe you had a lot of guests over for that big dinner. Maybe you need a little quiet time to yourself after the hustle & bustle of those Black Friday sales. Maybe you need to get up just a bit earlier than everyone else this holiday weekend to carve out a little time for yourself because that is the only me time that you are going to get until Monday. But regardless of why you are looking to get a little alone time one morning this weekend, this french toast in a mug should definitely join you. In less than 8 minutes, you can be enjoying this moist pumpkin french toast with crunchy pecans. Drizzle a little maple syrup over top, and it's heaven, my friends...
