Pumpkin Spice Monte Cristo


  • 1 package Follow Your Heart Dairy-Free Smoked Gouda Slices
  • 1 package vegan bacon
  • ¼ cup Follow Your Heart VeganEgg
  • 1 cup cold plain unsweetened almond or soy milk
  • 2-4 tbsp pumpkin pie spice (to desired taste)
  • 3 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • ½ tbsp ground cinnamon
  • 3 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • Powdered sugar as needed
  • French bread, sliced
  • Berry Jam (whatever flavor you prefer, we used black currant jam)
  • Vegan butter as needed


  1. In a large bowl whisk together your vegan egg, cold milk, pumpkin pie spice, maple syrup, vanilla extract, salt, cinnamon, and brown sugar until well combined. Allow to sit for about 5 minutes to slightly thicken.
  2. Cut your French bread into slices and dip them into the batter and hold over the bowl to drain off the excess.
  3. Place the coated French toast slices into a preheated pan (over medium-high heat) with enough melted butter to coat the bottom.
  4. Cook each side for about 2-3 minutes until golden brown.
  5. Cook your vegan bacon according to package instructions.
  6. Once your French toast is ready, remove it from the pan and place onto a baking sheet.
  7. Place 1-2 slices of your smoked gouda cheese on each slice of bread, and quickly place under the broiler to melt. Once melted, add in your bacon and fold up your sandwiches.
  8. Sprinkle powdered sugar over the top and serve with your berry jam. Can also serve with extra maple syrup!
