Pumpkin french toast with Duerden’s

Midday Sponsored

Everyone loves pumpkin spice in the fall. Todd Hall from Duerden’s joined us in the kitchen Thursday with a recipe the kids can take part in for Saturday breakfast: Pumpkin french toast!

Todd Hall whipped up the recipe using a convection oven.

“Convection is going to make just about everything better. Instead of cooking form the bottom up, we cook from the outside in. This is something we offer in a lot of ranges and wall ovens at a lot of price points,” he said.

Todd Hall said Duerden’s is kicking off their “Black Friday” sales this weekend, so people can upgrade their kitchens before the family comes to town for the holiday.

You can get up to $1200 in rebates from GE on qualifying GE profile package and up the 15% back on Bosch packages, so it’s a great time to try things out and save money but still have things delivered prior to Thanksgiving.

At Duerden’s you can try everything out before you buy!
