In a large mixing bowl, whisk eggs, buttermilk, pumpkin puree, vanilla, pumpkin pie spice, and a pinch of salt. Place individual Thomas Cinnamon Swirl Bread slices into pumpkin mixture and let soak for 15-20 seconds.

In a large nonstick skillet over medium-low heat, melt 2 tbsp butter. Cook 2 slices of bread at a time until golden, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Repeat to cook all slices and keep warm.

In the same pan, add in 3 tbsp of butter, add the sliced bananas and sauté until golden brown. Remove pan from heat and, safely & slowly, add the rum. Small flames will appear. Place the pan back onto the burner, allow for alcohol to burn off, and add your cinnamon and brown sugar. Mix well and pour over french toast. Enjoy!
