1 (12-ounce) loaf French bread, cut into 15 slices
10 (1/4-inch-thick) slices peeled pineapple
1/2 cup flaked sweetened coconut
How to Make It
Preheat oven to 200°. Place a baking sheet in the oven.
Combine coconut milk, sugar, fat-free milk, and eggs in a shallow dish, stirring with a whisk. Working in batches, dip bread in the milk mixture, and let stand for 1 minute on each side.
Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, and coat pan with cooking spray. Add 5 coated bread slices to pan, and cook for 2 minutes on each side or until browned. Place on warm pan in oven to keep warm. Repeat procedure in batches with cooking spray, remaining slices, and milk mixture.
Heat a grill pan over medium-high heat. Add pineapple, and grill for 2 minutes on each side or until well marked. Chop pineapple. Place 3 slices of French toast on each of 5 plates, and divide the pineapple among servings. Top with coconut.
I just made this recipe this morning and it was so good! The whole family loved it. I did make one mistake though....I cut up the whole pineapple then realized the recipe called for it to be cut into spears and grilled. Next time I will be sure to do this, grilled pineapple is soooo good. I can't believe I skipped that step!
I'm used to having syrup or something juicy on my French toast, but this was still delicious! I ran out of egg mixture while soaking the last 5 pieces, so I think only soaking them for 1 min. total (30 sec. each side) would be plenty.
This was really good! Used a 1lb loaf of bread and should of doubled the egg mixture as i did 1 1/2 times to make for the difference, but still not enough egg for all the bread...very very good! And super fast!
Made this for my in-laws san pineapple because of an allergy and with splenda instead of sugar... they raved about it. Today I am trying with real sugar (bonus!) and the grilled pineapple.... think bacon will go nicely with this dish although maybe not with my diet.. but who cares! This french toast is AWESOME! I might have a hard time ever making plain ole french toast again!
