I wanted french toast, but the normal kind. I hadn’t made stuffed french toast in a long time, so that sounded really delicious. However, I didn’t want to make my usual stuffed french toast with berries and cream cheese. I looked around the refrigerator to see what i could find. Lo and behold – pineapple tidbits and leftover coconut cream. Now we’re cooking!!
Pineapple Coconut Cream Stuffed French Toast
Ingredients (serves 4):
8 slices of your favorite bread
8 Tablespoons coconut cream
1 cup pineapple tidbits, drained
2 tsp. milk
1 1/2 tsp. butter
more coconut cream, as desired
Spread each slice of bread with 1 Tablespoon of coconut cream.
Put 1/4 cup of pineapple tidbits on 4 slices of bread, then top with another slice. Squish together a little so they stay stuck.
On a small plated, beat the egg with the milk.
Melt butter in a small frying pan over medium heat.
Dip each side of “sandwich” into egg mixture.
Cook for approximately 3 minutes per side, or until golden brown (longer if you use thicker bread).
Serve topped with coconut syrup and more coconut cream.
