Pina colada French toast

    40 min

    A slightly unusual concoction, but try it and you'll love it. French bread is soaked in a mixture of pina colada mix, egg and milk, then pan-fried to perfection. Serve with sliced bananas and maple syrup. You could also serve this with ice cream for a decadent dessert.

    1. Whisk together the eggs, milk, and pina colada mix in a bowl. Heat a frying pan over medium heat; melt butter in the frying pan until the foam disappears. Soak the bread slices in the egg mixture, turning the slices over a couple of times.
    2. Gently lay the soaked bread slices into the hot frying pan 2 at a time and pan-fry until the french toast is golden brown, about 2 minutes per side. Transfer cooked french toast slices to a warmed plate while you finish cooking. Top each 2-slice serving with several slices of banana to serve.

    This was excellent! We don't keep pina colada mix on hand, so I opted to use a combination of coconut milk and pineapple juice for the mix...and I kept forgetting to pick up pineapple juice, so in the end, I opened a can of crushed pineapple and use some of that juice. A few of the pineapple bits poured out and I liked the result of teeny bits of fruit on the finished product. My only other change was to use a Portuguese Saloio Bread, kind of dense, chewy, tiny hint of sweetness, and that paired beautifully with the pina colada flavors, as well as being a great "French toast" bread! I did experiment by sprinkling a couple of the dipped slices of bread with some shredded coconut before pan-frying, but some pieces burned a bit, so next time I'll just have toasted coconut to offer as an additional topping. Wonderful summery breakfast idea! Thanks, laughingmagpie!  -  30 May 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This recipe is a keeper! As a pina colada fan, I loved this and found it to be a new and exciting way to make French toast. The bananas seemed a little out of place to me and I think I would prefer garnishing it with pineapple and most definitely coconut, but hubby thought they were just fine with the bananas. I only used 6 eggs in the egg dip because 8 just seemed like a lot, but I measured everything else the same.  -  27 Apr 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
