Tropical Coconut Stuffed French Toast
Stuffed with an orange-flavored cream cheese filling and rolled in toasty coconut, this french toast will make you feel like you took a trip to the tropics!
Servings 6 servings
- 4 large eggs
- 3/4 cup coconut milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 4 oz cream cheese softened
- 1/2 cup orange marmalade
- 1 cup shredded sweetened coconut
- 12 slices day-old bread
- Maple syrup strawberries and/or other fruit for serving
In a large shallow bowl, whisk eggs, milk, and vanilla until smooth. Set aside.
Place cream cheese and marmalade in a small bowl. With an electric mixer, beat on medium speed until smooth and creamy. Divide cream cheese mixture between 6 slices of bread and generously spread on one side. Top slices with remaining bread to form a sandwich.
Preheat a griddle OR non-stick skillet to medium-high heat. Dip "sandwiches" in egg-milk mixture and roll both sides in shredded coconut. Cook french toast in batches on preheated skillet 2 minutes on each side, or until golden.
Cut french toast sandwiches in half and serve immediately warm with maple syrup and fruit.
