Notes

Additions:
• Fresh strawberries (optional), chopped up with a bit of powdered sugar
• Maple syrup
• Breakfast sausage patties or links

Ingredients

  • One loaf Challah or Brioche, sliced into 1/2” pieces
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 tablespoon milk
  • 2 tablespoon coconut rum
  • Dash Cinnamon

Directions

Combine eggs, milk, coconut rum and cinnamon. Next, preheat your grill for medium direct heat (about 350 degrees). Coat the grill grates well with canola oil so the bread does not stick.

While the grill is heating up, soak your bread pieces in the egg mixture. Once the grill is heated, grill the bread until nice char marks form, about 4 minutes each side.

Meanwhile, you can grill up breakfast sausage patties or links to go with the French toast. Grill the sausage links while grilling the French toast.
Serve the French toast with diced strawberries (or fruit of your preference) and whipped cream (optional) and sausage.

Grill Shopping Tip

Think twice before buying a thicker piece of meat; a 2-inch thick steak takes four times (not twice) as long as 1-inch thick steak to cook.

Grill Cooking Tip

If you're cooking something that's been marinated, make sure to pat the item dry before it hits the grill. Any sugar in the marinade will burn.
