Grilled Coconut Rum French Toast
Leave it to Robyn Medlin-Lindars of Grillgrrrl.com to take Mother’s Day brunch to a whole ‘nother level by taking classic French toast and firing it up on the grill!
• Fresh strawberries (optional), chopped up with a bit of powdered sugar
• Maple syrup
• Breakfast sausage patties or links
- One loaf Challah or Brioche, sliced into 1/2” pieces
- 4 eggs
- 2 Tablespoons milk
- 2 Tablespoons coconut rum
- Dash Cinnamon
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.
