baked coconut french toast

A few weeks ago I spent the weekend at my parents house. While the original purpose was to make sure that my brother ate all of his meals and walk Ruby May ... it ended up also being filled with tons of time in front of the tree. The tree is in very close proximity to a great fireplace... so I really won the weekend lottery.

We spent most of the weekend feeding wood into the fire, watching Bob's Burgers on Netflix, and planning the next meal. For Saturday dinner, my brother requested his favorite pizza... but he had no specific asks for breakfast outside of a trip to Dunkin Donuts at some point in the day. So on Sunday morning, I pulled together a quick baked french toast. The twist? I used coconut milk instead of regular milk. It completely changes the flavor profile but not in a bad way at all.

How it goes down.
(Step 1) Place bread cubes in a greased 9 x 9 baking dish.
(Step 2) In a large bowl, whisk the eggs, milk, sugar, vanilla and salt. Pour over bread.
(Step 3) Combine the butter, brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg. Sprinkle/Pour over the top.
(Step 4) Cover and bake at 350° for 45-50 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Let stand for 5 minutes.
