- 3 large eggs
- 1 cup light coconut milk
- ½ cup sweetened flake coconut
- ¼ cup non-fat milk
- ¼ cup sugar
- 10 slices of skinless pineapple, each ¼-inch thick
- 1 12-ounce loaf of French bread, cut to make 15 slices
- Cooking spray
- Shallow bowl or pan
- Grill pan
- Baking sheet
Step 1: Go sparingly with the charcoal briquettes and spread them in a single layer, with no briquettes touching each other. Spray a clean grill grate with the cooking spray and heat the grill to medium heat.
Step 2: Whisk to combine and stir the non-fat milk, coconut milk, eggs, and sugar in a shallow bowl or pan.
Step 3: Dip a slice of bread into the mixture so both sides are covered and allow it to soak for 1 minute. Place the bread on a baking sheet. Repeat for each piece of bread.
Step 4: Put the bread slices on the grill grates and check after 2 minutes of cooking. To prevent the bread from ripping, use a spatula instead of tongs. When the surface of the bread no longer appears wet and is golden-brown, flip the slice and cook until done on the other side. Move slices to an upper grill rack or put them on a clean baking sheet in a warm oven once they are cooked on both sides.
Step 5: Adjust grill heat to medium-high and heat the grill pan. Add the pineapple slices and grill until marks appear, approximately 2 minutes per side. Remove the pineapple from the grill and chop it into smaller pieces.
Step 6: Add several pineapple pieces to each serving of French toast and top with some flake coconut. Serve with syrup and butter, if desired.
