“With just a few ingredients and little effort, this recipe makes a great summer breakfast. I created it while on holidays in Maui while making french toast for breakfast. I noticed the drink mix sitting on the counter from the night before and inspiration struck. Top with sliced bananas and maple syrup.”

Original recipe yields 12 slices

Directions

  1. Whisk together the eggs, milk, and pina colada mix in a bowl. Heat a skillet over medium heat; melt butter in the skillet until the foam disappears. Soak the bread slices in the egg mixture, turning the slices over a couple of times.
  2. Gently lay the soaked bread slices into the hot skillet 2 at a time and pan-fry until the french toast is golden brown, about 2 minutes per side. Transfer cooked french toast slices to a warmed platter while you finish cooking. Top each 2-slice serving with several slices of banana to serve.

This was excellent! We don't keep pina colada mix on hand, so I opted to use a combination of coconut milk and pineapple juice for the mix...and I kept forgetting to pick up pineapple juice, so in the end, I opened a can of crushed pineapple and use some of that juice. A few of the pineapple bits poured out and I liked the result of teeny bits of fruit on the finished product. My only other change was to use a Portuguese Saloio Bread, kind of dense, chewy, tiny hint of sweetness, and that paired beautifully with the pina colada flavors, as well as being a great "French toast" bread! I did experiment by sprinkling a couple of the dipped slices of bread with some shredded coconut before pan-frying, but some pieces burned a bit, so next time I'll just have toasted coconut to offer as an additional topping. Wonderful summery breakfast idea! Thanks, laughingmagpie!

This recipe is a keeper! As a pina colada fan, I loved this and found it to be a new and exciting way to make French toast. The bananas seemed a little out of place to me and I think I would prefer garnishing it with pineapple and most definitely coconut, but hubby thought they were just fine with the bananas. I only used 6 eggs in the egg dip because 8 just seemed like a lot, but I measured everything else the same.
