Baked Coconut French Toast (Challah)


The other day I made challah with the hope that there would be enough leftover for French toast the next day.... and there was, yay! But I didn't want to make just any French toast, I wanted to change it up and make something different. I decided on coconut French toast. Delicious! I even stored some in the fridge and re-heated it and it still tasted pretty darn good. I love that it baked up so beautifully in the oven and I didn't have to cook a few at a time on the stovetop. Back in the day this wouldn't have bothered me, but now that I have a 2-year-old, a newborn, and a job (I work from home) life is getting a bit crazy busy. By the end of the day, when I'm waiting for my husband to get home from work, I go into a trance. Seriously, I just stare off into space for a while. Then he gets home and I think I literally fling the children at him so that I can have a break. Yes, literally. hehe And guess what mommy break time means? Leftover French toast! Yay!!! :)


And did I mention that this would be the perfect breakfast to share with your loved one on Valentine's Day?? Drizzle some chocolate on it maybe??
