Coconut Pie Toast
Tastes just like baked coconut pie! Sliced bread is topped with a homemade coconut pie filling and baked. Not too sweet so it's perfect for breakfast. It's the BEST stuff since... well, sliced bread!
- 1 stick (1/2 c) butter, melted (I used salted)
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup flaked coconut
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 12 slices bread (I used Dollar Tree wheat bread)
Preheat oven to 350 F. Line a large cookie sheet or jellyroll pan with foil for easy cleanup. Arrange bread on pan. Set aside.
Cut the butter in thin slices and place in a small bowl; microwave for about 15 seconds, or just until melted. Set aside.
In a mixing bowl, whisk the egg; add the sugar, coconut, vanilla, and melted butter, stirring until well combined. Spread mixture on tops of bread slices.
Bake for 15-20 minutes, or just until lightly browned. Serve warm with a glass of cold milk or hot, freshly brewed coffee. Scrumptious too at room temperature with a dollop of whipped cream!!
((I only made half the recipe. Wish now I'd made all of it, it was that good!))
