DH and I enjoyed this version of French toast for breakfast. I had to use fresh pineapple chunks so I prepared it a little differently. I put the hot pieces of pineapple in my baking dish (lined with parchment paper) poured the butter,sugar and juice mixture over the pineapple, I added a few macadamia nuts and then placed the dipped bread slices on top. I used multigrain bread to replace the French bread, it tasted great! When it was baked I flipped the whole thing over onto a serving dish and removed the paper, it worked perfectly! I used the remaining egg mixture to dip additional bread slices and fried them in butter until golden, I will freeze them for another day. Served with crispy bacon; what a great combination of flavours, salty bacon, sweet sauce and tart pineapple and a hint of cinnamon!! I will definitely make this again. Thanks Bliss!
