    A mix of tropical fruits and nuts to serve with your favorite eggs and thickly sliced toasted brioche or multigrain bread. Another great recipe from my new favorite casserole cookbook.

      Wow--this is incredible!! The fruit and nut flavors are fabulous together! I scaled the recipe down to 2 servings; used more cherries (1/3 cup of quartered cherries), less coconut (1/8 cup of unsweetened flaked coconut), 1/4 teaspoon of almond extract (we didn't have any Amaretto--but I'll try to get some for next time), and chopped macadamia nuts. And, because it was too hot to turn on the oven, I didn't bake it. What a forgiving recipe--it turned out great anyway! This one is definitely a keeper! Thanks for posting, Lauralie41!!

      Except for the fact that I had to use canned pineapple, the recipe was followed & very much enjoyed ~ Now I'm waiting impatiently for a fresh pineapple which will make it even more special! ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL ~ Thanks for sharing it! [Tagged, made & reviewed for one of my Vegetarian groupmates in the Vegetarian/Vegan Recipe Swap #6]

      Wonderful!! I technically didn't make it, DH did on Mother's Day...So you can bet recipe was followed step by step! (I'm pretty sure there were at least a 1/2 cup nuts left...after cook kept coming out of kitchen with mouthful! lol) The only change I would add the banana after baking. DH served this with waffles for breakfast. YUMMY! Thank you Lori!!
