French Toast Pockets

This recipe takes French Toast to a new and nirvanic level. My kids aren't crazy about coconut, so I leave it out, but I have seen adults (and other people's children) just inhale these!

    What a decadent, company quality breakfast! And easy to make too! Rather than thick white bread, I used two slices of regular white bread for each piece--a sandwich rather than a pocket--this worked just fine. Left out the pecans due to an allergy. Without the nuts, I found it a bit too sweet--next time I'll cut back on the sugar. I felt the coconut added more texture than taste--something i'm likely to use if I have it and not worry if I don't. Having the coating was different and neat! Thanks for a winner Mirj!
