Coconut French Toast / Sweet and Spicy Sausages from the Mooring

  • 1 loaf good Italian or French bread, thickly sliced
  • 3 lg eggs
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp coconut extract
  • 1 cup unsweetened coconut milk (about half a can)
  • 1 3/4 cups milk
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 4 tblsp cold butter, cut into chunks
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut
  • 1/3 cup chopped pecans (optional)

Spray a 10×14 inch baking dish with cooking spray. Fit bread slices into pan, not leaving too much room between slices.

Beat eggs, sugar, extract and milks together. Ladle mixture over bread in pan, making sure that each slice is soaked. Cover with foil and refrigerate overnight.

Mix together flour and brown sugar; cut in butter until mixture resembles peas. Stir in coconut and nuts. Top bread slices with the crumb mixture.

Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees for about 45 minutes, or until topping browns and edges of bread are beginning to crisp.

Makes 10-12 servings

sausages

  • ½ cup brown sugar, firmly packed
  • 2 tblsp  chili powder
  • 1 ½ tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • ½ tsp ground cardamom
  • ¼ tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 tsp anise seeds
  • Breakfast sausage links, thawed if frozen

Mix the sugar and spices together and store in an airtight container.

When you’re ready to serve the sausage, roll the links in the sugar and spice mixture; arrange in a baking dish and bake in a preheated 350-400 degree oven for 10 or 15 minutes,  or until cooked through (if fresh) and nicely browned, turning halfway through baking time so they brown evenly.
