A dressed-up version of French toast has the sweet tropical flavor of pineapple. I use homemade hot fudge sauce for topping.

Instructions Checklist
  • Mix pineapple and 1 teaspoon cinnamon in a bowl. Spread each slice of bread with 1 1/2 teaspoon cream cheese. Top 2 slices with 1/4 cup pineapple mixture apiece; reserve remaining pineapple mixture. Place remaining slices of bread atop pineapple mixture and press lightly to make 2 sandwiches.

  • Whisk remaining 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, milk, egg, sugar, and vanilla extract in a shallow bowl. Lay each sandwich in milk mixture and let bread absorb mixture for a few seconds; flip and repeat.

  • Heat a nonstick skillet over medium heat, melt butter in the hot skillet, and fry sandwiches on both sides in butter until golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Top each sandwich with half the remaining pineapple mixture and drizzle 1 tablespoon hot fudge sauce over pineapple.

Delicious! I did have to use canned pineapple but I was sure to drain it well. I do have to admit that I did not bother measuring the cream cheese or pineapple and just eyeballed it. Very tasty warm and comforting...the chocolate was a nice addition at the end. This is a definite keeper YUM! Thanks for sharing.:) Read More

As written this is not a make-again for us. "Good bread" wasn't exactly specific enough - we went with Texas toast but probably should've used challah or French bread for this. I also personally didn't care for the combo of pineapple and chocolate sauce - but I did use fresh pineapple canned would have been sweeter and probably tasted better. With the bread you would normally use for French toast (if you have a regular type you use) and a strong liking for the pineapple/chocolate combo this could be quite delicious. It smelled amazing cooking! As written it just wasn't for us. Thanks for sharing! Read More

I definitely should have used better bread. I just used the regular honey wheat I had at home. Lol. The recipe came out well. Very rich but delicious! Read More
