Coconut French Toast and a Give-away!

So I have been REALLY bad about blogging this summer, I admit it but I am not ashamed...there is just too much good stuff happening! One of the best thing is a friend and I have started a little canning operation, Inappropriate Jam.  Basically we want to create slightly more exotic flavors of jam that could be used in between cake layers or as interesting ice cream mix ins or...basically not just for toast, although that's good too!
This morning SA was still sleeping like a baby and I wanted to surprise him with breakfast in bed, so this recipe was created out of what caught my eye when I opened the fridge!

Coconut French Toast with Whiskey Bitch and Fresh Blueberries
4 slices of bread
two eggs slightly whisked
1/2 tsp of cinnamon
1/4 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup shredded coconut (not sweetened)
1 tbsp butter

In a large skillet or griddle over medium heat melt the butter.  Add the vanilla and the cinnamon to the eggs and whisk until well combined.  Dip the bread in the egg mixture quickly and then sprinkle with coconut and toast in skillet until lightly browned and then flip (about two minutes) and do the same on the other side.  Top with jam of your choice (I used Whiskey Bitch) and fresh blueberries!
