  • One loaf Challah or Brioche, sliced into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 tbsp milk
  • 2 tbsp coconut rum
  • Dash of cinnamon
  • Fresh strawberries, chopped with a bit of powdered sugar (optional)
  • Maple syrup (optional)
  • Breakfast sausage patties or links


  1. Combine eggs, milk, coconut rum and cinnamon. Next, preheat your grill for medium direct heat (about 350 degrees). Coat the grill grates well with canola oil so the bread does not stick.
  2. While the grill is heating up, soak your bread pieces in the egg mixture. Once the grill is heated, grill the bread until nice char marks form, about 4 minutes each side.
  3. Meanwhile, you can grill up breakfast sausage patties or links to go with the French toast. Grill the sausage links while grilling the French toast.
  4. Serve the French toast with diced strawberries (or fruit of your preference) and whipped cream (optional) and sausage.
  5. Watch the video on how to make Grilled Vodka Lemonade and a Grilled Peach Bellini.
