Caramelized pineapple french toast

On Sunday David wasn't feeling too hot, so I decided to make a combination of his favorite foods: pineapple and french toast. I went searching in our pantry for some different things, and voila! I came up with a scrumptious variation of french toast that we will continue to make for years to come! 

Caramelized Pineapple French Toast

French toast batter

4 eggs
1 tsp cinnamon
3 Tb milk
1 tsp honey

Mix all of them together and refrigerate until you are ready to dip and fry! You can use any kind of bread, we used a 9 grain honey oat that worked great! 

Caramel topping

2 cups fresh pineapple 
3 Tb honey
2 Tb white sugar
4 Tb brown sugar
2 Tb butter
1 tsp vanilla
1 Tb cream (or half and half) 

On the stove top add the butter, honey and pineapple and let it get warm. Once it starts bubbling, add the sugars, vanilla and cream-stir constantly and don't let it burn. It will boil and turn a light brown and smell delicious!!! Turn down the heat and let it simmer-it will get really gooey and when your french toast is ready-just add it to the top!! It is a wonderful-citrus and caramely twist to a classic breakfast meal. Enjoy!
