Coconut French Toast

CAN I JUST SAY, this Coconut French Toast is FABULOUS!!!!! It is crazy good!
If you are a coconut lover, like me...this has to go on your menu for the week.
Its punched full of coconut flavor with a hint of strawberry shortcake ...mmmmm!  
Coconut French Toast

3 eggs
3/4 c. heavy cream
2 t. coconut extract
1/4 t. vanilla
1/4 t. salt
2 c. shredded coconut
6 slices THICK HEAVY BREAD (homemade, bakery or french bread)

1 pkg. danish dessert
2 c. strawberries
whipped topping

Combine eggs, cream, coconut extract, vanilla and salt in a dish. Beat until combined. Place coconut in a pie dish. Dip both sides of bread in cream mixture, then dip both sides into coconut....press so that it will stick to the bread. Cook on a hot griddle sprayed coated with pan coating. Cook 3-4 minutes on each side or until middle of bread is no longer soft and soggy. Serve immediately or keep warm in a 200 degree oven until ready to serve.  Serve topped with strawberry sauce and whipped topping.

Strawberry Sauce:
Prepare Danish Dessert according to direction on box for "fruit sauce". When done, add sliced strawberries. Let sauce cool slightly if desired. (As you can see from my picture, I didn't wait long enough, my whipped topping melted). Pour desired amount on french toast, top with whipped topping.
