Egg White Recipe of the Day - Hawaiian Sundae Pie

Well, winter is here! At least in our neck of the woods. Which means lots of rain, overcast skies and just a peak of sunshine here and there. Wouldn't a trip to Hawaii right about now be great? Unfortunately not do-able for most of us ... so why not bring a little tropical paradise into your home this weekend? Turn up the heat and indulge in an eggxotic Hawaiian Sundae Pie! This is our pick for recipe of the day. And, did we mention that it is eggcellent?! :-) Have a happy weekend!

2 tablespoons flaked sweetened coconut, toasted
2 tablespoons fresh pineapple chunks (optional)

speaking of 'hawaiian' recipes -- one of my families all time favorites is hawaiian french toast. we use the sweet hawaiian rolls, and make the french toast batter from:

egg whites
fat-free milk
cinnamin and sugar

slice the rolls in half, dip in batter and fry in a bit of oil. or, if we are feeling the need to not use oil, we throw them on the george foreman grill. yum!
