PREHEAT oven to 350° F. Grease a 2-quart casserole or 8-inch-square baking dish.

DISSOLVE brown sugar in hot water in a medium bowl. Mix in Coffee-mate natural bliss Creamer and evaporated milk; set aside.

PLACE half of the toasted bread in the prepared casserole dish. Gently and slowly pour ½ cup of milk mixture over bread ensuring all slices are wet. Spread peanuts, raisins and cheese on top. Top with remaining toasted bread (you may need to squish the bread a little to make all pieces fit). Gently and slowly pour remaining milk mixture over bread ensuring all slices are wet.

BEAT egg whites with 2 tablespoons granulated sugar until stiff peaks form. Spread meringue over bread. Sprinkle remaining 1 teaspoon granulated sugar and coconut over meringue.

BAKE for 10 minutes or until meringue is lightly golden. Top with additional peanuts, if desired. Serve immediately.
