Panettone for Breakfast

To give a standard breakfast a holiday flavor, make it from panettone, the traditional Italian Christmas bread, available in grocery and specialty stores at this time of year.

Panettone for Breakfast How-To

Cut 1-inch slices of panettone. For every four slices, whisk together 4 eggs, 1 cup of heavy cream or milk, 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract, 1/4 teaspoon each of cinnamon and nutmeg, and a pinch of salt; or use your favorite French toast recipe.

Soak panettone in egg mixture for 20 minutes, turning once. Fry in a mixture of equal parts butter and vegetable oil until golden brown. Keep warm on a wire rack placed on a baking sheet in a 250 degree oven. Serve with maple syrup.

    Something similar is done from bread and eggs- cut slices from the bread, slightly wet both sides of the slices with water and leave aside for a while. Whisk 3 or four eggs. Dip well each slice of bread into the eggs and fry from both sides in a deep frying pan. The fried slices are served with sugar or marmalade or jam.
