Panettone French Toast

Panettone bread is a sweet Italian bread.  It is yellow and color and has bits of fruit throughout.  It is one of my favorite Italian foods.  You can order it off line, Bunon Italia, an Italian market in Chelsea Market ships anywhere and they sell it or you can keep an eye out for it during the holiday season.  I actually found this loaf at TJ Maxx.

Panettone French Toast:


1/2 loaf of Panettone bread, cut into 1 inch slices
3 large eggs
1 1/2 cups of half and half
1 tsp almond extract
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp freshly grated nutmeg
1 tsp cinnamon
2 Tbsp butter

Whisk together all ingredients, except bread slices.  Soak bread slices in egg mixture.  Heat a skillet, griddle pan on medium heat.  Melt butter and add toast slices.  Cook for about 4 mins on each side until they are golden brown.  You can either sprinkle powdered sugar on top or serve with warm syrup.  If you are feeling frisky that day, just do both.
