Panettone French Toast

4 servings
20 Minutes

This is a great recipe for guests because it looks fancy, but it's quick and easy. I really like to make it with the mini-panettone that I find at Trader Joe's (in the season).

If you've never tried making french toast with Panettone, you should try it. It is great because the bread is a little bit sweet and typically kind of dry, which makes it soak up all of the delicious egg and milk mixture.

Have you ever heard that you should make french toast with stale bread? That's why because it really soaks up all the moisture and makes the french toast more creamy and rich.

I like to serve it with bacon, fresh fruit and syrup (or just a light sprinkling of powdered sugar).

Wisk eggs and milk in a bowl.

Soak slices in the egg mixture.

Saute panettone slices in hot skillet.

Finished French toast.

French toast ingredients


How to Prepare

Slice the panettone into about 3/4 inch slices
In a shallow bowl or casserole dish, wisk three eggs together
Add milk (or half and half) to eggs and wisk
Sprinkle egg mixture with cinammon
Heat a skillet to medium and add butter. I make it in batches and add more butter with each batch.
Soak the panettone slices in the egg mixture
Saute in the butter on both sides.
Before serving, sprinkle with powdered sugar.


  • You can serve with syrup, but panettone is pretty sweet so you might not need it. Serve with fresh fruit and bacon.
