Panettone French Toast

I recently received two samples of Bauducco Panettone through the Foodbuzz Tastemaker program.

Everyone was very excited to try the panettone, especially the one with Hershey’s chocolate chips:

The panettone tasted great as is, and even though it was really hot and summery at the end of September here in California, it put me into a holiday kind of mood. Panettone is a traditional bread eaten around Christmas and New Year’s time in Italy and elsewhere in Europe, and growing up, I ate Panettone quite regularly.

The panettone we received came with some recipes, and one of it was for French toast.

I don’t make French toast very often, but hubby and the toddler love it, so I made some. Since the panettone is quite rich, I decided it would be perfect for dessert. I followed the recipe but substituted Greek yogurt for the sour cream and also added a few vanilla drops to the egg mixture.

A nice, sweet treat! I froze the rest of the bread, and we’ll enjoy it little by little as a special treat once in a while over the next few months. Thanks Bauducco Panettone and Foodbuzz Tastemaker program for making our lives a bit sweeter! Smile

Questions: Have you ever had panettone? If so, do you like it? Do you like French toast? 

Be well,
