We are the month of February and I still have Panettone in my pantry!
Panettone! That Italian cake everyone receives or re-gifts during Christmas*. This, I have to tell you, was not a gift nor a re-gift.
Before Christmas, my husband sent me a picture on my Iphone to show me the mega-size Panettone Costco received. Eleven lbs of Panettone…
”Niiicccce…!” I texted back.
Actual picture he sent me!!!
I didn’t expect him to come home with it! We cut it up into 8 pieces. Two pieces we ate. One piece we gave to a friend (not considered re-gifting). Five pieces to go…Okay! Four because I just used one for the Panettone French Toast.
1 Tbsp Sugar
1/3 cup Milk
6 Panettone slices, cut about 3/4 inch thick and crust removed
Maple syrup and Fresh fruits for garnishing
In a shallow bowl, beat eggs and sugar. Add the milk and beat until well blended.
Put stove on medium to high heat. In a pan, add 1 tbsp of butter. Swirl the butter to coat the pan. Do not burn the butter.
Take a slice of Panettone and dip one side into the egg mixture and then dip the other side. Let the Panettone soak up just a bit of the egg mixture. Place in the pan and cook for 3 minutes or until golden. Flip the slice of Panettone with a spatula and cook for 3 more minutes.
Garnish with fresh fruits and Quebec Maple Syrup!
*A little story about The Re-Gifted Panettone….One Christmas, a friend bought a Panettone and marked the bottom of the box. He brought it to a relative’s house during the festive season. Two weeks later, he had guests over for supper. One guest brought him a Panettone! Guess where the Panettone came from??? It was the one he marked! Lol!
