  • 1
    1 loaf Panettone; cut 1 1/2" thick sliced crosswise
    8 large Eggs
    1/2 cup Heavy Cream
    1 teaspoon Freshly Grated Nutmeg
    Splash Vanilla Extract
    Pinch of Salt
    8 tablespoons Unsalted Butter
    1/4 Raw Sugar
    Maple Syrup; to serve
    Powdered Sugar; to garnish
    For Simple
    In a large rimmed baking dish, whisk together the Eggs, Heavy Cream, Nutmeg, Vanilla and Salt until lightened. Dredge the slices of Bread in the mixture, working in batches, soaking up the mixture and coating both sides completely. Sprinkle generously with Raw Sugar.

    Heat a large non-stick skillet or cast iron griddle over medium and grease with a few tablespoons of Butter. Place the dredged Panettone onto the surface and cook for 3-4 minutes or until golden. Flip and continue to cook until golden on both sides, about 3 more minutes. Remove to a plate and tent with foil while cooking the remaining slices. Serve each warm with Maple Syrup and Powdered Sugar.

    4 tablespoons Butter
    1 1/2 pounds Hot Italian Sausage
    1/4 cup Flour
    4 cups Milk
    For Special
    Heat the Butter in a large skillet over low. Place the Sausage into the pan and allow to cook without stirring for 10 minutes. Stir with a wooden spoon to loosen any bits from the pan. Increase the heat to medium and cook for 10 more minutes, stirring occasionally, until crispy. Using a slotted spoon, remove to a plate. Add the Flour to the pan and cook until just wet sand consistency. Whisk in the Milk and bring to a boil, and cook until thickened. Add the Sausage back to the Gravy.

    Serve Sausage Gravy on top of Panettone French Toast.

    Helpful Tips:
    1. Panettone is a sweet dessert cake enjoyed around the world – most commonly served on Christmas and new year  
    2. You want to slice large single pieces. This isn’t to make a large stack of French toast. Just a few pieces.
    3. Don’t soak the panettone too long in the milk mixture. The bread is already very soft.
