It’s finally getting a little cooler in many areas and it’s only going to be colder by the time Christmas comes. Now doesn’t a warm cup of coffee with a rather large helping of Panettone french toast casserole sound absolutely tasty? That’s a no brainer!
(And set this one aside to wow any guests you may have staying with you for the holidays!)
Now this isn’t your typical French toast, but it’s totally easy to make, and unlike regular French toast, you don’t have to waste time flipping slices all morning, because it’s a casserole! You can make this for Christmas breakfast or any morning and your entire family will love it, (and you!) for making it. Just make sure to bring a big spoon so everyone can help themselves to a big piece. Here’s what you’ll need to create the perfect Panettone French toast casserole.
- Butter or vegetable oil to grease your dish
- 1 medium panettone
- 1 cup milk (any kind will do)
- 8 tablespoons of cream cheese
- 6 large eggs
- 1 cup of cherry jam
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar which can be substituted by liquid stevia
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon ginger
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/3 cup nuts (substitute for almonds if you like!)
- Confectioners’ sugar for dusting
Begin by greasing a 3-quart casserole dish with butter or vegetable oil, (they both work great!) and afterwards, put it aside. Now, cut the Panettone into 5 or 6 semi thick slices, (1-inch or so).
