Nutella and Banana-Stuffed Panettone French Toast

Nutella and Banana-Stuffed Panettone French Toast from freshandfoodie.com @freshandfoodie

This isn’t really a recipe, but rather an idea. Everyone knows how to make French toast, right?

I love Panettone (the one from Whole Foods is especially good) and every Christmas morning I make Panettone French toast for my family. The other morning I was feeling festively creative (I guess I couldn’t wait until Christmas) and whipped up this little Nutella-stuffed gem.  I posted a picture of it on Instagram and people went insane, so I decided to share it with you.

It’ll definitely be making a repeat appearance on Christmas morning.

Happy holidays, everyone. Enjoy yourselves and each other.

Nutella and Banana-Stuffed Panettone French Toast (makes as many as you want)

What you need:

  • A loaf of Panettone, halved then cut into slices (you should get about 16 slices out of  a whole loaf)
  • Nutella
  • Banana, sliced on a diagonal bias to create wide slices
  • Eggs
  • Milk
  • Cinnamon
  • Maple syrup

How you do it:

  1. Make sandwiches by slathering as much Nutella and banana as you want between two slices of panettone. Set aside.
  2. Create a custard by mixing eggs, a splash of milk and a pinch of cinnamon together in a shallow bowl that’s large enough for dunking.
  3. Preheat a skillet over medium-high heat, and dunk each sandwich in the custard just before adding to the skillet. Cook for approximately 2 or 3 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Top with real maple syrup.

  1. Yum! I have a loaf of panettone waiting to be eaten but my boyfriend and I don’t enjoy eating it plain. I was going to making bread pudding with it but I think I’ll have to try french toast with it too!

  2. Wow. That looks evil in all the best ways. Top it with some fresh strawberries and it’s like getting to eat a banana split for breakfast.
