  1. Lay the bread slices in one layer in a shallow baking dish.
  2. Break the eggs into a 2-cup measuring jug. Gradually beat in just enough milk, about 3/4 cup, to bring the batter up to a generous 1 cup. Add freshly grated nutmeg and beat well.
  3. Pour the mixture over the panettone slices and let them soak up the liquid. After a couple of minutes, turn the slices over to make sure they are soaked evenly.
  4. Grease a skillet with the butter. Heat over a medium-high flame. When the skillet is hot and the butter is melted and bubbling, place the slices of soaked panettone in the skillet. Gently spoon any leftover egg mixture over the tops of the bread slices as you cook them. When the down-side of the bread is done to a golden brown, flip the slice over and cook until the other side golden too, and serve immediately. That’s it!

Chef Tips

To make this really decadent, use unsweetened evaporated milk instead of whole milk

To cut the panettone: first cut the loaf in half, top to bottom and slice. Make the slices around ¾” thick. Cut each slice in half to make it easier to handle.
