Panettone is an Italian Bread made at Christmas time. It is delicious made into a version of French Toast I like to call Italian Toast. I use Boiled Custard in the recipe because we like it better than Egg Nog or milk.

    Add butter pats (tsp) to the skillet one at a time and lay an eggy bread wedge on each pat of melting butter as you go (pick up the bread with the fork you whisked the eggs with.) Let the buttered, eggy, bread brown in the skillet 3-4 min.

    Just before flipping the bread add a pat of butter to the top of the bread. The butter should be on the skillet surface under the bread after it is flipped. Let this side brown 3-4 min. Transfer browned bread to a plate.
