How to Make Giada's Panettone French Toast - Food Network
Panettone Bread Pudding with Amaretto Sauce
This Panettone bread pudding with cinnamon syrup is the perfect use for Christmas panettone. Plus it makes a delicious Christmas morning breakfast or dessert. Onto the bread pudding. I had a whole loaf of panettone bread in my pantry just dying to be used. Have you ever had panettone before? Perfect with coffee, tea or warm wine….
Panettone is a Christmas tradition in Europe and South America, where it was introduced by Italian immigrants, but here, a lot of us are still figuring out what to do with it. Things like using it for French toast, tiramisu, mini Nutella sandwiches, and — hold everything — bread pudding. Moist, sweet panettone soaked in custard, baked until it puffs and drizzled with a simple but thoroughly decadent warm amaretto sauce, which could easily be transformed into a warm bourbon sauce, or spiced rum, or Grand Marnier. Or, you could skip the booze completely and use almond extract. No judgments here.

Recipe of the Day: Giada's Panettone Bread Pudding with Amaretto Sauce - Food Network
Are you ready for some crazy deliciousness? This bread pudding is our traditional Christmas morning dish! Christmas season is usually when you can find Panettone stocked on almost every shelf. However, many stores carry it year round. When ever I see it, I stock up. I've done that when I'm too lazy to let this recipe soak for the 30 minutes it's supposed to soak.
I often joke that in the event of a nuclear apocalypse, only three things would survive: Twinkies, roaches, and few ribbon-wrapped panettone loaves. Hence, hell on Earth. Although there is no hope for making Twinkies more palatable, panettone can actually be quite delicious when used in other recipes. It makes a great base for stuffing, a flavorful bread for French toast, and of course, a delicious bread pudding! I recently decided to try this bread pudding recipe from Giada de Laurentiis because I saw that it came with a warm Amaretto sauce drizzle.
