My third share is this one of a kind, completely sinful, 100% satisfying Panettone French Toast.

After an 18 mile run, an apple and an Arbonne shake, I was STILL hungry.  I stood in the kitchen, my legs aching from the run, looking at the two boxes of Bauducco Panettone that arrived yesterday from the Foodbuzz Tastemaker program.  Did I have the energy to stand over a stove and make the French toast recipe suggested in the paperwork?  Ted decided for me.  “The chocolate chip French Toast sounds good.” 


If you’ve been good all week.  You’ve chosen all healthy options for your meals, you’ve done all your scheduled workouts, and you’ve “loved thy neighbor”, then I suggest you treat yourself to a little slice of heaven and make the French toast using Bauducco’s famous Panettone Specialty Cake:  Thick, sweet, moist, and a perfect balance between a moist bread and a sweet cake. 


Panettone French Toast


  • (2) 3/4 inch slices of Bauducco Panettone
  • (2) large eggs
  • (1) heaping TBS sour cream (I used fat free for all the good it did – see my next comment by the milk)
  • (2) TBS milk (no milk in the house, I used heavy cream. If you’re going to cheat, go all the way, right?!)
  • Butter ( I used Healthy Heart Promise.  What a case of contradiction!)

Beat the eggs, sour cream and milk heavy cream in a shallow, flat bottomed dish.  Place bread slice in the dish and flip over to soak both sides.  Heat the skillet over medium heat and add the butter Healthy Heart Promise to melt.  Add the saturated Panettone to the heated skillet and cook for 3 – 4 minutes per side for a firm center. Top with butter or margarine, drizzle with syrup or use powdered sugar.


I can tell, after eating this, and not stopping after one HUGE slice, I’m going to have to get out there for another 18 miles!  No, I take that back.  I deserve this delicious meal so I’m going to thoroughly enjoy every moist, sweet, chocolate, sinful bite.  I might even just put my feet up and take a nap.  Sometimes you just have to reward yourself for all the hard work. It feels so NICE!

What about it guys? What are you going to do today to reward yourself for all your hard work?
