Luca Manfe's Panettone French Toast

(4 serving)

  • 2 egg yolks for egg mixture
  • 1 egg for topping
  • 1 tsp of salt
  • 2 tbsp of butter
  • 3 slices of bacon
  • 1/2 Fresh Lemon



  • Eggs
  • Bacon

Step 1

In a glass bowl, over boiling water, place the two egg yolks and gently whisk. 

Step 2

Place 2 tbsp of butter in a separate saucepan to melt.

Step 3

While butter is melting, and egg mixture is thickening, place slices of bacon on a skillet to cook.

Step 4

Add the melted butter to a smaller glass bowl and then transfer it into the whisked egg mixture with 1 tsp of salt.

Step 5

Squeeze half of a fresh lemon into the egg mixture.

Step 6

Continue whisking and flip bacon to cook fully.

Step 7

Next, slice Panettone into thicker sections for toasting on the skillet.

Step 8

Meanwhile fry an egg to add to the topping of the french toast later.

Step 9

Make sure to place the egg mixture-now with lemon, butter, a pinch of salt-over heat again, and continue whisking.

Step 10

Once Panettone is toasted, the egg is cooked, and the egg mixture has thickened, transfer all to a plate and enjoy!
