You Need to Try Buddy Valastro’s 'Intoxicating' Panettone French Toast

Buddy Valastro is here to make your holiday celebrations a bit sweeter! The celebrity chef may be known for his expertise with cakes, but his culinary skill set extends way beyond dessert, even if cake is in the forefront of his mind.

Case in point: Valastro, 41, is sharing his panettone French toast recipe with Us Weekly. The dish, which is on the menu at the reality star’s Buddy V’s Ristorante outposts across the country, combines the breakfast classic with panettone – an Italian sweet bread loaf typically eaten around Christmas.

“This dish is a big holiday tradition around the Valastro household and something we love devouring on a winter morning,” the Cake Boss star explained to Us. “The smell is intoxicating!”

And even though the recipe below is kid-friendly and liquor-free, Valastro adds that he often puts his “own little spin” on the dish by adding amaretto liqueur, which makes the French toast “that much more memorable and delicious.”
