Panettone French Toast with Apples and Pomegranate

Let me start by staying, this is not a typical breakfast in my house.  This is a rich and decadent holiday breakfast, suitable for Christmas morning, or a pre-soccer game brunch for 11 year olds.  🙂

Panettone is a traditional Milanese sweet bread that is enjoyed around Christmas and New Years throughout Europe.  It is an egg bread with a light and fluffy texture, and usually contains raisins, currents, candied orange, or other dried fruits.   It is widely available in the US around the holidays.  I have seen it at Whole Foods and Trader Joes.

I had some panettone left over from a holiday snack mix that I was making, so I decided to use the remaining pannetone to make a holiday french toast.  The results were delicious.  Enjoy!
