French Toast and roasted peaches

After cooking and baking for a week for Christmas dinner, I was exhausted and my husband and I decide pass New Year’s Eve in a romantic home dinner. I roasted salmon, Caesar Salad and chocolate Mousse for dessert.

But traditions are traditions

As usually, yesterday I started my day making French toast. Is tradition in my family start the first morning of the year with French toast. Don’t ask me why. I don’t know how this tradition started, but my grand grand mom made for her children, then my mom and my sister and now is my turn
This time I made with panettone slices and garnish with baked peaches

4 slices of panettone
2 egg yolks
Pinch of cinnamon
1/2 cup whole milk
1 tbsp. caster sugar1 tbsp. unsalted butter
Icing sugar
In a large bowl, combine milk, egg yolks, sugar and cinnamon. Beat well with a whisk until mixed.
In a large pan, I used an iron pan; melt the butter over medium heat. Once the butter is melted, dip the slice in the cream mixture.
Saute the Panettone in the butter for a few minutes on each side. Transfer to a plate
Sprinkle with ice sugar.

Roasted Peaches


3 fresh peaches
2 tbsp.organic brown sugar
1 tbsp butter

Wash well the peaches, cut in longitudinal shape and take of the pit.
Transfer for a shallow roasting pan and sprinkle whit brown sugar.
Cut butter in small squares and put over the fruit.
Take from preheat oven (about 220°C) for 6 or 8 minutes for each side
If you like, you can sprinkle the peaches with chopped pistachios too

The roasted peaches look really good. I imagine that they would go well with french toast.
