      Thanks for posting this, Gio!

      I've made panettone/eggnog french toast for years (actually, the last few I've used Martha Stewart's Stollen) for Christmas morning. This year I'm going to go the muffin pan route.

      BTW, do people who use commercial eggnog add eggs? I would have assumed the eggs IN the eggnog are "cooked", so wouldn't work?

      I really like the idea of RR's individual muffins rather than a big pudding. Perfect for a party. Find a good eggnog too. Most readily available is Horizon Organic. A dairy near me makes wonderful eggnog this time of year. Eggnog is also very good for making french toast with challah, but panettone would work great too.

        I'd think it would be great! I've made french toast with panetone and it was wonderful! So I'm sure this will be great. Report back your results.

          Interesting question because I think the mixture you use with bread pudding is the same as egg nog (eggs, cream, sugar, nutmeg) so it's would just be a panetonne bread pudding when you come down to it. I'll bet panettone would be very good in it.

            Thanks all for your feedback so far! i love the idea of using muffin tins - it will be perfect for my cocktail party. i had the same question as Liz K, i love the idea of the richness from using prepared egg nog in place of cream or milk but Chowser is right - that it's really the same thing. I was also thinking that instead of the rum in RR's recipe, I'd use a little apricot brandy. What do ya'll think?

            hey all

            so i made this for my party on sat and it was a huge hit! i used RR's recipe and subbed apricot brandy for the rum. I served it with whipped cream with a little more apricot brandy in the cream for good measure. making it in the muffin tins was perfect for my party - thanks everyone!

              I've made a great eggnog French toast with nothing more than thick sliced bread, eggnog and a well oiled hot pan. I imagine an eggnog bread pudding would be great.

                I followed this recipe but used French bread instead of Panettone & added chocolate chips. I made them on Saturday night and everyone loved them! The muffin tins made it so much easier to serve.
