Cut panettone into 6 round slices about 1-inch (2 1/2 cm) thick.

In a bowl, beat eggs with milk and vanilla extract.

Preheat oven to 250 ºF (120 ºC). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Heat 1 or 2 large skillet(s) over medium heat and melt a little butter.

Soak a slice of panettone in the milk mixture. Drain and place in hot skillet(s). Cook 4–5 minutes on each side. Place on baking sheet, reserve in hot oven and repeat with the remaining slices.

Assemble browned panettone slices on a serving plate: top bottom slice with Brie. Add a second slice of panettone and spread it with some dulce de leche. Add a third slice and top with Brie and so on.

Place at the centre of the table and cut into wedges to serve.


The panettone slices can be cooked in advance and stored in the refrigerator. Reheat in the oven at 350 ºF (180 ºC) for 15 minutes before assembling.
