Panettone is a huge trend in the World and it’s one of the most representative Christmas dishes in Italy. It’s sweet but we Italians also have a savory one, called gastronomic panettone which is basically a big sandwich with multiple layers all filled with different ingredients.
It’s a friendly recipe and it’s usually made for Christmas but also when families gather to celebrate something because it’s versatile and it’s loved by people of all ages. If you want to make a gastronomic panettone at home you need to prepare the so called “pan canasta” a bread which is very similar to the American style bread for sandwiches using a round and quite high oven pan.
Being a salty one, the gastronomic panettone we can really be stuffed to taste: it’s common to use at least the mayonnaise to soften the bread. Each layer should be stuffed in a different way, however, giving a theme to panettone: if you choose fish, then everything will be stuffed with fish as well as if you choose vegetables and so on.
