Serves: 4-5
Easy, no fuss breakfast dish. Perfect with a cup of coffee and the flavors I think are improved after it has cooled to room temperature.
  • Half loaf of Bread, sliced*
  • 4 Eggs
  • 2 cups Milk
  • 4 Tablespoons Sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon Cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon Nutmeg
  • ¼ teaspoon Salt
  • 2 teaspoons Vanilla
  • Butter
  • Brown Sugar
  1. Butter the baking dish that you intend to use and lay out the bread slices.
  2. Mix together: eggs, milk, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt and vanilla and mix well.
  3. Pour mixture over the bread slices.
  4. Dot the top with pats of butter and sprinkle with brown sugar.
  5. Bake at 350 degrees F for 45 minutes to an hour. Bake until it is nicely browned and it looks like all the milk mixture has been absorbed.
This time, I used the left over bread from my daughter's baking efforts. You can use french bread, challah or regular ol' loaf bread. I also made a smaller batch than usual, only using half a loaf and a smaller pan (equivalent to 9x9 inch square pan). The measurements above are approximations. I put the dish together without measuring, just eyeballing. Adjust according to your taste and preference.
