  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 cup 2% milk
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 10 slices day-old French bread (3/4 inch thick)
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons butter

  1. In a large bowl, beat eggs, milk, sugar, vanilla and nutmeg. Place bread in a well-greased 13x9-in. baking dish. Pour egg mixture over bread. Let soak for several minutes, turning once to coat. Freeze until firm. Transfer slices to airtight containers; return to freezer.
