4 bread slices thick, homemade or 6 slices of regular store-bought
Spray a 13x9 pan with nonstick spray. If using homemade bread, cut slices in half, and fit them into the pan. If using regular bread, fit it into thepan however you can (cut in half if necessary). Beat eggs well, and mix inmilk and rum/brandy. Pour evenly over bread. Sprinkle lightly with cinnamon and nutmeg, and bake at 400 for about 20 minutes. Check to see thatit doesn't burn. It should be browned and firmly set. Serve with your favorite topping, but it goes very well with pure maple syrup.
(It is best to let the bread soak up the egg mixture for a few minutes beforebaking, but you could let it soak for a few hours or overnight-just be sureto cover it with plastic wrap.)
NOTES : Since we are doing breakfast recipes, we made a very tasty french toastrecently that I will share. FYI, we used whole eggs, because we allow forit in our diets once a week. You can use Eggbeaters equivalent for thesame results. Measures are approximate, and can be adjusted to suit yourtaste. This is very easy.
