For the French Toast:

  • Butter for the pan
  • 1 loaf of French Bread about 14 oz.
  • 8 Large Eggs

  • 2 TBSP Light Corn Syrup
  • 1/2 tsp Ground Nutmeg

Night Before

  • Butter 9x13 casserole dish generously
  • Cut French Bread into 1 inch thick slices. Arrange in 2 long rows in casserole dish, overlapping slices.
  • In large bowl combine eggs, creamer, milk, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt. Beat with electric beaters until well blended but not too bubbly. Pour over bread slices to evenly cover all pieces. Spoon egg/milk mixture between slices to cover all bread with mixture. Cover dish with foil and refrigerate overnight about 8 hours

  • Serve warm with syrup if desired (I never see the need for it)
