Grammy’s French Toast

This is great because you can bake it straight from the freezer in about 10 minutes

8 eggs
1 cup half & half
2 Tbl. sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1/4 tsp. nutmeg [I don’t like nutmeg, so I use cinnamon]
1 loaf french bread, unsliced

1. Cut french bread in thick slices (at least 1” thick). Lay them in a single layer in a large shallow baking pan. 2. Mix together the rest of the ingredients with a wire whisk and pour over bread. Using a fork, gently lift and flip over each piece while tilting pan to be sure each piece is well coated. Do this until most of the egg mixture is absorbed into the bread. Place in freezer until firm - at least a couple of hours.
3. With spatula, remove each piece from pan and place in a zippered freezer bag.
4. To bake: heat oven to 450 deg. Butter both sides of a frozen toast and place on baking sheet. Bake about 10 minutes until well browned. If you are doing this in a toaster oven, place the buttered toast on a square piece of foil and place in toaster oven.

Note: if you want to eat some of this right away, you can cook it right after the soaking process in step 2.
